accounting for about 47 percent of Costa Rica’s total imports. Under the
Central America-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR), 100 percent
of U.S. consumer and industrial goods exports to the region are no longer
subject to tariffs. Costa Rica’s economic and political stability have made it
historically the leader in the region for international business and tourism.
Participants in the webinar will hear first-hand market insight from the U.S.
Commercial Service in Costa Rica and will have the opportunity to raise
questions to address specific interests. Participants will also receive
information about the opportunity to attend the Auto Care Association's trade mission to Costa
Rica taking place, May 21-22, 2018.
The Auto Care Association's trade missions are a part of the Market
Development Cooperator Program (MDCP) award the association recently received from the U.S. Department of Commerce
to help the automotive industry increase exports to free trade agreement
partners in Latin America.
