    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Exports on Costa Rican goods grew by 0.2% during the first ten months of 2013, representing a slight recovery after months of decline.

    According to data released by the Foreign Trade Promoter (Procomer), exports from January to October 2013 stood at U.S. $ 9.522 million, up 0.2% from $9.503 million in the comparable period of 2012.

    “We are seeing a slight recovery in exports and continue to work to boost the export sector in the international economy,” said the Foreign Trade Minister, Anabel González.

    The official said that Costa Rica will also work to foster productive relationships, identify new markets and explore business opportunities in different regions of the world.

    Costa Rica’s exports fell for five consecutive months to 0.2% growth in October that accumulated.

    “Faced with the complex international economic environment, it is encouraging to see a slight recovery in Costa Rican exports,” said Procomer general manager, Jorge Sequeira.
