Costa Rican envoy makes energy and tourism pitch in Japan. Clean resources generate 95 percent of electricity, he emphasizes

Thursday, September 22, 2011

The new Costa Rican ambassador to Japan, Alvaro Antonio Cedeno Molinari, said his mission in Tokyo is to raise awareness of investment opportunities in renewable energy.

He also wants to attract more Japanese tourists to Costa Rica — a country with a rich variety of bird species, rain forests and kayaking spots that make it a prime ecotourism destination.

Cedeno Molinari emphasized that Costa Rica "generates 95 percent of its electricity from renewable, clean and safe resources." He also said only a small number of Japanese tourists visit Costa Rica. He also said he would push for a free-trade pact with Japan.
