Thinking about investing in Costa Rica? You're not alone. American manufacturing giant Procter & Gamble (P&G) announced on Feb 4, 2013 that it will open a new supply-chain planning facility in Costa Rica. The Procter & Gamble Costa Rica facility will service P&G's entire Latin American operation and will consolidate the supply-chain planning of 25 company operations.
The new facility means an investment in Costa Rica of $5-6 million US Dollars and the creation of 500 new jobs for engineers, business administrators and logistics and customs specialists.
P&G has operated in Costa Rica since 1999 and chose the country again after evaluating several other options.
