Costa Rica’s new President, Luis Guillermo Solis, has called for the strengthening of bilateral and economic relations between Zambia and Costa Rica. Solís said there is need for Costa Rica and Zambia to explore ways of sharing best practices in areas of common interest such as agriculture, environmental protection and tourism.

The President made the statement in San José Wednesday when he received letters of credence from Zambia’s Ambassador to Costa Rica Palan Mulonda.

Mulonda said President Michael Sata’s administration is keen on working with Costa Rica on how best the two Governments can share best practices in areas of common interest aimed at improving the living standards of the people. Mulonda, who will represent Zambia in Costa Rica on a non-residential basis, said it is President Sata´s desire to engage in bilateral and economic co-operation with Costa Rica to help enhance development between the two countries.

“I further wish to express Zambia’s desire to strengthen our co-operation in the agricultural sector considering the fact that Costa Rica, like Zambia, produces  coffee, bananas, and sugar and that both our countries export sugar in large volumes,” Mulonda said.

He said President Sata has prioritised agriculture as one of the four key sectors on Zambia’s development agenda.

“Zambia would further like to explore ways of sharing best practices in cattle ranching considering that cattle and meat products are major exports of Costa Rica,”  Mulonda said.
