The Chinese are to begin the second stage of the national Stadium which represents an investment of $10 million and will take 10 months to complete. Most of the investment comes from China but the Costa Rican Institute of Sports and Recreation will pay employee insurance, INS policies, and exempting taxes on imported materials.
The stadium was inaugurated nine years ago. Before it’s construction, an agreement was made that the Chinese would return to execute a second stage. The new works will start in about 15 days when the materials arrive.
The team will include 13 Chinese citizens and 40 to 60 locals. The plan was to use mostly Chinese workers but the Coronavirus outbreak prevents people from moving from China to Costa Rica.
They will remodel the fire system and implement a pump room and sprinkler system. The electricity system will also be updated. Lamps will be replaced. Handrails will be installed on the stairs.
