    Exports to the United States rose 24.1% in 2010, according to figures provided by the Promotora del Comercio Exterior de Costa Rica (PROCOMER).

    According to Anabel González, Minister of Foreign Trade and Chairman of the Board of PROCOMER, this increase is due to the Dominican Republic – Central America Free Trade Agreement (DR-CAFTA), among other measures.

    “2010 was a scenario of slow recovery for the international economy, the impact was visible in the export sector, however, the results show that Costa Rica was able to successfully overcome this period through different actions including the implementation of CAFTA,” said the minister.

    In total, Costa Rica exported U.S. $13,591.6 million, surpassing the ₡192 million proposed export target for 2010 (U.S. $13,400 million).
