10 Tasks for the Government of El Salvador

Even the modest 2.5% growth forecast for the Salvadoran economy will be difficult to achieve if the government does not undertake 10 basic tasks.

Monday, January 10, 2011

There is not much new in these 10 tasks suggested to the Funes administration by four notorious economists. The lack of political agreement is perhaps the main reason these tasks are still pending, threatening to achieve the 2.5% growth committed to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Manuel Enrique Hinds, Alexander Alle, Roberto Rubtio and Claudio De Rosa are the economists whom, in Elsalvador.com, are proposing these 10 tasks in order to revive El Salvador´s economy:

* Reduce debt
* Increased dialogue and less confrontation
* Clear economic signals
* Encourage exports
* Promote tourism
* Reduce crime level
* Promote development in Departments
* More jobs and lower taxes
* Improve education
* Build public-private partnerships
