WATCH: VP Harris issues “call to action” for businesses to invest in Guatemala, Honduras And El Salvador

During a recent meeting with representatives from a dozen companies and nongovernmental organization, Vice President Harris encouraged businesses to invest in Central American.

Per KVNF, Harris said the Biden administration is issuing a “call to action” to companies, banks and social enterprises to invest in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

“When we work together, when we combine resources — limited though they are for each one of us — we can maximize the potential to give people in that region hope, and in that way also show what it means to be a good neighbor,” Harris said.
