SAN JOSE, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) — China-Costa Rica diplomatic relations, which were established just seven months ago, have made rapid progress and will have a “very good” future, Chinese Ambassador to San Jose Wang Xiaoyuan said Friday.
Speaking at the Foreign Press Association in Costa Rica, Wang said that China and Costa Rica have carried out intense high-level exchanges since the two countries opened diplomatic ties on June 1.
Wang cited Costa Rican President Oscar Arias’ visit to China in late October, during which 12 accords were signed on bilateral cooperation in various sectors, including politics, economy, trade, culture, oil and banking.
Wang said Chinese President Hu Jintao will visit Costa Rica on a convenient date since he has been invited by Arias.
The cooperation between China and Costa Rica has great potential and it is real, Wang said.
Costa Rica is a good place for China to invest due to its geographical position, stability and economy, as well as its free trade agreement (FTA) with the United States, Wang said.
China and Costa Rica have started talks on a FTA, Wang added.
