The Government guarantees the continuity of fuel supply, port services and traffic in international air terminals.

On the orders of President Carlos Alvarado, the Ministerio de Seguridad Pública took the control of the Limón and Moín ports of JAPDEVA, the RECOPE plants and the international airports Juan Santamaria in Alajuela (San Jose) and Daniel Oduber in Liberia (Guanacaste) on Sunday night.

The Fuerza Publica (National POlice), Vigilancia Aérea  (Air Surveillance) and Servicio de Guardacostas (Coast Guard Service), coordinated with the administration of both the Refinería Costarricense de Petróleo (RECOPE) and the Junta de Administración Portuaria y de Desarrollo Económico de la Vertiente Atlántica (JAPDEVA) and the manager of the country’s main international airports to guarantee the continuity of services.

“With these actions we are guaranteeing the Costa Rican citizenship the continuity of fuel supply, port services and traffic in international air terminals, before the announcement of a national strike,” the president said.

On national television Sunday night, the president said his government has taken measures to maintain public order and essential services and minimize the impact of the strike.

The Government guarantees that it has the personnel required to handle operations in ports, airports and in the supply of fuel.
