Land for Sale in Costa Rica Free Trade Zone

The Foreign Trade Promotion Office has put on sale a plot of land measuring 64 thousand square meters in the town of Liverpool, Province of Limon, suitable for Free Zone development.

Tuesday, October 30, 2012

The sale value of the land is $1.4 million according to information supplied by Procomer.

The institution purchased the land when one of its responsibilities was to manage development in the zones, a situation which has changed since the law was amended.

"The mission is not to build Procomer zones, but rather to encourage, promote and administer the free zone regime. Pursuant to the Law on the Free Zones Law No. 7210 of November 23, 1990, the free zone parks should be developed by private companies", said Jorge Sequeira, general manager of the entity.

"He added that no land is not being used and in order to avoid incurring maintenance costs and for safety reasons, the decision was taken to sell them.
