The Promoter of Foreign Trade of Costa Rica (Procomer) reported today that a study determined that in Australia there are export opportunities for more than a hundred Costa Rican products.
The "Mapping of Australia" study by Procomer indicates that at least 120 producers in sectors such as electrical and electronic, metal-mechanic, food, chemical and agricultural sectors have the potential to be commercialized in the Australian market.
"It is a specialized market, with a conjuncture in its productive structure and consumer conditions that may be beneficial for Costa Rican businessmen," Procomer's commercial intelligence director Marta Esquivel said in a statement.
The study indicates that Australian consumers are showing trends in consumption towards lifestyle and healthy eating.
These trends favor products and services such as electronic commerce, organic vegetables, foods without added sugar, without artificial or completely natural ingredients;
In addition, Procomer determined that in recent years Australia has shown an interest in approaching Latin America, which is a factor that can facilitate trade in Costa Rican products.
In 2017, exports from Costa Rica to Australia totaled 32 million dollars and were concentrated in the agricultural sector and medical devices, according to official data.
