Quotes

...of Costa Rica, Intel's decision to transfer its assembly and test operations to a region closer to its main geographical markets is unfortunate. "Intel helped Costa Rica position its name in the world of foreign direct investment and high technology. Today, more than 15 years later, Costa Rica is a leader in different industries, and has become a highly competitive location for high-tech manufacturing, services and, more recently, research and development activities."
Juan Ramón Rivera, president of the Costa Rican Chamber of Industries, agreed that their country has a lot to offer tech companies. "We believe our country continues to offer interesting conditions for the development of the industrial sector. We deeply regret the decision they [Intel] were forced to make."
"Lorena Quirós, spokeswoman for the Association for the Protection of Tourism (Protur), said that for many years, we have been offered a mega convention center to meet the demand for this type of tourism and it has never materialised."
José Rossi, president of the CINDE board of directors, observed that Costa Rica's high-tech manufacturing sector had helped develop a service sector "that has been one of the motors of the national economy and continues to demonstrate an important dynamism with 140 companies."
