Goal 2: Reduce firms costs due to infrastructure to improve their
On Track


In the second half of 2012, the Legislative Assembly approved measures to support the financing of the
modernization of the International Airport of El Salvador (AIES). The Central American Bank for
Economic Integration (BCIE) approved $92 million in AIES modernization financing. The Salvadoran Port
Authority (CEPA) is in the final stages of analyzing, with the assistance of US. Treasury technical
advisors, the most appropriate financing options to cover the full requirements of the AIES modernization
project which is set to begin during the first quarter of 2013. The USG continues to work with CEPA to
build a team of experts to form a project management office to administer the AIES master plan
expansion project, which the GOES is incorporating into a possible Millennium Challenge Corporation
(MCC) second compact. The consulting contract for the AIES master plan is expected to be awarded and
initiated by the end of 2012. CEPA has signed a $216,000 agreement with the US. Trade and
Development Agency (USTDA) to develop a bathymetric study, which consists of measuring the depth of
navigation canals and maneuvering marinas at the La Union Port. In collaboration with the USG, a solar
energy (photovoltaic) feasibility study for the GOES energy company CEL is underway and expected to be
completed in the first half of 2013. The two indicators for this goal are investment (public and private) in
infrastructure as percent of GDP, which will be reported for the next period and the Global
Competitiveness infrastructure index which ranked El Salvador 72 out of 144 in the 2012-2013 report.
