The president of the Export and Investment Promotion Agency of El Salvador (known as PROESA), Salvador Gómez Góchez, held a meeting with representatives of the Intermunicipal Association of the Jiboa Valley (MIJIBOA) and sugarcane panela producers in San Vicente.


The aim of the visit was to provide support and guidance from PROESA in the association´s future projects and products. 


Also, during the meeting was presented a plan to strengthen and modernize the panela grinding, aimed at technifying and reactivating this industry. During the presentation, the producers were shown how to increase the volume of production and the possible markets to commercialize their products.


“It is a great honor for me to be here with such an important sector as the sugarcane panela industry. Our intention is to support you in improving production and finding the ideal markets for the export of your products”, Gómez Góchez said.  


On the other hand, Galileo Hernández, president of MIJIBOA, said: “We thank the president of PROESA for supporting the producers of the municipalities of MIJIBOA. We want to work together with the government of president Nayib Bukele and reactivate the industry that generates many jobs”.


The president of PROESA also reiterated the government´s role, saying that president Nayib Bukele has instructed them to “support all production sectors and increase the country´s exports”. These efforts are part of the Despegue Económico Plan to improve the economy of Salvadorans.


At the end of the meeting, the producers were optimistic about the modernization of their processes. PROESA, for its part, committed itself to follow up on the plan and the producers´ needs.  


MIJIBOA is an association that promotes its economic activity and territorial identity by encouraging tourism in the Jiboa Valley.
