"I´ve kept my promise, because I believe that Costa Rica should not advance in the Pacific Alliance until the agricultural sector says we are ready to go and win," Alvarado said during the signing of the construction law of the Value Added Center for the North Zone farmers.

"I keep that promise, but I keep it hand in hand with specific objectives and results," the Costa Rican president stressed. The inclusion of Costa Rica in the bloc, made up of Mexico, Colombia, Chile and Peru, was a priority for the former Laura Chinchilla government (2010-2014).
