Security Strengthened at Ports in Limon and Moin

Protection of facilities and port operations is essential in order to maintain their status as a safe port, a status that had been at risk for the Caribbean ports of Costa Rica.

Monday, November 16, 2015

An article on Crhoy reports that "... The Costa Rican Union of Chambers and Associations of Private Business Sector (Uccaep) and the Costa Rican Chamber of Importers applauded the security measures taken so that the country can maintain the status of 'safe' ports. "

The government announced that "... in order to meet requirements set by international security agencies for ports, from Sunday Border Police officers have been allocated who are responsible for these areas."

The president of the Chamber of Importers, José Manuel Quirce said that "... the Port of Caldera has optimal security conditions, this is not the case for Limon and if there is a single port that does not meet those standards, the country and its commercial dynamics are hurt, therefore we are pleased with this measure.
