The President of the Republic, Nayib Bukele, highlighted the publication of an opposition newspaper, where he highlighted that El Salvador is the only country in the region where inflation slowed down in April.
«El Salvador was the only country in the region where inflation slowed down between March and April, as confirmed by data from the latest report published by the Central American Monetary Council (SECMCA),» the newspaper said.
Given this, the president pointed out that the measures implemented by his government have been successful, even when the opposition questioned the decisions of the head of state.
»And an opposition newspaper says It is clear that although we are facing a global phenomenon, we are doing better than many claimed,» he stressed.
The media affirms that, even when comparing the data published in both months by the SECMCA, in which the central banks of the region and the Institute of Statistics and Census of Panama are taken as a source, it is known that El Salvador was the third country with the lowest inflation in the region in April.
