Agenda for ICT Development in El Salvador

It is vital for the nation's economy that an agenda on Information and Communication Technologies be developed, accompanied by the relevant legislation.

Friday, May 17, 2013

Peter Argumedo, senior researcher at Fusades called for swift approval in the Legislative Assembly of the draft laws related to computer security, in order to promote an investment climate. "An economy must be competitive so that it can be linked to global production chains. If not, this will take away its capacity to create jobs," he said.

"The need for legislation to protect against computer crime is a reality that is echoed on several fronts, but another important issue is the streamlining of procedures, a factor that also improves the business climate", noted an article in Elmundo.com.sv.

"One of the most tangible efforts by the government, is the miempresa.gob.sv page. The director of the Registry of Commerce, Francisco Guerrero, said that this platform, is "unique in the world" because with a single operation various state services can be obtained. "
