Dominica and Costa rica explores areas of deeper cooperation
Sean Douglas

The Commonwealth of Dominica is seeking to broaden its bilateral relations with the Republic of Costa Rica by exploring cooperation in the areas of Tourism, Sustainable Agriculture, Renewable Energy, Housing and Agro-Processing.

This information was revealed by Dominica’s first Non-Resident Ambassador to the Republic of Costa Rica, Dr. Damien Dublin on his return from Costa Rica where he presented his letter of credence to the President of Costa Rica, Mr. Oscar Arias Sanchez and the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr. Bruno Stagno Urgarte on May 29, 2007.

According to Dr. Dublin, a Cuban-trained dentist and Chairman of the National Development Foundation of Dominica, “these areas are to be further discussed and specific areas of assistance and collaboration requested”.

While in Costa Rica, Dr. Dublin held discussions with the President of Costa Rica, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, and the Manager of ICT- Costa Rica Tourist Board. The appointment of Dr. Damien Dublin as Dominica’s Non-Resident Ambassador to Costa Rica is intended to strengthen the existing bilateral relations for the mutual benefit of both countries.

The Commonwealth of Dominica established diplomatic relations with the Republic of Costa Rica in 2001. A high-ranking delegation of public and private sector representatives in the tourism sector conducted a study tour of Costa Rica in 2005.

The Republic of Costa Rica is one of Central America’s most affluent countries with a population of 4.1 million. It boasts a diversified economy reliant on tourism, agriculture and industry.

Since the January 31st 2000 General Elections, the Government of Dominica has expanded significantly the number of countries Dominica has diplomatic relations with. In the last year, Prime Minister Hon. Roosevelt Skerrit has announced the appointments of Non-Resident Ambassadors to Chile, Costa Rica, Japan and Libya.
