For the purpose of expanding Salvadoran businesses in the United States, a new group of international businessmen, together with the president of the Salvadoran corridor in Los Angeles, Óscar Domínguez, has already met with local authorities to make possible a new commercial space in Brentwood, Long Island, New York.
Everything indicates that the ideal area to establish the new corridor will be drawn in eight blocks on the main street, Pine Aire Dr, from Pine Grove Boulevard to Savoy Avenue, initially with 20 travel agency businesses, remittances, clinics, laundries , restaurants and construction companies.
This is the third city where the community intends to make a presence with the best of the workforce, boost the Salvadoran economy and talent in the United States. This brokerage strategy has also been discussed in Virginia, Texas, and another location in New York. In addition to the already established corridors in Los Angeles and Maryland.
The Salvadoran Dimas Escobar, owner of the seafood restaurant ¡Qué Rica Comida! and one of the leaders of the project, explained that the goal of the corridor in Brentwood will help the community to stand out and have more presence in American politics since they are contributing economically to the country.
«The idea is to follow the route of Salvadorans in the different cities of the United States,» said Escobar, who emigrated to the North American country in 1986 for fear of armed conflict. Since he arrived in New York, he has dedicated himself to the restaurant business and worked for two Italians, but it was not until 1989 that he started his own seafood and food outlets.
For a month, they have been in dialogue with legislators Jorge Guadrón and Sam González. Both showed interest in making the corridor a reality, according to the businessman.
In a Facebook post, Parliamentarian Guadrón, who is Salvadoran, shared photos of the meeting and commented: «The creation of a Salvadoran corridor where commercial activity, arts, and cultural events would be carried out to generate income and preserve cultural heritage was discussed. ». «The most important point is that Salvadoran communities have a development zone to give them a sense of cultural belonging. That those who live there buy and acquire the services, «said the president of the corridor in Los Angeles.
