Following the signing of a free trade agreement between South Korea and Central American nations Costa Rica, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama in late February, the Costa Rican Embassy has opened a trade and investment office in Seoul.

The trade pact will eliminate duties on about 95% of traded goods and services for the participating countries. It is subject to each country’s parliamentary approval, and is likely to come into force at different times pursuant to the ratification.

“Costa Rica has diversified its economy while exporting over 4,500 different products to more than 150 countries worldwide,” said the embassy. “Our export items include electronic components, biomedical devices, software and agricultural produce.”
