    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Experts from twenty countries are participating in Costa Rica for the Fifth International Congress of Bananas, which challenges the sector to analyze areas such as science and marketing.

    The event was inaugurated by the Second Vice President of Costa Rica, Luis Liberman, the president of the board of the Costa Rican National Banana Corporation (Corbana), Eduardo Gómez and other government authorities.

    Liberman described the event as the most important commercial scientific meeting of the banana industry and noted some of the challenges facing the sector to improve productivity and remain a force in the international market.

    “These are hard times as global warming is affecting  the productivity and social environment of the banana sector. There are droughts, hurricanes, floods and pests caused by these climatic changes,” said the official.

    Meanwhile, the Costa Rican Vice Minister of Foreign Trade, Fernando Ocampo, said that Costa Rica produces “the best bananas in the world” and highlighted the progress that has taken place in the industry regarding environmental and social sustainability.

    The International Banana Congress will conclude on Thursday, and includes over 600 international experts and entrepreneurs from around twenty countries, who are discussing topics such as the environment, research and marketing in the banana sector.

    Participants will include representatives from countries such as India, Lebanon, France, United States, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Central American nations, among others.

    The main theme of the forum is “Challenges of the Banana Market” and will feature a series of presentations by 30 different experts.

    Costa Rica is one of the world’s leading banana exporters with annual sales of 105 million cases and around $800 million dollars. (ACAN-EFE)
