An investor transforms, develops and innovates his/her ideas, implementing mechanisms necessary to achieve objectives.

To invest means to modify or change positions, in other words it's the implementation of effort and time to achieve future benefits. In that sense, investment is the main engine for a business' development, investment can be quantitative (economic contribution) or qualitative (human resources and/or innovative ideas).

In El Salvador, the mechanisms to generate foreign investment have been strengthened in the public and private sectors, which has led to foreign companies fixing their gaze in El Salvador, considering the country a strong territory for growth. The most recent example of this is seen on March 3rd, 2016, with the approval to reform the Law of the National General Budget, in the fields of Economy and Foreign Affairs, "The reform includes the transfer of resources for $22,452.00 for the adoption of international legal instruments to improve the conditions of access of Salvadoran exports of goods and services that help attract investment and technology to the country, that are intended to standardize the operation before the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)".

It is noteworthy that "2015 closed with a positive growth of 2.4%, economic activity according to the results of the Nowcast indicator. The figures at the end of 2015 of the Volume Index of Economic Activity, showed a moderate growth in the volume produced through its annual variation rate of 1.1 % compared to what was achieved in December, 2014; the same month last year recorded a negative rate value of -0.1%" so it is expected that the trend for 2016 is to keep growing, creating an enabling environment for investment, for example in the renewable energy sector.

Companies that want to invest in El Salvador must have comprehensive legal advice that allows the investor to comply with legal and technical aspects of the different institutions involved depending on the productive sector requirements.
