El Salvador Suspends Housing Fair in the US

CASALCO decided to discontinue the fifth housing fair, awaiting changes in the Salvadoran economy.

Thursday, May 28, 2009

The Salvadoran Construction Industry Chamber (CASALCO) believes that changes should include more long-term credit and the likely opening of a preferential interest law, among others.

German Rivas reported the statements of Ismael Nolasco, executive director of CASALCO, in Laprensagrafica.com: "There is unemployment and little credit availability in the United States, apart from the emotional instability Salvadorans abroad have due to the same crisis."
