Costa Rican President Praises Georgia Tech Logistics Center

Primary tabs

Global Atlanta - August 25, 2009The Georgia Institute of Technology on Aug. 20 formally launched a logistics center in the Costa Rican capital that will help the country realize its trade goals while paving the way for Tech to expand its influence in Latin America. The new Trade, Innovation and Productivity Center will conduct research, accumulate data, teach professionals and develop technologies to help Costa Rican companies export more efficiently. The center is set to become a venue for student and faculty research and exchange, but leaders say its role will go beyond education into a range of factors affecting the small country's quest to transform the way its companies get products to global markets. It also serves as the initial foothold for a planned network of such centers in Latin America, likely starting in Panama and Chile.
