The Association Agreement between Central America and the United Kingdom entered into force on January 1

The Association Agreement between Central America and the United Kingdom (Aacru), which was signed on July 18, 2019, and that will maintain the advantageous conditions of Costa Rica's trade with the UK after its departure from the European Union, entered into force on January 1, 2021.

This instrument supports the benefits that Costa Rican exports have had since the entry into force of the Association Agreement between Central America and the European Union (Aacue), on October 1, 2013, stated the Ministry of Foreign Trade (Comex). The same applies to access under preferential conditions for British products to the Costa Rican market, the Ministry added.

Comex also stated that it has been working with its UK counterparts to ensure an orderly transition to Aacru implementation.

Those interested in expanding any information about Aacru or asking questions regarding its application can do so via Comex's email pep@comex.go.cr and other institutional channels available.

Costa Rica mainly exports bananas, pineapples, and melons, among other products, to the United Kingdom (based on 2019 data).
