The central government came out with a 256-page national development plan to cover the years of the Chinchilla administration.
The plan says it is a fundamental instrument to make decisions, assign resources and manage government, according to the preface.
In a speech presenting the plan, President Laura Chinchilla said that the country must respect its natural resources. She also said that citizen security would be enhanced by more police.
The plan basically repeats what Ms. Chinchilla said in her election campaign. There is an emphasis on the poor.
The plan is the work of the Ministerio de Planificatión Nacional y Politica Económia.
