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
President-elect Sanchez Ceren invited the Growth Council’s private sector members to remain for the new administration. The reforms to the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) law, which the Council and its technical team developed, were passed by the Legislative Assembly on April 25. A law establishing
PROESA as a semi-autonomous institution and the primary GOES entity responsible for managing PPP development was also passed in April. Other legislation, such as the Judicial Stability Law and the Electronic Signature Law, remain pending in the Legislative Assembly. The November 2013 forum on Strategies for Strengthening the Value Chain of Shrimp and Synthetic Fiber and the January 2014 forum Challenges in Reactivating the Cacao Sector in El Salvador were organized to enhance growth in strategic tradables sectors. The FUSADES private sector business climate perception survey continued to reveal a negative trend with a 48 percent unfavorable opinion in the most recent report (last three months of 2013), with only 10 percent perceiving a favorable climate. El Salvador’s rank in the Doing Business Report remains as reported in the previous Scorecard, having decreased to 118 out of 189 countries in the 2013-2014 report from 113 out of 185 countries in the 2012-2013 report.
