While the ambition of being a state employee grows, in the last two years the number of start up enterprises or early-stage companies fell by 35%.

The president-elect has announced that if it is necessary he will change the restrictive approach on electricity generation by private companies promoted by the Citizens Action Party.
So far the party of the newly elected president has postulated restricting power generation by private companies to a maximum of 15% of the total generated nationwide.

Seven bills designed to encourage investment are still pending in the legislative committees of finance, treasury, and economy.
Laprensagrafica.com reports that "The Legislative Assembly is about to close the first Legislative month of 2013 without having approved any of the reform initiatives and new laws proposed by the President, Mauricio Funes, to encourage investment. To date, the full Legislature has not yet voted on any of the seven initiatives in the hands of committees of finance, and economics. "
Beyond the new laws to promote domestic and foreign investment, the government must demonstrate the existence of legal security in El Salvador.
An article in Diario El Mundo reports that "The reform package that the government recently introduced to encourage domestic and foreign investment in the country, yesterday received the backing of the business association although they say there is still a lot to be do done."
The Salvadoran government is promoting a series of measures that are part of the model called "New Cycle for Investment, Development and Employment" which seeks to give renewed impetus to private investment in the country.
A press release from the Presidency of the Republic of El Salvador reads:
Employers are placing more and more value on employees ability to get involved and to take the initiative to do things independently, using innovative ideas.
Being an entrepreneur does not necessarily mean being the founder of a new businesses, but can also mean having an innovative attitude to finding solutions to problems and the habit of transforming challenges into opportunities. And that is something that can be done from inside companies.
