The meeting involved about 1,000 people, of which about 200 are Chinese business representatives.
The summit was opened by President Laura Chinchilla, who answered the questions that are given regarding investments in the country and agreed with Chinese companies on issues such as the extension of Route 32.
Chinchilla acknowledged that such questions affect attracting investments to Costa Rica. “The impact will be not only to China but also to the promotion of the country with other nations,” she added.
The Summit will run until Wednesday, November 27th, with business meetings and conferences for entrepreneurs.
