Crime is costing El Salvador more than $2 million a year, say business leaders

Friday, July 9, 2010


Crime is costing El Salvador more than $2 million a year, or some 11 percent of the total economy.

“This is a cost, in terms of public and private-sector spending, that affects the nation’s businesses and scares off foreign investment,”  
said Jorge Daboub, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
 
“It’s not just a problem for businesses because every Salvadoran has to pay the price,” added Daboub.
