In an interview with EFE, among his wishes for his administration to strengthen bilateral trade with Britain, Solis touched on the subject of Britain’s plans to leave the European Union, saying, “it could have negative consequences.” Solis added that he ‘preferred’ that Britain remain in trade bloc.

“The opening of direct flights to Spain, France, London and connections, among others, is a very prominent point for entrepreneurs and investors to explore Costa Rica as a power market,” said Solis in a Facebook post.

Costa Rica has in the past year opened the skies to a number of new airlines with direct flights between Europe and Costa Rica.
