Analysts predict fiscal reform approval in Costa Rica. Legislative Assembly seen as passing plan in December

Friday, October 28, 2011

While divided factions continue to lobby for and against a new fiscal reform plan for Costa Rica, presented Sept. 27 in the Legislative Assembly, analysts are beginning to offer projections on whether or not the package will be passed.

On Monday, Heather Berkman and Adam Siegel, Latin American analysts from the international consulting firm the Eurasia Group, projected that the fiscal reform will be approved in the Legislative Assembly in December.

“Tax reform plan will get approved despite resistance,” the report stated. “A fiscal reform package negotiated between the Laura Chinchilla administration and the opposition Citizen Action Party remains on track to be approved by mid-December despite growing opposition to the deal.”
