Six out of 10 private employers in Costa Rica said they disapproved of President Luis Guillermo Solís at the end of his first year in office, according to a recent poll. Still, the survey results suggest moderate optimism among the business community about the country's near-term economic future.
Leaders of Costa Rica’s food industry on Tuesday reported that their production has increased by only 1.79 percent this year, a low figure that has prevented the sector from growing or creating new jobs. It also increases uncertainty for next year, they said.
The optimism that followed the inauguration of President Luis Guillermo Solís last May has since dissipated among the country’s business sector, according to the latest study by consulting firm Deloitte, released Monday.
