The UIA is proud to present this seminar in Costa Rica, a democratic country full of tradition that abolished the army in 1949 and changed the weapons for social and economic development. Coffee and banana are the traditional products, which defined the economic activity in the XIX century and the end of XX. In the 1980s, the Costa Rican economy initiated a process of opening up to foreign direct investment and obtained great results in social security and education.

Thanks to the civilian vocation of the country, Peace was achieved in Central America and President Oscar Arias Sánchez won the Nobel Peace Prize. These conditions were conducive to develop foreign investment and make the country a center hub for companies interested in developing Latin American markets and tourism investment. In 1997, the US transnational Company Intel settled in Costa Rica and generated during the following years an influx of investment that today boosts its economy and constitutes an important center of foreign investment.

This 2017 year the UIA invites you to Costa Rica to obtain a unique experience on the development of the economic and legal reality of foreign investment in Latin America and what better place than in the country of the Pura Vida!


Seminar organised by the UIA in collaboration with the Costa Rica Bar Association and PROCOMER (Promotora del Comercio Exterior de Costa Rica)
