Simplification of procedures will favor the economy and the attraction of foreign investment in Costa Rica

The Costa Rican – North American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) recently celebrated and reported on the signing of the decree that eliminates 163 “bottlenecks”, as they are popularly known, which hinder some procedures carried out by users and companies in public institutions.

This Chamber, together with the Executive Branch, participated weeks ago in the initiative “Le Dejamos Trabajar” (We Let You Work), in which business chambers and representatives of various sectors pointed out the main barriers that micro, small, medium, and large companies face to develop their businesses in the country.

“Excessive procedures affect the operations of companies and entrepreneurs in our country, increase the cost of doing business and discourage the creation of new sources of employment. These factors also promote greater informality. The country needs to continue advancing in the elimination of bureaucratic and cumbersome processes, with the benefit of our citizens and the Costa Rican economy as our main goal,” said Silvia Castro, president of AmCham.

The Chamber, together with other organizations and companies, are at the Government’s disposal and call to identify those problems that really affect the operational processes and that in turn prevent greater real investment for the country, in order to streamline and facilitate these processes to achieve greater growth and economic development.
