The country will be the site for a major conference on outsourcing next year. The Ministerio de Comercio Exterior, the Promotora de Comercio Exterior and the Coalición Costarricense de Iniciativas de Desarrollo announced this Thursday.
The decision was made at this year’s conference in Guadalajara, México.
Some 500 representatives of businesses involved in this sector, as well as government officials are expected to come to Costa Rica, said the announcement.
The service sector in Costa Rica contains about 120 firms that employ about 50,000 persons.
The event is sponsored by the Interamerican Development Bank.
