San Salvador has a population of around 2.4 million. It is the capital of El Salvador, which has a Post Brexit Trade agreement with the UK.
San Salvador disproportionately concentrates economic activity in the country. The metropolitan area accounts for only 3% of the national territory, yet 70% of public and private investment is made there. The economy of San Salvador, Antiguo Cuscatlán, and Santa Tecla is a mixed one composed mainly of services, private education, banking, business headquartering, and industrial manufacturing. Other municipalities in the metropolitan area depend either on industry, like Soyapango and Ilopango, on public services, like Mejicanos, or on power generation, as in Nejapa and Apopa. The other municipalities have not developed their own economies, however, they have provided the workforce required for industry in neighboring municipalities.
San Salvador, as well as the rest of the country, has used the U.S. dollar as its currency of exchange since 2001. Under the Monetary Integration Law, El Salvador adopted the U.S. dollar as a legal tender alongside the colón. This decision came about as an attempt to encourage foreign investors to launch new companies in El Salvador, saving them the inconvenience of conversion to other currencies.
A WINDOW FOR POST BREXIT TRADE
Following Brexit, the UK can strike its own deals for buying and selling goods and services around the world.
A Trade Agreement facilitates trade – usually in goods but sometimes in services too – by making it cheaper. This is often achieved by reducing or eliminating tariffs – charges for trading across borders.
While the UK was an EU member, it was automatically part of around 40 trade deals which the EU had struck with more than 70 countries. Post Brexit, however, there is a need for the UK to be able to access markets outside the EU that the UK has its own trade deals with.
