Hundreds of construction projects stuck in SETENA backlogs

October 18th, 2013 ( Between 200 and 300 construction projects are stuck in the backlogs of the National Environmental Technical Services (SETENA), which has not even begun the inspection process on the projects, according to Jaime Molina, president of the Costa Rican Union of Chambers and Associations of Private Business (UCCAEP).


Molina said that the backlog is slowing growth and the national economy.


UCCAEP along with investors and individuals from the Chamber of Construction are now asking SETENA to request additional funding from Finance Minister, Edgar Ayales in order to increase its staff, but so far have yet to receive a response.


“This not only affects the owners of construction projects, but hundreds of workers across the country,” Randall Murillo, executive director of the Chamber of Construction said.
