As part of the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) program, Costa Rican and PRC customs authorities met online in April 2022 to continue negotiations for the signing of a Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) between the customs of both countries.

This meeting is the result of a process of rapprochement between both customs authorities that began in January 2020 with the signing of an action plan. During this period, both countries’ offices, in charge of the issue, have conducted studies on the compatibility of the Authorized Economic Operator program, reviewing the regulations and verifying the international standards defined by this program.
