Global Atlanta - September 4, 2009
When the Georgia Institute of Technology opened a logistics innovation center Aug. 20 in Costa Rica, the country's president turned out to personally offer his support. In a keynote speech at a launch event in San Jose, President Oscar Arias said Tech's expertise in supply chain management would usher in a new era of prosperity by helping Costa Rican companies better reach overseas markets with their products... Georgia Tech President G.P.
