Nearshore Forum: Aftercare and Other Strategies to Keep Foreign Investors Satisfied

Promoting foreign investment requires more than getting investors to open their wallets. The process demands ongoing care, transparency and a constant flow of pertinent, useful information.

NSAM had the opportunity to speak with Vanessa Gibson, Director of Investment Climate at Costa Rica’s investment promotion agency, known as CINDE. Gibson is a key official in one of the most successful IPAs in the CALA region and has built a reputation as a precise strategist in the game of investment promotion. Her work was recognized by NSAM during Nexus 2017.

From the importance of aftercare, to the benefits of being a small-sized IPA, Gibson shares some of the ins and outs of Costa Rica’s main investment promotion machine, plus the challenges it faces in an increasingly difficult economic climate.
