President Carlos Alvarado has asked Microsoft to develop technology in Costa Rica and the company agreed to provide artificial intelligence to support the country in its digital transformation.
The company has been here for 25 years but focused on regional level customer service and corporate sales. The hope is that is will install technology development operations and Costa Rica will become home to its technological and scientific production. This would benefit Microsoft as well, as the country offers great human talent.
The president held a meeting with senior executives of Microsoft to speak about the conditions offered by Costa Rica. Microsoft is committed to supporting the country by implementing the Bicentennial Plan of digital transformation.
Microsoft will be installed in the Universal Tower in Sabana Sur, under construction as part of the San Jose Technological City complex. The President hopes this will create jobs including virtual employment to all regions of the country.
