Insecurity deters investment to region

Friday, August 29, 2014

Despite Central America's governments increasing their efforts to attract foreign investment, regional experts said insecurity remains the main deterrent for investors.

"Physical safety is more important to an investor than fiscal incentives," said Eduardo Montúfar, an auditor at Panama's MGI.

Panama and Nicaragua have a better security perception, however, the biggest problem is in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, known as the region's Northern Triangle, said Salvadoran Edenilson Rodríguez.
