San Jose, Costa Rica – The Ministry of Public Works and Transportation decided this afternoon to renew the contract it had with the company Riteve SyC for ten more years for the technical review of vehicles.
As explained by Rodrigo Rivera, Deputy Minister of Public Works and Transportation, the decision was made because they believe it is inappropriate to give up the transfer of equipment and facilities of the company that are worth more than $ 25 million.
The first contract between the state and Riteve was stipulated that the company would cede the equipment and infrastructure of the 17 inspection stations to the Government if the contract is renewed.
Rivera as Deputy Minister was in the last hours trying to promote the entry of a new player into the vehicle technical inspection sector. But he said, with current conditions, it was not possible.
