Andrés Valenciano, the Minister of Foreign Trade, expressed his pleasure with the news and commented, “Today, the service sector represents one of the primary engines for our development, which allows us, as a country, to continue advancing towards a knowledge-based economy. By the end of 2020, in this sector alone, an accumulated 81,371 jobs had been created. TradeStation's announcement on its growth, and the 100 jobs that will be added, is another example of how multinationals continue contributing to the development and well-being of our economy. We congratulate TradeStation and all its employees, and we deeply appreciate their commitment to and trust placed in Costa Rica.
Maria Hodgson, Senior Manager of TradeStation, stated, “Our Costa Rica office has supported company growth over the years. The quality of our employees, both on a professional level, as well as their technical knowledge on securities and their commitment to strong performance, has been key to the company's development. Our Costa Rican personnel have shown professional development in the nine years we've been in the country.”
