    Both countries also signed a statement of understanding for the establishment of an industrial zone specialized in Chinese investments in Costa Rican territory.

    The model to develop that area is the Chinese city of Suzhou, which Chinchilla also visited Shanghai this week during his tour.

    The president plans to travel to the Chinese city of Xian before embarking towards South Korea, the last leg of his Asian tour.
