“Costa Rica is the largest economy in Central America. Costa Rican companies are invited to invest in and benefit from the fastest growing large economy. Current bilateral trade volumes between both countries are to the tune of USD 200 million,” he said.

 

Terming Costa Rica as an “important partner” of India, Naidu said the two countries shared “close and cordial” ties based on their shared commitment to the pursuit of democracy, pluralism, multiculturalism, freedom of Press and equitable human rights.

Naidu also became the first from India on Friday to receive an honorary doctorate by the University of Peace founded by the United Nations.

M Venkaiah Naidu left Costa Rica on Friday (March 9, 2019).
