Costa Rican finance minister quits

Costa Rica's finance minister, Rocio Aguilar, stepped down Oct. 23 after the country's comptroller officially reprimanded her for authorizing public debt payments in 2018 without congressional consent.

Aguilar's resignation comes amid an effort to enact austerity measures to prevent issues with future debt payments, the newswire noted.

The reforms, which included a tax hike and limits on public worker wages, had been met with widespread criticism.
