President Luis Guillermo Solís visited the Costa Rican community in Bound Brook, New Jersey Sunday in the first official function during his week-long U.S. visit.
There is an unusual percentage of Costa Ricans living in the New Jersey community.
Solis is there to seek investment and participate in United Nation’s activities including making a speech at a climate change summit.
Solís also will be honored by the Duquesne University law school in Pittsburgh Saturday when he will receive an honorary degree. The Universidad de Costa Rica and Duquesne maintain a program exchanging professors and students.
Today Solís will meet with multinational investors in an effort to attract capital to Costa Rica. He will be accompanied by Alexander Mora Delgado, the minister of Comercio Exterior.
