- Aims to enhance trade exchange and to sign a number of cooperation agreements
The Sharjah Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SCCI) is organizing an official visit to the Republic of Costa Rica which will take place from the 16th to the 20th of January. The visit aims to raise the levels of economic and trade relations and mutual investment between companies and institutions from the private sector in the two friendly countries.
The visit comes within the framework of the Chamber’s keenness to develop its relations with various countries around the world, and to explore the areas of trade cooperation and mutual investment opportunities, which serves the interests of the business community in Sharjah and enhance its presence in various international markets.
During the visit, the Chamber will review the incentives, privileges and the various forms of support and assistance provided by Sharjah to foreign companies that operate in the various sectors that fit the economic vision of Sharjah, which helps in the encouragement of the business community in Costa Rica to increase its investment in the Emirate.
The visit will include the signing of a number of memorandums of understanding (MOU) and cooperation agreements in the academic and scientific field between the American University of Sharjah and a number of Costa Rican universities, in order to achieve common interests between the two countries.
He Khaled bin Butti Al Hajeri, Director General of the SCCI, stated that the visit of the economic delegation will include field trips to a number of economic, academic and cultural institutions in Costa Rica. He added that this is a translation of the wise directives of the Government concerning enhancing coordination and communication between government agencies and the private sector in friendly countries, in order to contribute jointly to the development of areas of cooperation.
Al Hajeri stated that the mission will hold a number of meetings with officials and will organize field trips to prominent and distinctive investment projects, especially in the fields of renewable energy, green economy, tourism, agriculture, education and medicine.
The visit comes as a result of the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between SCCI and the Costa Rican National Agency for Export Promotion (PROCOMER) during a visit to Sharjah last year by H.E. Luis Guillermo Solis Rivera, President of the Republic of Costa Rica, during which the president held a number of meetings with Chamber officials and representatives of the local business community. The MOU aims to develop cooperation between them, and strengthen trade relations between the Republic of Costa Rica and Sharjah in the framework of common interests.
