Analysis: Funes needs to build on Obama visit to lure investment to El Salvador

Tuesday, March 15, 2011


In his upcoming visit to El Salvador, President Obama is signaling assurance in the Funes government’s capacity to rebuild the economy, distribute wealth and contain the violence. 

We must hope that foreign investors will build upon this assurance to develop manufacturing plants, alternative energy production and agro-industrial businesses. If Funes builds upon the visit to attract new investment, El Salvador has an excellent chance of leading Central America towards greater prosperity.
