El Salvador and Spain sign a new partnership framework for $117 million.

Spain remains firm in El Salvador as one of the strategic partners that it contributes to so that the country can move towards sustainable development.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alexandra Hill Tinoco, and the Spanish Ambassador to El Salvador, Carlos de la Morena, signed today a new Country Association Framework (MAP) for $117 million for the period 2023–2026, in which they established a set of priorities to carry out actions between Spain and El Salvador in favor of the sustainable development of Salvadorans.

For her part, Tinoco explained that some of the areas on which the association framework will be focused will be the fight against poverty, quality education, gender equality, water and sanitation, human rights, and support for the public sector.

From 2015 to 2019, Spain and El Salvador maintained the MAP, which was extended from 2019 to 2023. On this day they signed the new framework that will last until 2026, with which both nations reiterate their friendship ties.

“We can be satisfied that after all the work that has been carried out, we are here today to celebrate the ninth joint cooperation commission of El Salvador and Spain,” said the Spanish ambassador to El Salvador, Carlos de la Morena.

The Country Association Framework is a strategy designed and shared between both nations whose main purpose is human development and the reduction of inequalities, which is why it integrates various actors in society to achieve the objectives.
