Oldemar Magrigal, director of Vigilancia Aerea, said that airport operations will not be suspended during the arrival and departure of Jinping, in the way during the Barack Obama visit.

Monday all government employees will have the day off work. The private sector may also be affected by the public holiday, which the government justifies as one of “public interest”.

Jinping will end his Costa Rica visit on Tuesday June 4.

Costa Rica is the only Central American country with official diplomatic ties to China, established in 2007 following the termination of a decades-long diplomatic relationship with Taiwan.

Costa Rica has received significant donations from China, including a US$80 million national stadium in San José, automobiles and other equipment for the Ministerio Publico (police) and National Police Academy, and a Chinese arch for the  Chinatown.

Xi Jinping also will visit Mexico and Venezuela during the trip.
