World Bank*

The Bank's CPS as designed around two pillars: (i) to address emerging challenging to continued growth and competitiveness including fiscal risk management and (ii) to continue to reduce income poverty and increase equity in social service provision. With the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) Costa Rica's trade integration has increased somewhat. On average Costa Rica has been exporting each year about US$ 1.2 billion to other CAFTA member countries while importing US$ 570 million. The volume of regional trade wavered with the effects of the global financial crisis falling slightly in 2009 and rebounding in 2010. Bank support in this area focused on telecommunications and was to be provided through a FY09 Telecommunications Reform project. There is no data on how regional development progressed during the CPS period. Bank support came from the FY08 port/city project for Limon and a follow-up project for the port/city of Puntarenas. Progress in implementing the Limon project has been slow and the Puntarenas project was dropped.

European Commission*

EU development funding for Costa Rica aims mainly to support social cohesion and regional integration. In 2002-2006 the European Commission provided funds for: •modernising and decentralising public administration (30.5%) •economic cooperation (35%) •science and technology (34.5%)
