WACC President Series with Luis Guillermo Solís, President of Costa Rica

Costa Rica and the United States have maintained diplomatic relations since Costa Rica's independence from Spain in 1851. The two nations are economic partners through the U.S.-Central America-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement, a partnership that accounts for around half of Costa Rica's imports, exports, tourism, and foreign direct investment. Both countries also cooperate in many international forums such as the United Nations, International Monetary Fund, World Bank, Organization of American States and World Trade Organization. Dense jungles, volcanic landscapes, pristine beaches and extensive biodiversity shape the character of Costa Rica. The nation's rich environment inspires the traditional mantra of 'pura vida' (pure life).
