Investment in El Salvador
El Salvador - InvestmentEconomic conditions likely remained downbeat in Q3, despite improving somewhat, after Q2’s record GDP contraction due to the fallout from the pandemic. Economic activity continued to shrink in August, albeit at the softest pace since March, which suggests that the downturn has bottomed out. Moreover, exports grew for the first time in seven months in September, while imports decreased at the softest pace in six months, hinting at a pickup in domestic demand. Meanwhile, remittances continued to climb from April’s collapse through September, as employment levels improved in the U.S. However, Covid-19 cases continued to rise in September–October, which could weigh on activity in Q4. In brighter news, in late October, the OPEC Fund for International Development approved a USD 35 million public sector loan to support small- and medium-sized businesses hit by the pandemic.
