Canada’s Harper plans visit here Thursday

Stephen Harper, the Canadian prime minister will visit Costa Rica Thursday to push for trade and perhaps discuss the renegotiation of the free trade treaty between the two countries.

He is on a Latin tour that includes Brazil and Colombia. He will visit Honduras after meeting with President Laura Chinchilla and other Costa Rican officials.

More than 110,000 Canadian tourists visited Costa Rica in 2010, and the Canadian Embassy said some 10,000 Canadians are residents here.
