Country’s promotional arm opens Qatar office

Promotora del Comercio Exterior de Costa Rica has opened an office in Doha, Qatar, in anticipation of increasing trade in the Middle East.

The promotional organization describes itself as a public but non-governmental agency. It is allied closely with the Ministerio de Comercio Exterior.

Qatar is known for its petroleum and liquid gas production and spectacular urban growth. The country, a monarchy, is scheduled to host the 2022 World Cup soccer championships.

Costa Rica exported $220,000 in goods to Qatar last year, mostly in ornamental plants.

The Persian Gulf state is a western ally against terrorism.
