Amazon helps Costa Rica to carve out niche in world economy

Monday, March 13, 2017


Amazon’s investment in Costa Rica and the infusion of money from other multinational companies have helped make the nation an important provider of a broad suite of corporate services for global firms.

Since 2008, Amazon has morphed into a major employer here with more than 4,000 workers. It’s a relationship that’s worked well for Costa Rica — a formerly agrarian country that has leveraged a skilled population to carve itself a profitable niche in the world economy. It also helps corporate behemoths tap into a global vein of talent, often at a cost that’s half the amount it is in the U.S.
