Costa Rica Seeks Investment in Manufacturing and Agribusiness

The country will promote foreign investment in these sectors, especially in areas with less development further away from the Greater Metropolitan Area.

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

The Costa Rican Coalition for Development Initiatives (Cinde) will focus on promoting investment in these sectors, diversifying its strategy of attracting investment and giving greater emphasis to the development of areas further away from the capital, where there is a stronger link with the productive sectors and agribusiness.

The president of the Costa Rican Union of Chamber and Associations of Private Enterprises (Uccaep) Rónald Jimenez told that "... 'We believe that the success of Cinde in attracting FDI and generating quality employment for Costa Ricans can be extended to other types or size of investor, especially if it creates jobs in less developed areas.' "

The president of the National Chamber of Agriculture and Agribusiness (CNAA), Juan Rafael Lizano, "... supported the government initiative and ... said that in agribusiness, it must be clarified whether to industrialize the existing product or plant a new one for the firm to be installed here. "
