    Costa Rica’s government welcomes Xi Jinping on his appointment as the new president of China and expressed confidence that bilateral relations will be strengthened.

    “Costa Rica welcomes that the appointment of Mr. Xi as the highest authority of the government, will open new prospects for the strengthening and development of bilateral relations,” said the Costa Rican foreign ministry.

    The Costa Rica Government met with Xi Jinping as vice president last August, during President Laura Chinchilla visit to Beijing.

    “At that time, Costa Rica and China reaffirmed the strong bilateral ties and agreed that this moment marked the beginning of a new stage in relations,” the Foreign Ministry statement.

    Costa Rica and China established diplomatic relations in June 2007 and since then have established numerous cooperative agreements, foreign trade, economic and political.

    Among the most prominent is the National Stadium in San Jose, which the Chinese built with a donation of 83 million, signing a free trade agreement and the future building of the Costa Rican Caribbean joint oil refinery worth about 1billion dollars.

    Costa Rica is the only Central American country that has diplomatic relations with China, and the rest has ties with Taiwan.
