This Survey is published on the responsibility of the Economic and Development Review Committee of the OECD, which is charged with the examination of the economic situation of member countries.

The economic situation and policies of Costa Rica were reviewed by the Committee on 6 October 2022. The draft report was then revised in light of the discussions and given final approval as the agreed report of the whole Committee on 28 October 2022.

The Secretariat’s draft report was prepared for the Committee by Alberto González Pandiella and Alessandro Maravalle, under the supervision of Aida Caldera Sánchez. Research assistance was provided by Véronique Gindrey, editorial support by Karimatou Diallo and communication assistance by Nathalie Bienvenu. The Survey also benefited from contributions by Bernardo Mayorga.

The previous Survey of Costa Rica was issued in 2020.
