El Salvador

In 1981 El Salvador was still sunk in the protracted conflict which has aroused worldwide attention and has reinforced the climate of uncertainty and polarization of social forces in the country. This grave crisis has had profound and dramatic repercussions which could last for several generations and which are in some cases totally irreparable, such as the tens of thousands of human lives lost. Moreover, the material losses have been so great that their effects will be felt at least beyond the medium term. Although it would be premature to try to specify the financial cost of economic reactivation and the restoration of the highway, energy, communications, transport, productive equipment and housing infrastructures which would be necessary in order to make good the damage, any estimate would come to hundreds of millions of dollars at least.
