They are listed below so you can familiarise yourself with them in preparation for that break you’ve been dreaming about.
1. Preserving the identity of Central American people
If diversity is wealth, looking after the different cultures which coexist in Central America is truly important. Key to this is preserving the identity of the peoples in this part of the continent. To contribute to the conservation of the different cultures, education must start in the family and at school, but must continue in other areas of society. How can this be achieved? Through respect for the law, maintaining a strong democratic system, etc.
2. Boosting tourism as an economic driver
Tourism is an economic driver. It needs to be reactivated following the health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. With this in mind, countries such as BelizeCosta Rica and Guatemala are promoting digitalisation as a way to attract visitors again. For this, they’ve set up virtual platforms, 360-degree online tours, various internet portals and other cyberspace experiences. These countries have agreed on promoting quality as another approach. The first results offer a positive outlook.
3. Boosting sustainable development is another challenge in Central America
The challenges in Central America also include sustainability. In line with the criteria of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals, the different governments have already started to implement actions which favour this. Security is one of the key points, as well as opening dialogue and spaces for designing strategies in this regard. In this particular case, public policies play an essential role. Continuing to promote them is essential in order to achieve the right results.
4. Promoting entrepreneurship
The region has significant infrastructure throughout its entire surface area. From ports to logistics systems, airports, a canal linking the two oceans, an expanding road network, geothermal plants, etc. All this results in an attractive market which favours business activity and commercial exchange within and beyond the borders of its different states. By promoting this is, it will bring more opportunity for the future.
