"The ten contracts comprise the development of 16 projects in El Salvador's northern communities, of which seven are for drinking water systems and basic sewage treatment, three relate to project works supervision and another three to technical assistance and maintenance," José Ángel Quirós, Fomilenio executive director, told laprensagrafica.com.
The country is among the eleven lower middle income countries who are candidates to qualify for the Millennium Fund for the fiscal year 2012.
The country passed 14 of the 20 indicators used by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to test the Assembly of El Salvador, including the three that are mandatory: Control of Corruption, Civil Liberties and Political Rights.
To obtain a second donation from the Millennium Challenge Account, the country must reach the objectives of the program in the established dates.
The Millennium Funds Program (FOMILENIO), was started in El Salvador in September 12, 2007, with a total donation of $460.9 million, contributed by the United States Millennium Challenge Account (MCA).
The infrastructure and road network built with funding from the Millennium Challenge Corporation should be the focus of new development projects in the area.
An article in ElSalvador.com reports that Jose Angel Quiros, former executive director of Fomilenio, said "I have no information on new projects in the north, but without a doubt thought must be given to how to maximize that infrastructure and road network for the country's productive sectors ... the region's strategic programs north of the country, carried out with the first funds from the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) between 2009 and 2012, must be diversified and enhanced with new works.
