Today, technology does not only work as a communication tool of its own to shorten distances. Nowadays, this science has merged an endless number of elements that promise to make our life and our environment an easier world.

Technology does not only work as a communication tool or to shorten distances. Today, science has merged an endless number of elements that promise to make our life and our environment an easier world.

Our country, the same one that has a population of fewer than five million inhabitants, an element that has not prevented Costa Rica from being at the forefront of innovation and being the perfect rebound in Latin America.

In the past our land was known for being excellent exporters of coffee and bananas, the Ticos have achieved a powerful evolution towards the manufacture of microchips in the decade of the 90s. With the passage of time, the boom was reflected in technological evolution. Where the success of our population was used 100% a very educated and also bilingual.

Costa Rica has a population of fewer than five million inhabitants. This has not been an obstacle for it at the forefront of innovation and a reference in Latin America. According to the Global Innovation Index 2019, Costa Rica is the most innovative country in Latin America, after Chile.

This aspect is just one of the many reasons that have allowed our country to consolidate itself within a very different and prosperous path with respect to many neighbors of this continent.

Due to the country’s political and social stability, as well as its strategic location, such as Microsoft, Intel, Hewlett Packard, Google, and Amazon are headquartered in Costa Rica.

The geographical location of our land has been a truly satisfactory point in each edge that evolves hand in hand with technological development.

These advantages combine with successful commercial policies that began three decades ago. Costa Rica is a magnet for large technological multinationals that see in this land how their dream can bear fruit and move forward.

Not everything is rosy, in the midst of evolution and technological transformation, there are also great challenges, however, the country frames its course in the plan to bring more foreign direct investment.

Another aspect that is directly intertwined with this singular invention is the fact that the first Central American satellite was put into space in 2018. The craft was developed by Costa Rican scientists.

In addition to creating hydrogen technologies to reduce transport pollution, one of Chang’s flagship projects is an ambitious invention to take a rocket to Mars in 39 days, using a plasma engine.

Technology at the service of health

In spite of recent developments, the turnaround that health innovation was about to take place was recorded long ago.
