The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – San Jose is the best city in Latin America for companies to find outsourcing support services such as accounting, risk analysis, and human resources according to the latest study published on Wednesday by the international firm, Tholons.

The analysis – which ranks the top 100 cities in the world for business services support – placed the Costa Rican capital in 11th place.

The CEO of the Costa Rican Coalition for Development Initiatives ( CINDE ), Jorge Sequeira, said the top spot in the study, now for a second year in a row, is an excellent reference point for new companies seeking to establish themselves in the country and acquire third party services.

Sequeira added that these international studies allow the country to stand out and demonstrate strong evidence of the business climate for new investments.

This study, published since 2006, puts San Jose at the top of the continent among other large cities competing in the ranks such as Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Montevideo, Santiago Chile and Mexico City.

Currently, the multinational services sector is comprised of about 150 companies that generate 50,000 direct jobs, a figure that has tripled since 2000, according to data from CINDE.

In addition, services account for 35.6 percent of the national exports, according to general manager of PROCOMER, Pedro Beirute Prada. (Amelia Rueda)
