Costa Rica

Yearbook 2000

Costa Rica. According to COUNTRYAAH, during the course of the year, Costa Rica has regulated its relations with neighboring countries with regard to border demarcations. In June, an agreement was reached with Nicaragua regarding shipping on the San Juan River, an issue that has hindered the countries' cooperation for two years. In October, Congress also ratified an agreement on the maritime border with Colombia, six years after its signing.

2000 Costa Rica

In the economic sphere, in March, after five years of negotiations, Congress approved an end to the state monopoly in electricity supply and telecommunications - a victory for the government, but unions and students protested.

However, a proposal by Governor Eduardo Lizano to follow Ecuador's example and "dollarize" the economy has been received coolly by the government.
