Costa Rica Trade Mission - Puerto Rico

This March we had the privilege of being part of a significant event in the field of international trade: the Costa Rica – Puerto Rico 2024 Trade Mission. Thanks to the invitation of PROCOMER, we represent our agency with the objective of forging and strengthening commercial alliances with leading companies in key sectors.

During the mission, we had the opportunity to participate in a series of strategic meetings with companies from the medical, technological, logistics, automotive and industrial automation sectors, in one-on-one meetings that were also part of the event.

These meetings represent the first step towards fruitful business relationships and mark the beginning of a collaborative process that we will continue to develop in the coming days.

Puerto Rico: island of opportunities

The meeting was inaugurated with a meeting between the Minister of Foreign Trade of Costa Rica, Manuel Tovar, and the Secretary of Economic Development and Commerce of Puerto Rico, Manuel Cidre. Both leaders highlighted the importance of promoting the exchange of goods and services, as well as investments between both regions. This reflects the spirit of cooperation and the search for joint strategies that benefit both economies.

Laura López, General Manager of PROCOMER, highlighted the strategic importance of the visit of the Puerto Rican business delegation to diversify the origin of foreign direct investment in Costa Rica.

Trade between Costa Rica and Puerto Rico has shown steady growth, with total trade in goods reaching an annual average of US$171,0 million between 2014 and 2023.

Impact and Future Opportunities

The Trade Mission not only served to strengthen existing trade ties, but also to open new doors in emerging and traditional sectors. Costa Rican export products such as medical devices, beef and agricultural products were highlighted, underscoring the diversity and strength of our exportable offer.

Additionally, the mission included business rounds and training for entrepreneurs, providing a valuable platform to better understand the way of doing business in Costa Rica and explore new market opportunities.

As we conclude our participation in the Costa Rica – Puerto Rico 2024 Trade Mission, we feel inspired and optimistic about the future of our trade alliances. This experience not only aims to strengthen our position in the international market, but has also highlighted our commitment to excellence and innovation in the field of digital marketing and SEO positioning strategies.

We are excited about the opportunities that have opened up and committed to continuing to collaborate with our current and future partners to reach new business horizons.
