Costa Rica was asked to join the bloc last year at the Pacific Alliance meeting in Cali, Colombia. Today, the presidents of the member countries Juan Manuel Santos (Colombia) Sebastian Piñera (Chile), Enrique Peña Nieto (Mexico), Ollanta Humala (Peru) and Laura Chinchilla (Costa Rica) met at the Cartagena Convention Centre.

The trade bloc comprises half of Latin America’s population, with a market of some 212 million people.
