The economist, Manuel Zúñiga, told Nacion.com that “… The lower growth in business investment may be a symptom of the problems of competitiveness that the country is experiencing. The delay in improvements to competitiveness (electricity costs and road infrastructure, among other things), has now started to cost the Costa Rican economy dearly. ”

“… This is making the business sector more cautious in expanding their local activities and even making them evaluate carrying on their activities in other countries. Hence the unemployment rate remains flat at 10%. I believe as well that there is an influence from the global economy which is staying with a (constant) inertial growth of around 3%. ”
