Azernews reports the foreign ministers of the two countries emphasized the wide range of opportunities for mutually beneficial cooperation in the economic-trade, tourism, energy, logistics, ports and maritime, investment and humanitarian spheres and noted the importance of promotion of direct contacts among business communities.

Costa Rica and Azerbaijan have had diplomatic relations for over two decades.

According to Azernews, the most important point for strengthening the relations between the two countries is Costa Rica’s decision of establishing an embassy in Baku, which must give an additional impetus to the strengthening of mutual cooperation and contribute to an increase in the tourist flow from Azerbaijan to the Latin America.
