Costa Rica wants to attract more Chinese tourists and investors and so it is planning to open consulates in Shanghai and Hong Kong, the Central American nation’s envoy to Beijing said Tuesday.

turista-chinoThe opening of the two consulates, which will augment Costa Rica’s only existing diplomatic mission in China, is a “project for 2014” that still must be approved by the foreign ministry, said Ambassador Marco Vinicio Ruiz.

The aim is to facilitate the coming of both Chinese investors and tourists to Costa Rica, the only Central American country with which Beijing has diplomatic relations.

The initiative, according to Ruiz, is in keeping with the plans that the embassy is developing along with the Costa Rican Tourism Institute to attract “50,000 visitors from China in five years, and to the growing interest of (Chinese) businessmen and investors” in the Central American nation.

The ambassador said that the costs to Costa Rica of the new legations in Shanghai and Hong Kong will be minimal.

“The details will be announced when the foreign ministry approves it. Many countries in Latin America – like Mexico, Peru and Colombia – have consulates in those cities,” he said.
