Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency and Ministry of Tourism combat the COVID-19 repercussions generated in the labor sector

To combat the repercussions generated in the labor sector due to the COVID-19 health emergency, the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE) has designed a virtual platform to bring together all current job offerings available at multinational companies.

Relocating Jobs Via Virtual Platform and Offering 950 Open Positions

The platform will facilitate the relocation of jobseekers from the tourism industry – and any other affected sector – who have unfortunately lost their jobs due to the pandemic.

This initiative is part of a joint agreement, since February 2019, between the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) and CINDE. The virtual platform offers job opportunities to anyone who has been affected, regardless of industry.

Open positions seek recruits in the areas of human resources, data analysis, software engineering and development, customer service, technical support, manufacturing, finance, and accounting, among others.

The platform will allow companies with open positions to announce new opportunities as well. More than 20 multinational companies have joined.

Joining efforts to reduce the social and economic impact of the pandemic

The Minister of Foreign Trade, Dyalá Jiménez, also commented: “In these challenging circumstances, the foreign trade sector – COMEX, PROCOMER, and CINDE – has collaborated with other government authorities and with representatives from the private sector. Through collaboration and coordination, we have worked to reduce the social and economic impact of this pandemic. I applaud the construction of CINDE’s virtual platform – a product of the creativity these circumstances demand and a sampling of the possibility we have, as a country, to continue stimulating the economy and supporting our various industries. Only together, will we move forward.”

CINDE is a private, non-profit, non-political organization declared of public interest in 1984, responsible for the attraction of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) into Costa Rica. Read more HERE
