Executive summary

Costa Rica has managed to attract significant inflows of foreign direct investment (FDI) which have been a major contributor to its economic development. While foreign investments were at first mainly geared towards simple manufacturing operations, they have become increasingly diversified and knowledge-intensive and have helped to transform the economy. Annual FDI inflows have increased at an impressive pace, growing on average 13% per year over the past ten years.
