El Salvador's special zones 'are not designed for China'

Wednesday, August 15, 2018


The law on special economic zones that is being debated in the Legislative Assembly of El Salvador is not tailor-made for China, said Economy minister Luz Estrella Rodríguez.

The minister rejected allegations that the law was aimed at providing a Chinese foothold in El Salvador. "That's not true at all," she said.

"There are Chinese businesses that are interested but there are plenty more from other countries."
