The Challenge

Just one month after his inauguration, President of Costa Rica, Luis Guillermo Solís, sought to increase foreign direct investment and trade between Costa Rica and the U.S.


The DCI Strategy

With only one week’s notice, the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE) engaged DCI to execute two business missions for President Solís in New York and San Jose, California to promote opportunities for U.S. investment in Costa Rica.

  • Through DCI’s outreach, President Solís also made appearances on top broadcast networks such as Bloomberg Television, El Financiero, The Street, CNN en Español and Reuters Insider.
  • In total, these interviews produced 17 stories with a reach of 50+ million.
