During the visit of the President of Spain, Pedro Sánchez, last week, agreements were signed between Spain and Costa Rica on politics, health, cybersecurity, tourism, infrastructure, transport and cooperation matters, according to the Ministry of Presidency.
Regarding political issues, it was agreed to continue with the Political Consultation System which seeks the development cooperation between both countries in the political, economic, social and cultural areas, among others.
Both countries agree to promote cooperation in science, technology, innovation and a coordinated approach to fight against cyber threats.
They also agree to improve Costa Rican public transportation for the next eight years.
And they made an agreement with the goal to increase the number of travelers between both countries.
Spanish companies with representation in Costa Rica agree on alliances with public organizations to improve the procedures to make the country more attractive for Spanish private companies to open their branches in the country.
Shortly before leaving the country on Friday, President Sánchez received the Key of the City of San José, as well as the declaration of Guest of Honor of the capital.
Sánchez arrived in the country last Wednesday night to participate in the summit of the Central American Integration System together with the presidents and members of the governments of Central American countries that took place at the Real Intercontinental Hotel in Escazu Canton, San José Province.
The Central American Integration System, SICA, is the economic and political organization of Central American states created in 1993, with the goal of extending cooperation for regional peace, political freedom, democracy and economic development. The eight-country members of the organization are Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica and Panama, Belize, Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
This was the second visit of Sánchez to Costa Rica. His last visit was in August 2018, where he addressed issues like the environment, climate change, descarbonization plan and the political situation in Nicaragua.
The last Spanish prime minister to visit Costa Rica was José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero in 2004.
