El Salvador Analyzes Issuing Debt to Expand Airport

Officials are considering issuing bonds or taking loans to finance the expansion of AIES International Airport.

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Guillermo López Suárez, president of CEPA, the Airports Authority, explained they need $25 million to fund the expansion, and that they must study priorities, as this transaction would increase the country's level of debt.

Vilma Calderón, president of COEXPORT, the exporters association of El Salvador, remarked: "It is totally viable for it [AIES] to increase its level of debt, it is a solvent company".
