Expomovil Is Back On, Starts Today Friday


The organizers of Expomovil never gave up and tomorrow will, again, inaugurate the annual car show. This time with permits in hand.

The Executive Director of the Asociación de Importadores de Vehículos y Maquinaria (AIVEMA), Liliana Aguilar, said the fair will take place at the Pedregal Events Centre – the original location – for only five days, until March 20.

The Municipalidad de Belén said through a press release that based on the decision by the Tribunal Ambiental Administrativo (Environmental Administrative Tribunal), imposing on Pedregal a recovery plan and mitigation of damages of about ¢68 million colones, the municipality removed the estoppel.

The Court ruled that the construction work on the access bridge to the events centre caused environmental damage that the company must correct.

President Laura Chinchilla welcomed the re-opening. By way of Twitter, the presidenta said, “we celebrate the reopening of Expomovil after countless efforts. An example of the absurd ‘tramitomanía’ (endless processes) which we are fighting”.

On February 22, the municipality closed the Expomovil the day after opening for lack of a permit. Car dealers moved the car fair to their dealerships, offering customers the same fair prices and incentives.
