Costa Rica is expected to import approximately 140,000 MT of rough rice
Costa Rica is expected to import about 140,000 MT of rough rice during the July 2004/June 2005 marketing year. Two shipments totaling 60,197 tons arrived at the end of November from the U.S. Additional imports are expected to be made next year starting in February or March, depending on stock levels at the end of December. Other suppliers (Argentina and Uruguay) are expected to participate in the bidding process next year.

Costa Rica annually sets a shortage “quota” to meet domestic demand for rice. Under normal circumstances, imports under this quota enter the country at zero duty and the Rice Corporation (CONARROZ) is the sole entity permitted to bring the commodity into the country within the quota. This quota has been initially set at 98,559 MT, but will likely get extended to include another 41,500 MT next year. The 60,197 MT were imported by two different private sector groups of millers, one of which included a retailer. The quantity was deducted from the quota for volume purposes, but in this case since the rice was imported by the private sector and not by the Rice Corporation, it was assessed a 35% duty and a price safeguard duty that varies according to the export price of the rice. The remaining import volume will be imported by the Rice Corporation at zero duty and will fall under the shortage volume or quota determined by the government.
