An American visitor

The Washington Post has been running a series of articles about El Salvador in conjunction with a trip to the country by the County Executive of Montgomery County, Maryland, David Duncan. Montgomery County is close to Washington, D.C., and has a sizable population of Salvadoran immigrants.

Today's story featured a tour of a new tuna plant run by a Spanish company and speculations of how CAFTA might improve opportunities for business in the country.

Other stories included discussions about the common gang problem, El Salvador's search for investors in its emigrant community, and the high profile reception for Duncan, who is running for governor of Maryland.
