Costa Rican exports increased 5% during the first four months of the year, reaching $3,199 million, according to the Foreign Trade Promoter (PROCOMER).
The industrial and agriculture sectors grew 7% and 3%, respectively. However, livestock and fisheries sector fell by 10%.
In addition, exports grew in different regions except Asia.
The products that show greater dynamism are: medical devices, pineapple, banana, watermelon, roots and tubers, sugar, fruit juices and concentrates.
However, other products showed significant declines, such as coffee, ornamental plants and foliage, bovine meat and laminates.
The decline in the livestock sector is mainly due to international market conditions and climatic variables.
