October 3, 2017

Officials from Costa Rica and the United Arab Emirates signed tax and reciprocal investment agreements in San José Monday following bilateral meetings at the Casa Amarilla, or Foreign Ministry, in Barrio Amón. Foreign Minister Manuel González said the meetings built on exchanges in recent months, including President Luis Guillermo Solís’ visit to the UAE in January, as well as the visit to Costa Rica of Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan in 2016. González said in a statement from the Foreign Ministry that he hopes for “increased levels of trade and investment for a deeper understanding between our countries and our societies.”
