After holding meetings with the Government of Costa Rica and the Investment Promotion Agency -CINDE-, Intel annnounced today that it will transform its operations in Costa Rica.

As part of its global strategy, the company will relocate its assembly and test operation to Asia, where these activities will be concentrated. Intel's Global Services Center, as well as the company's Engineering and Design Center will remain in their current location in Belen, Heredia. These operations will gain relevance in research and development related activities.
