Whether it be a new international airport or burgeoning shopping malls, there are many potential investment opportunities in Limón. Each investor has a chance to find his or her next big project at the first ever international investors conference and expo Limón, which will be held Friday and Saturday in Playa Bonita.
Through the theme “Caribbean of Costa Rica, Limón: your grand investment,” there will be numerous talks and presentations about local supply chains in the port city, development and corporate banking, and potential investments in Limón tourism operations, among other topics. A section of the conference will also focus on Limon’s history and it’s contemporary place in Costa Rican economics.
President Luis Guillermo Solís is slated to attend the conference on its inaugural day to give a lecture at 2 p.m. that will focus on the government’s vision for Limón and the Caribbean as a whole. This will mark the first time that the president will have a chance to talk directly to investors after his much-anticipated 100-day report Thursday. Other government guest speakers include the minister of Turismo, Wilhelm von Breymann, and Alexander Mora, minister of foreign trade.
The activity is being organized by local government, small business owners in Limón and the area magazine Limón Roots. On Friday the event will be held at the Sala de Eventos Junito’s Hall at 7 a.m. but will move to the Edificio de Correos for Saturday.
Some other opportunities for investment that will be discussed are: International distribution, modern cruise terminal, free trade zones and customs procedures, office centers, convention centers, boutique resorts, and private medical centers.
