Goal 7: Promote a national dialogue on actions to improve citizen security in El
Salvador. Actively involve all sectors of national life, including the private sector,
the media, nongovernmental organizations, churches, etc, in efforts to solve the
problem of insecurity.
On Track
The USG and GOES continue to implement a joint communications strategy to promote discussion of
PFG efforts to improve citizen security in El Salvador. This includes press outreach, publication of articles on PFG and security issues, websites in English and Spanish, access to official PFG documents and sharing of information on actions taken to address PFG goals under the security constraint. The GOES

6 and USG, with private sector support and participation, organized a public fair to celebrate the second anniversary of PFG in December 2013. During the daylong event, held at a popular San Salvador shopping mall, over 1,500 people visited stands and learned about the partnership between the USG and GOES to combat crime and increase economic growth in El Salvador. The fair received ample media coverage, including a front page article with pictures in La Prensa Grafica newspaper. Two other major public events, the launch of violence prevention plans in 13 municipalities, and the visit of a group of Salvadoran mayors to Colombia to learn about crime and violence prevention activities, were widely publicized. The number of public events was reduced temporarily, due to restrictions required by electoral law during the presidential election. Meetings of Municipal Crime Prevention Councils, which are supported directly by the USG, continued to take place to define local action plans. The Government of El Salvador launched a complementary effort for rehabilitation and reinsertion of youth in seven municipalities, known as the Commissions for Municipal Dialogue. The Ministry of Justice and Public Security continued to organize monthly fora on public security at the local (department) level. The President and Minister of Justice and Public Security continued to meet with various sectors of society to promote a national consensus on crime prevention and public security
