The investment magazine fDi Intelligence, belonging to the London newspaper Financial Times, in its publication Cities of the Future 2021/2022, considered San Salvador, capital of El Salvador, as the best medium-sized city in Latin America in terms of costs to attract foreign investment. As regards profitability, San Salvador is the most competitive, and stands out among important cities in Mexico, Brazil and Costa Rica.
