Costa Rican government fails to use $1.6 billion in funds that were destined for public works. Bad planning and red tape

Monday, November 7, 2011

During 2010 alone, the amount was some $1.6 billion, double what the current proposal for fiscal reform is meant to save.

Bad planning and red tape are the main causes of the misuse of public funds.
