Costa Rica - even more business friendly
Costa Rica seeks to grow its economy through tourism and attracting business and foreign investment. They have introduced a number of business friendly initiatives making it even easier for companies to set up and do business in Costa Rica.
However Costa Rica is seeking to grow its economy not just through tourism but through high tech industry as well. Because of their very highly educated workforce (96% literacy and the country will spend 25% of the entire national budget on education in 2009), Costa Rica has already attracted huge multinational investment.
Earlier this year the Costa Rican government introduced an accelerated capital depreciation scheme on all new assets purchased in 2009. This scheme was introduced to encourage companies to continue to invest and makes it tax efficient for them to do so (even with the current global economic doldrums).
Costa Rica is using further initiatives to boost its international competitiveness and has recently introduced and online visa application process for skilled overseas workers. The online visa program aims to process overseas workers visas in a maximum of 10 days and the program has currently been rolled out on a trial basis to Intel, Erricson, t Menos and Surf Factory with an intention to have it open to all as soon as possible.
