The government convened a forum Monday to discuss a policy for industry. The goal of the forum was to define the steps to create such a policy.
The Ministerio de Economía, Industria y Comercio is taking the lead, and other ministries are expected to participate. The ministry also is seeking support from the chambers of commerce, banks and similar institutions.
Luis Guillermo Solís was quoted as saying such a policy is needed to reinforce the importance of industry.
The session was supported by the Proyecto Procalidad of the European Union.
