Casa Presidencial is stressing that the president’s Cuba trip this weekend is not a junket. Instead it is an effort to develop commercial ties, according to information put out by the Presidencia Wednesday.
Costa Rica exported $38 million to Cuba in 2014, according to Promotora del Comercio Exterior de Costa Rica.
President Luis Guillermo Solís was criticized Tuesday as engaging in political tourism. The agenda released Wednesday shows a number of commerce-related meetings.
