Constraint 2: Low Productivity in the Tradables Sector

Goal 1: Facilitate the establishment of a Growth Council to promote an
environment of trust and improve the business climate and investments in
activities or sectors regarded as strategic.
On Track
The Growth Council reconvened after a four month recess. On October 18, the Executive Branch
presented to the National Assembly drafts of a Contract Stability Law and an Electronic Signature Law. It
also presented proposed reforms to both the Free Trade Zone Law and the International Services Law.
During this period, the Salvadoran Export Promotion Agency (PROESA) and the International Training
Center for Government Authorities and Leaders (CIFAL-Atlanta) established an MOU, thanks to the
support of the US. Department of Commerce and the US. Department of State. Additionally, the
National Commission for Micro and Small Businesses (CONAMYPE) conducted an assessment entitled
"Integrated Framework for Assessment of a Favorable Environment for the Development of Women
Entrepreneurs.” The first indicator for this goal is the private sector’s perception of the business climate
in El Salvador, as measured by FUSADES, which revealed a negative trend through the third quarter of
2012. The second is El Salvador’s ranking in the Doing Business Report which placed El Salvador 113
out of 185 countries in the 2013 report, as compared to 112 out of 183 in 2012.
