The diplomatic act officialized the mission headed by Chinese specialists to study the plan to build this Central American country's new National Stadium, expected to be concluded in late 2009.

"It is Costa Rica's most important sports infrastructure," said Costa Rica's Health and Sports vice minister Osvaldo Pandolfo.

The construction of the 40,000-seat stadium forms part of the accords signed between the presidents of Costa Rica and China, Oscar Arias and Hu Jintao, respectively, during Arias' first visit to the Asian country in October of 2007.

"This is the first step to comply and follow up the accords and to benefit Costa Rica's people. We also expect it is a friendship symbol between both countries," said Wang.

Stagno highlighted that "all the accords signed during President Arias' visit to Beijing contribute to strengthen the relations between both countries."
