The safest country
According to the Index of Latin American Security, by FTI Consulting Ibero-America for Latin Business Chronicle, based in Miami, Florida, Costa Rica is the safest place for multi-national business and firms. Even though Chile and Uruguay show at the same level as Costa Rica, Chronicle chief editor Joachim Bamrud said that the Central American nation tops the list. Last year, Chile was first, which shows Costa Rica has improved. The Vice-President of Costa Rica Laura Chinchilla pointed out that this is a very positive signal for anyone planning to invest here. She added that efforts to continue improving will not slacken at any time.
