Second effort at multisectoral dialogue starts in Costa Rica
San Jose, Oct 23 (Prensa Latina) Called by the Executive and the Legislative powers, a multisectoral dialogue will start on Friday to find solutions to the health, economic and social crisis in Costa Rica, aggravated over the past two weeks due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The invitation letter for this second effort to hold national dialogue was sent on Tuesday to some 70 organizations from nine sectors by Costa Rican President Carlos Alvarado and Legislative Assembly Speaker Eduardo Cruickshank.
In the letter, they said that the objective of this new meeting is 'to redesign and implement together the mechanisms that will guide the presentation and analysis of proposals on economic growth, job generation and the sustainability of public finances'.
A first effort to establish a Multisectoral Board of Agreements last Saturday failed a day before, when 13 of 25 guests refused to participate, asked for more time or did not even respond to the call.
For the first session today, to be held at the National Stadium in this capital, representatives of 62 of some 70 guests have confirmed participation, many of whom will listen to the Government's proposals, while the opposition National Liberation, Social Christian, National Restoration and New Republic parties refused to take part.
The Presidential House informed that political scientist and academic Ilka Treminio and economist and university professor Victor Umaña will facilitate the multisectoral dialogue.
