    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Data released today by the Foreign Trade Promoter (Procomer) indicated that from January to September, Costa Rican exports of goods totaled $8.5 million, which is 0.5% less than in 2012.

    The Costa Rican Foreign Trade Minister, Anabel Gonzalez said in a statement that Costa Rica, “has been concentrating efforts to diversify export markets and achieved growth in countries such as Colombia, Ecuador, China, Malaysia, Aruba, Belize, Ireland, Sweden, Turkey and India.”

    “Despite the overall economy which has been volatile and unpredictable, we will continue to strengthen efforts to identify new markets and continue positioning the country in the international economy so we can create more opportunities,” said the minister.

    Exports of Intel, a microprocessors company, were a major export of Costa Rica, reaching $1.7 million dollars in the first nine months of 2013 of, representing an increase of 7.1% compared to the same period in 2012.

    Pineapples are another product that has continued to grow during 2013, with sales up 4.6% from January to September last year.

    “The decline in exports is reflected in agriculture, metallurgy, textiles, leather, footwear, and rubber, mainly due to the behavior of the global economy as well as for specific reasons related to production adjustments in business and the decline in international prices, “said Procomer.
