Costa Rica: A New Investment Opportunity
In the past year, Costa Rica has faced cases of departures of long-standing international investors. Although the country continues to draw sophisticated investors from around the world, external and internal challenges persist when it comes to attracting greater levels of foreign direct investment. Since taking office, however, President Luis Guillermo Solís has sought to revamp Costa Rica’s efforts to boost both the volume and nature of FDI.
Amercias Society/Council of the Americas, in partnership with Costa Rica’s Ministry of Foreign Trade (COMEX) and the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE), will hold a half-day conference to focus on the country’s economic and investment outlook, convening government officials and foreign investors who span various industries.
