Development plan in El Salvador

El Salvador's President-elect, Nayib Bukele, outlined his economic plan for the coming years.
�By winning last Sunday's El Salvador elections, the Palestinian-born candidate broke the hegemony of the ruling parties, promising to double investment in education, security, and health. After winning 54% of the vote, the former mayor of San Salvador proposed to reduce taxes, encourage the middle class, control tax evasion and fight corruption.

In addition, the 37-year-old politician announced the creation and modernization of infrastructures, such as the train line or the Pacific Rim airport, and extensive investment in agriculture to curb high migration rates.
