The agreements will make alternative sources of finance available to the countries for development projects.
The initiative is referred to as the Building Remittance Investment for Development Growth and Entrepreneurship (BRIDGE) and seeks to "strengthen economic growth through remittances sent from abroad as part of a goal to bring more people into the financial system," according to voanews.com.

Hugo Martínez, Salvadoran state minister, commented that “Cuba will be important in a program for those injured in the Salvadoran Wars, which ended in 1992 with peace agreements sponsored by the United Nations”.
