According to the President, on Monday began an intense week of work in meetings with businessmen and investors in London as well as strengthen the strategic positioning of Costa Rica as a “hub” for commercial and logistical Americas.

On the list of meeting with government officials is British Trade Minister Lord Price. Meetings with executives from British companies with interests in Costa Rica, include Prima Fruit.

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.
