Chambers in Dispute with Exporting Companies

In Costa Rica the Chamber of Importers (CRECEX) has began signing up members and providing services to exporters, while the Chamber of Exporters (CADEXCO) is experiencing an institutional crisis.

Thursday, July 5, 2012

CRECEX has announced the start of the program "Export CRECEX" directed at the export sector.

"The plan to attract exporters to CRECEX is taking shape while Cadexco is still in a process of internal fragmentation, known about publicly since 27 January. The administrative situation has separate the then executive vice president from the exporters, Sergio Navas", writes Marvin Barquero in

Internal problems which occurred in Cadexo prompted the resignation of several directors and the disaffiliation of exporting companies.
