El Salvador: $ 2,000 Million Investment Frozen

At least seven projects are stalled, waiting for the country's situation to improve.

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

Newspaper elsalvador.com detailed major investment projects which are on stand-by in El Salvador:
- Cutuco Energy and AES Fonseca (energy, $ 1,630 million)
- Porto Pango (tourism, $ 300 million)
- Encanto Villas & Golf (residential, $ 100 million)
- Europlaza World Business Hotel (tourist and business)
- Q Towers (residential and business).

The reasons behind the decision to halt these projects are varied, and include difficult domestic and international economic conditions, poor public security and political and legal uncertainty.
