United States Hispanic Chamber Of Commerce To Host Historic Trade Mission To Costa Rica

WASHINGTON — The United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) is hosting a trade mission to San Jose, Costa Rica on June 28 & 29, 2001. The USHCC International Committee, along with its Costa Rican partners, the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) and the Costa Rica Chamber of Commerce (Camara de Comercio de Costa Rica), are coordinating the Trade Mission.

This mission is the result of the USHCC's focus on international business opportunities as one of its top priorities. The USHCC Trade Mission will enable individual participants to better understand the feasibility of expanding beyond our borders into a country where a thriving economy and other incentives have attracted many U.S. based corporations and businesses.

Costa Rica offers tremendous opportunities for U.S. exports, investments and business partnerships. There is extensive demand for many of the most competitive products, services and technology that the U.S. has to offer. Many U.S. companies have a significant presence in this Central American country.

The scheduled arrival date into San Jose, Costa Rica is Wednesday, June 27, 2001. Special airfares have been arranged with American Airlines to provide discounted fares to USHCC Trade Mission participants flying into San Josi. The Trade Mission will be headquartered at the Costa Rica Marriott at San Antonio de Belen, San Josi, Costa Rica.
