China and Costa Rica

In my first trip to Central America five years ago, I was struck by how dominated the Panamanian convenience shop scene was by those with Chinese owners.  I haven't been back to Panama, but I assume the same is still true there.  For whatever reason it seems the Chinese have been slower to take root here in Costa Rica.  But maybe that's about to change: it looks like China and Costa Rica are on track to increase their trade and investment interdependence.  The Honda 125 I ride was made in Guanzhou, China, but I bought it new from a tico-owned hardware store.   Maybe in five years the best prices on Chinese Hondas will be at Chinese dealerships.  We'll see.

Here are a few words rom CR, UK, and China.  Interesting how China now seems to be taking up to post its own news.
