Canning House is delighted to welcome the Ambassador of Costa Rica to the UK, His Excellency J. Enrique Castillo, to give a round-table briefing for corporate members. Ambassador Castillo will provide an update on the political and economic affairs of Costa Rica, as well as insights on business opportunities in specific sectors.

An attorney, sociologist, politician, university professor, diplomat and writer, prior to his arrival in London, Ambassador Castillo was Costa Rica’s Minister of Foreign Affairs (2011-14). He has held other prominent posts including a role as Costa Rica’s Permanent Representative to the Organisation of American States (OAS) (2007-11).

He has also served as a judge during the early years of his legal practice in San José (1971-72), and has been partner of the prestigious firm Facio & Cañas since 1980, through which he developed his distinguished career as a brilliant trial lawyer and consultant.

Ambassador Castillo was Professor of Law and Politics at the University of Costa Rica for 33 years, retiring in 2002, even becoming the country’s Minister of Justice (1994-95). One of his finest accomplishments came in 1983, when he founded the University of Costa Rica’s Postgraduate Law Programme (the only university in the country at the time), and served as its first Director-General.

This event is intended for corporate members of Canning House. If you would like to attend, please email [email protected].
