The president of the German Federal Republic will lead a delegation to Costa Rica May 3 and 4.
The president, Christian Wulff, will be accompanied by his wife, Bettina. Members of the Bundestag, commercial representatives, scientists, cultural personalities and press will complete the delegation.
The last time a German president visited Costa Rica was in 1977, said the German Embassy in a release. That was when Walter Scheel visited then-president Daniel Oduber Quirós.
Wulff, 51, won election June 30, 2010, to a five-year term. He has the right to seek re-election for one term more, said the embassy. Election is by the federal assembly of 1,244 persons.
