QCOSTARICA – A visit by United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan to Costa Rica paved the way for closer trade ties between the two countries, especially in the areas of tourism and sustainable energy.

During the first official visit ever to Costa Rica by a UAE foreign minister, Al Nahyan and his Costa Rican counterpart and host, Manuel González, signed two agreements, one of them refers to air services, air transport, which would focus primarily on facilitating the transfer of  cargo by Costa Rican exporters to countries in the Middle East.

They also agreed to immediately begin the process of negotiating and promoting investment in tourism, to boost visits by Emirati tourists to Costa Rica.

“I think you have a wonderful, beautiful country,” theUAE foreign minister said in a press conference at the end of his meeting with president Luis Guillermo Soli. “Of course, there is the problem of the distance between us, but I believe that after opening the air route between Dubai and Panama City, it will be easier to get back and forth between our countries.”

Al Nahyan also announced that mechanisms would be sought to facilitate visas between the two countries, in order to expedite trade.
