El Salvador seen growing 1.7 percent
The economy of El Salvador is expected to grow 1.7 percent this year, compared with 2013, according to the International Monetary Fund.
The Fund's forecast is lower than the Salvadoran government's estimate of between 2.3 and 2.6 percent growth.
The rest of the countries in Central America are expected grow twice as much, even those with similar levels of crime and debt as El Salvador, such as Honduras and Guatemala.
