Aiming to strengthen economic and trade relations with the emirate, Costa Rica has recently unveiled plans to open a trade representative office in Dubai.

H.E. Manuel González Sanz, foreign affairs and worship minister, Costa Rica, made the announcement during a meeting in San Jose which was attended by a delegation led by Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI).

The new trade office will be hosted by DCCI and will serve as a platform for promoting bilateral ties and identify opportunities in the Dubai market that Costa Rican companies can benefit from.

The visit to the Latin American country is part of DCCI's  second trade mission to the region, which also covers Panama and Colombia.
