During a visit to the new premises of the company located in Heredia, in the free zone Ultrapark II, Costa Rica’s Vice President, Ana Helena Chacon, said that “the growth of National Instruments in Costa Rica generates about 170 new high quality jobs, which is in line with the Government’s objectives for opening competitive workplaces for Costa Ricans thanks to the contribution that multinational companies make through FDI. We thank NI for trusting Costa Rica and expanding their operations,” she said.

The Director General of Costa Rica’s investment promotion agency (CINDE), Jorge Sequeira, said “exports of value-added services increased from 12.1% in 1999 to 49% in 2013. This, due to the advance that services companies have had in the country which now execute more sophisticated processes.
