El Salvador presents strategic projects at the UN Investment Fair

The strategic projects implemented by the government of President Nayib Bukele will be presented for the first time at the United Nations (UN) Investment Fair.

The Pacific Airport and the Shipyard in the port of La Unión will be among the main projects presented at said conclave, in which countries such as Nigeria, Colombia, Ecuador, the Republic of Guinea, and Guatemala, among others, will also participate.

The presidential commissioner for strategic projects, Cristian Flores, indicated that the projects that the government has created based on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be presented.

«The profile of El Salvador has been seen as a nation with new policies for its frontal action against corruption and crime, in addition to its great commitment to education. The projects have a strategic connotation, with relevance in time that will impact future generations» — confirmed the commissioner.

The presentation, which will be held virtually this Wednesday, April 27, will be followed by an interactive guided discussion with investors and experts on the opportunities presented by El Salvador.

With this event, El Salvador has the opportunity to show the world its potential in terms of connectivity and logistics, as well as demonstrating the confidence and certainty that the government transmits inside and outside the borders.

«President Nayib Bukele’s bets on logistics and connectivity are of great value to businessmen around the world» — said Barry Kolodkin, advisor to the United Nations.

The SDG Investment Fair is a platform that connects countries with private investors in order to direct investment to ready projects that support the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
