The Costa Rican-American Chamber of Commerce and the international financial consulting firm Deloitte will host a full-day summit on international business competition today at the Hotel Real Intercontinental in Escazú.
President Laura Chinchilla will give a speech to close the event late in the afternoon.
Before that, experts on international business will take part in three separate panels on issues that businesses in Costa Rica face.
This is the third time the chamber has hosted the “AmCham Competitiveness Summit.” This year the theme of the conference is “the Costa Rica we need by 2020.”
Three panels of experts will address three key topics to this end. These panels will feature political, government officials, managers of large international companies and other experts.
The first panel will be about setting a national model to develop Costa Rica’s competitiveness. The second panel will be about how to make necessary policy changes and define priorities.
The final panel will be specifically devoted to developing the law regarding electrical energy.
With a $250 fee to attend the conference, the event caters to businesses and not to the general public. Registration for the event closed Monday.
