The central government is highlighting its 2015 achievements by noting that the country placed seventh in the world in the ease of obtaining credit.
That was one of the factors considered by the World Bank in its Doing Business index.
This is the time of year when governmental institutions cherry pick and put their best accomplishments forward.
The government release also pointed out that Costa Rica is among the10 economies that improved their index score the most. Costa Rica went from 79 to 51 in the ranking of 189 economies.
The highest ranking categories besides credit were the ease of obtaining electrical service and the ease of paying taxes.
The government did not mention that the index puts Costa Rica in 181st place among the 189 nations in relation to protection of investors. Lawmakers noticed this, and there is a bill in the legislature to give minority investors more power.
