He is a political conservative and has focused on reducing unemployment and eliminating bureaucracy. Chavez is a 30-year veteran of the World Bank and a holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Ohio State University.

Rodrigo Chavez Robles - New President of Costa RicaWe think this is great news for our little corner of the world and we are 100% behind this new president. If he is able to make it easy for businesses to get permits and cut through red tape and succeeds at reducing some of the government bloat then it will be a success. We are looking forward to having a president that thinks about the fiscal health of the country first and not just tax and spend.

Rodrigo Alberto de Jesús Chaves Robles (born 10 June 1961) Chaves was previously Minister of Finance during the presidency of Carlos Alvarado Quesada.
