Costa Rica is a good fit for WTO, says González

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Costa Rica is well-suited to lead the World Trade Organization because it’s a small nation that opted for integration into the global economy to boost domestic growth, said Trade Minister Anabel González, the Latin American country’s candidate for WTO director-general.

“My country has gone through a very strong structural- transformation process,” González said.

“The story of Costa Rica shows that trade is a very powerful instrument for growth and development, that the multilateral system has a strong role to play in leveling the playing field for all countries. I would bring in a strong sense of neutrality.”
