December 8, 2016.  The Chamber of Industries of Costa Rica pointed to job creation as the main objective which all Government actions in 2017 should focus on. The ICRC submitted a list of 19 achievements in the sector and 20 government debts in different issues relating to competitiveness during its annual presentation of the report “Balance 2016 and Outlook 2017 for the industrial sector.”

“Although in 2016 the sector grew in production and exports, the growth was concentrated in the free zone regime, meaning that employment grew very little,” said Enrique Egloff, President of the ICRC.
