Costa Rica News –The Government is negotiating with deputies for a reform to the bill related to the strengthening of Incofer, in order to finance the electrical train coming our way with an increase in tolls.

It’s still not much, but percentage wise that’s a big jump.

Presidency Vice-Minister, Luis Paulino Mora, said this is the most viable option to provide the entity with funds, and to set a defined electrical train project in motion.
