Launch of How Immigrant Contribute to Costa Rica's Economy in San José (ECLM project)

An event was held in San José on 30 July 2018 to launch the report, How Immigrants Contribute to Costa Rica's Economy. The report was produced in the context of the project "Assessing the economic contribution of labour migration in developing countries as countries of destination" (ECLM). The media advisory for this event can be downloaded below.

The launch event was the second and final event in Costa Rica for the EU-funded ECLM project, which is jointly implemented by the OECD Development Centre and the ILO. It follows the National Consultation Seminar held in this country in April 2015.

The launch provided an opportunity to share and discuss the findings and policy implications of the project with a focus on Costa Rica. It also served as a platform for policy dialogue between policy makers and representatives from academia, civil society and multilateral organisations.
