$700 million for public investment in El Salvador

Despite the electoral year and the economic crisis, public investment projects will continue, indicated Eduardo Ayala Grimaldi, technical secretary of the presidency.

Monday, February 2, 2009

According to Elsalvador.com: "About $700 million is budgeted for investment. Part of the monies had been set aside in the last budget and passed on to the one for 2009, not because the works did not start, but because they were tendered at the end of the year," Ayala Grimaldi said as a justification for the public construction projects that were outstanding from last year."
