The president of the Port Authority of the Bay of Algeciras, Gerardo Landaluce, and the general manager of the Costa Rican Foreign Trade Promoter, Pedro Beirute, signed an agreement on Wednesday, September 18, which aims to consolidate and boost trade relations between Costa Rica and Spain at the logistics level.
The Spanish official stressed that the port and Procomer have been collaborating for years in the opening of new markets for Costa Rica and windows of opportunity in trade, a relationship they seek to strengthen with the new agreement.
Landaluce said that 60% of the pineapple consumed in Spain, as well as other products such as bananas, tubers, and papaya, among others, are some of the Costa Rican products that enter through the Port of Algeciras.
The general manager of Procomer, Pedro Beirute, said that this agreement will allow Costa Rica to open opportunities in Spain, as well as in other Mediterranean regions, such as the Middle East and Turkey.
This agreement is part of the activities carried out at the BTM trade fair, in which some 500 Costa Rican companies seek to do business with about 250 companies from 35 countries.
