Costa Rica has a relatively more open business environment than that of some of its neighbors, and is welcoming of foreign direct investment (FDI). Costa Rica continues to impress market observers by taking significant steps towards supporting a highly capable services sector, and most recently, spearheading renewable energy development and outputs in the region.

Unlike other jurisdictions, there is little difference between corporate compliance requirements for national and foreign companies, making it an attractive, viable investment destination in Central America.
