Enterprise Florida, Inc. will lead an export sales mission to San Jose, Costa Rica, February 26 – March 1, 2018. The country of Costa Rica holds vast opportunities for Florida companies interested in increasing their footprint in the Central American market. Facilitated by the U.S.-Central America Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA-DR), the U.S. has become the chief trading partner for Costa Rica and exporters benefit from eliminated tariffs and barriers.
Bilateral trade between the U.S. and Costa Rica totaled $10.2 billion in 2016, where Florida was the leading state for two way trade. Costa Rica ranks as Florida’s 12th merchandise trading partner having exported nearly $3.6 billion in merchandise in 2016.
Enterprise Florida, Inc. will offer a limited number of Gold Key Matchmaking one-on-one appointments. The price of this service is $1,250. Small and midsized Florida manufacturers, eligible high tech companies and professional service providers may qualify for a Gold Key Grant, which will offset 100% of the Matchmaking Registration fee for the first company representative. A separate application process will be required for this grant. Participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.
