The management of the Limón Roots magazine and local business leaders are hosting an investment conference Monday and Tuesday in Limón Centro.
The event is part of the Festival Afrocultural Limón Roots 2016. It will be in the Westfalia Beach Events Center. This is the third such conference.
The goal of the international event is to foster development in the Caribbean port city and surrounding area.
Limón is getting an economic boost by the construction of a $1 billion container handling terminal. Not only will the terminal provide jobs but the concession payments by the Dutch firm, APM Terminals, doing the construction will be used to enhance the living conditions in the province of Limón. The government has an elaborate plan.
