El Salvador must follow its own path, not Venezuela’s, says Funes

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Staking out a middle ground in a highly polarized region, El Salvadoran President Mauricio Funes said he was not interested in US-style capitalism or Venezuela-inspired socialism but policies that made his nation “effective and efficient.”
Funes brushed off the idea that his government might try to adopt the “21st century socialism” that Venezuela has tried to export to allies such as Nicaragua and Bolivia.
“In El Salvador, it's not possible to build socialism and much less 21st century socialism, which I really cannot define and is not clear to me,” said Funes.
