The government of President Nayib Bukele, through the Foreign Ministry and the Consumer Ombudsman, works to bring advisory services to Salvadorans living abroad and guide them in their concerns and needs.
“I am excited, happy, and proud to be able to give our Salvadoran diaspora another piece of good news (signing of an agreement to bring services closer to consumers)” — said the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alexandra Hill Tinoco.
The agreement aims to establish a cooperation framework with the Consumer Protection Office that allows the execution of the “Project for the Comprehensive Protection of Consumer Rights of the Salvadoran Diaspora.”
“For decades, our compatriots were abandoned, treated indifferently, and always in the last row; this was the care of past administrations for our diaspora” — said the head of the Foreign Ministry.
The consumer service counters will work at the general consulates of El Salvador in Los Angeles, California; Houston, Texas; Long Island, New York; and Silver Spring, Maryland.
“We have been working hard to bring a comprehensive response to the diaspora that for decades has waited for government support through the Foreign Ministry” — said the president of the Consumer Protection Office, Ricardo Salazar.
