El Salvador and Saudi Arabia are strengthening their cooperation ties in order to carry out strategic projects.

The Salvadoran Vice Foreign Minister, Adriana Mira, held a meeting with representatives of the Saudi Fund for Development (SFD), in which they discussed different strategic projects that aim to benefit the Salvadoran population.

“His visit to El Salvador is very important for the administration of President Bukele, in which he is aimed at expanding cooperation opportunities with various partners. We appreciate his interest and his quick response to the different proposals that we have presented to you, in which we are making rapid progress. This visit is proof of this,” the official told the Saudi delegation.

According to the authorities, this organization operates as a partner for the sustainable economic development of countries that require it, through technical and financial resources, providing support to 84 countries from different regions, with initiatives focused on transportation and connectivity, infrastructure, energy, agriculture, industry, and international organizations, among others.

For its part, in El Salvador, opportunities have been followed up in the fields of renewable energies, wastewater treatment, tourism, as well as road infrastructure, focused on the border routes that link us with the Central American region, this after the rapprochement from Chancellor Alexandra Hill last October.

The SFD delegation will hold meetings with various institutions during the week, coordinated by the Foreign Ministry, to delve into the projects that are under management, the authorities added.
