Canada’s Prime Minister Harper visiting Costa Rica on Thursday

August 7, 2011

Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper will visit Costa Rica next Thursday as part of a four-country tour of Latin America. 

Harper will meet with President Laura Chinchilla to discuss several issues including security and human rights. Harper will meet with the leaders of all four countries he visits, according to a press release from Canada’s government. He will also meet with members of the private sector.

The Latin America trip begins Monday in Brazil. On Wednesday, the prime minister goes to Colombia before visiting Costa Rica the following day. The final stop is in Honduras on Friday.

“Our government has focused on expanding and enhancing market access to create jobs, economic growth and opportunities for Canadians. The Americas remain a key region of increasing economic prosperity and entrepreneurialism,” said Harper in the press release. “Over the next few days, we will continue to further strengthen our economic ties, collaborate on shared areas of security and highlight our many successes to date in this important region.”

Costa Rica is Canada’s largest trade partner in Central America.
