The Opinion of Entrepreneurs in El Salvador

The ENADE 2015 survey reveals that 90% of Salvadoran entrepreneurs believe that the country has regressed in its competitiveness compared to other countries in the region.

Monday, July 6, 2015

In the view of the private sector, among the factors that have caused a loss of competitiveness for El Salvador are the high levels of crime, political and economic instability, constant changes to laws, lack of competitive infrastructure, and increased taxes.

Among the results of the business survey by the National Association of Private Enterprise (ANEP) is the dismal grade given by the private sector to autonomous institutions such as the Executive Hydroelectric Commission of the Lempa River (CEL) and the Autonomous Executive Port Commission (CEPA) .

As expected, the performance of President Sanchez Ceren was described by an overwhelming majority (87.7%) of those responsible for the actual productive sector of El Salvador as 'bad' or 'very bad' (very bad performance 57.9% bad performance 27 , 8%).
