Costa Rica has been rocked by the kind of protests rarely seen in the country in comparison with its more tumultuous Central American neighbours. Demonstrators have protested outside the presidential residence and blockaded roads across the country to demand that President Carlos Alvarado scrap a proposed fiscal reform before lawmakers. Costa Rica is struggling with a deficit estimated at 7.1 percent of GDP this year, which has elevated public debt and exposed the government fiscally. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
