World Bank pleads for businesses to fight violence

Friday, April 20, 2012

The president of the World Bank, Robert Zoellick, called on the Central American business community to get directly involved in fighting the violence raging through the region.

The undersecretary of State for the United States, Maria Otero, praised the governments of Costa Rica and Honduras for passing taxes aimed to improve security.

María Eugenia Brizuela, a former Salvadoran official, said: "Governments can't go it alone in fighting security. They need support from the private sector."
