According to the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency, last year Costa Rica drew 43 new high-tech projects, which created 7,000 jobs and attracted $583 million in foreign direct investment.

Foreign Trade Minister Anabel González  said last year that “the services sector is showing a significant evolution, increasingly offering services of greater sophistication and complexity, largely thanks to the preparation and qualification of Costa Rican human resources.”
