An Agreement For Equity in El Salvador

Government and private enterprise agreed on creating a market economy that generates wealth and distributes it equally.

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

At the tenth edition of the National Encounter of the Private Enteprise (ENADE), which is organized by ANEP, the country's businessmen dialogued with President Mauricio Funes. They demanded greater certainty as to where the country is headed, less red-tape and permanent stability, regardless of the current administration. They also warned on not reviving failed ideologies or sustaining useless discussions.

In turn, president Funes committed to "creating a solid alliance between the private sector and the State", based on a modern wealth distribution scheme.

From "Funes called businessmen to protect freedom and promised to strictly respect the rules of the game in order to entice more investment and employment, while big companies stated their intention of collaborating with the Government to make the country grow .... there was optimism in the air".
