Costa Rican companies expect big boost in output

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

A study released Monday by the Costa Rican Chamber of Industries of 200 local firms found that 65.7 percent expect to increase production in 2013, while only 6.3 percent expect to produce less.

Despite the optimistic outlooks, the study shows a decrease in job creation compared to the previous year.

The results indicate that 60.7 percent expect to maintain their payroll as is, while 28.3 percent plan to increase it and 6.3 percent are considering layoffs.
