San Jose, Costa Rica. April 30th, 2014 – The Ministry of Economy, Industry and Commerce of Costa Rica (Spanish acronym: MEIC), has just released its iOS application “MEIC Consumo”. This app represents an important step in the adoption of new technologies to bring government institutions closer to the population through Costa Rica’s “Gobierno Digital” (Digital Government) program.

“MEIC Consumo” provides information and recommendations for consumers to make better decisions when purchasing goods and services, and opens a portal to ask for consumer advice and make related inquiries.
