U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo will meet President Rodrigo Chaves-Robles on Mach to address both countries' bilateral commercial,  investment and semiconductor supply chains industry.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Secretary's trip goal is to focus on the need for geographical diversification of the semiconductor ecosystem to like-minded nations.

Raimondo will also meet Costa Rican government officials and representatives from the semiconductor industry.
"Secretary Raimondo will emphasize the strong commercial partnership between the United States and Costa Rica through bilateral engagements with government officials and both U.S. and Costa Rican business leaders," said the U.S. Department of Commerce in its statement.

Gina M. Raimondo serves as the 40th U.S. Secretary of Commerce and was sworn in by Vice President Kamala Harris on March 3, 2021. 

Secretary Raimondo was formerly the 75th Governor of Rhode Island and its first woman governor in January 2015 and won a second term in 2018. She also served as chair of the Democratic Governorsí Association in 2019.

Secretary Raimondo is one of many prominent U.S. government executives who have lately visited Costa Rica. Last month, Ramin Toloui, the United States Assistant Secretary for Economic and Business Affairs, paid a visit to Costa Rica to meet with President Chaves and launch the Americas Partnership for Economic Prosperity Semiconductor Workforce Symposium.
