Costa Rica Contracts

Costa Rica's stable and progressive economy depends on tourism, agriculture, and electronics exports. An important producer of bananas, pineapples, and coffee, Costa Rica has benefited from industrialization in electronics and health care, and per capita income is high by regional standards. The prime industries of Costa-Rica's economy include electronics, pharmaceuticals, financial outsourcing, software development, and eco-tourism. Foreign investors remain attracted by the country's political stability and relatively high education levels, as well as the fiscal incentives offered in the free-trade zones. Bananas, pineapples, coffee, melons, sugar, beef and manufactured goods are exported. Raw materials, consumer goods, capital equipment, and petroleum are imported. The United States is the largest trading partner.
