Power Conflict Affects Investments in El Salvador

Aeroman’s expansion plans depend upon the solution of the current conflict between the legislative and judicial powers, due to the legal uncertainty it generates.

Friday, August 17, 2012

The Executive Director of Aeroman, Ernesto Ruiz, said that the Canadian company Aveos, the majority shareholder of Aeroman, is closely following the current conflict and will not continue with its expansion plans until it has been resolved.

Within the company’s expansion plans is the construction, in the first half of 2013, of a new hangar with an investment of approximately $25 million, said Ruiz.

"They (Aveos) first want to be certain that the rules are going to be the same. This problem is so serious that we want to see how they will resolve it because the future of legal certainty will depend on this", said the executive in Elsalvador.com.

Safety is More Important Than Tax Incentives

September 2014

In the view of entrepreneurs, insecurity is still the main factor preventing the arrival of larger flows of foreign direct investment to the region.

Despite the benefits and incentives of all kinds offered by governments to encourage the establishment of foreign companies in Central America, as long as violence and insecurity is not tackled in a more effective manner, investment flows will continue to dwindle.
