El Salvador is ugly duckling of foreign investment

Monday, June 14, 2010

Despite dollarization, El Salvador faces political uncertainty and high crime levels as bars to foreign direct investment.

This year, El Salvador earned $431 million in foreign investment, the lowest level of all in Central America.

The economy minister, Héctor Dada, complains that critics are unable to distinguish between “verbal polarization and instability in politics”.

He also points out that other countries attract investment despite high levels of crime.
