About AmCham Costa Rica

The Costa Rican-American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham Costa Rica) was founded fourty one years ago by a group of Costa Rican and US business executives with a vision towards promoting and nurturing the bilateral commercial relationship between the United States and Costa Rica and on the principle that a strong private sector is essential to the country’s economic well being, and that a strong economy will strengthen its democratic principles.

Today’s AmCham organization consists of 400 companies and 1300 corporate representatives divided almost 50/50 between Costa Rican and US interests. This membership represents a widely diverse section of economic activity — agriculture, livestock, aquaculture, importers/ distributors, tourism, manufacturing, business services, construction and non-profit organizations. The Chamber’s membership represents 80% of Costa Rica’s foreign direct investment and 80% of the country’s exports.


AmCham Costa Rica is a visible and respected player on the national business scene and is recognized as an energetic advocate on behalf of its bi-national membership. AmCham’s capabilities are strengthened by an impressive brain trust from within its nine active working committees. The Chamber’s expertise and views on investment, trade, legal, environmental and human resource issues in Costa Rica are sought after, listened to and respected.


In Washington DC AmCham Costa Rica is widely recognized for its advocacy efforts on behalf of its constituency where for the last 40 years Chamber leaders have devoted considerable time to bilateral issues affecting trade, business and investment between the two countries and in promoting legislation such as the Caribbean Basin Initiative and its expansion and the Central American Free Trade Agreement with the United States and the Dominican Republic (DR-CAFTA). Trade facilitation, enforcement of intellectual property rights and rule of law issues continue to be the focus of the Chamber’s attention.

AmCham works to promote the role of the private sector and the contribution of its bi-national membership in the economic and social development of the country.
