Costa Rica | Free Trade Commission eliminates customs duties for certain products from China
The Free Trade Commission provided for in the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the Republic of Costa Rica and the People's Republic of China agreed to grant Costa Rica's tariff reduction program a 0% import-tariff rate for products of tariff items 2101.20.10 (preparations based on tea extract, in powder form, for industrial processing) and 8516.60.00 (ovens, stoves, grills and roasters).
Therefore, through Circular MH-DGA-CIR-0026--2023, the Directorate General of Customs (DGA) informs the public that this decision will be effective as of 11 May 2023 and that the tariff reduction for the products of the indicated items will be included in the Customs Information System (TICA).
