The Panama Canal expansion works alone created 7,000 new jobs.
42,000 is the number of estimated positions for professionals and technicians that will become available with the start of major projects such as the construction of the gas terminal in Colon, the fourth bridge over the Canal and the second Metro line.
The government of Costa Rica will pay $2,700 per person to enterprises hiring in vulnerable sectors and whose staff remain in their posts for at least 12 months.
The recovery which started in September 2009 has come to an end in March 2010 and since then, more than 3,000 jobs have been lost.
A study by the Labor Ministry concluded that the economy will generate 21,000 new jobs in the next four years.
