    “The competitiveness of the export and domestic importer market is driving force for redesigning the new technology platform VUCE 2.0, which will radically streamline all processes,” said the CEO of International Trade (Procomer) Jorge Sequeira.

    Meanwhile, Costa Rican President Laura Chinchilla said that the tool is an achievement for competitiveness and an example of the paperwork reduction improvements proposed by her administration.

    “We have recognized international organizations like the World Economic Forum and the World Bank in 2012 in order to qualify Costa Rica as one of 10 economies that made substantial institutional reforms in order to improve its regulatory framework,” said the president in a statement.

    The government reports that the system offers a platform that allows approvals in minutes between state institutions that are involved in foreign trade procedures.

    For the Chamber of Industries in Costa Rica (ICRC), this is a big step in the export sector to allow access to efficient and competitive technological tools. (ACAN-EFE)
