The activities implemented by MITUR and its subsidiary CORSATUR are intended to coordinate action across diverse sectors in order to transform tourism sustainably into a main source of employment and income for the local population, improving their quality of life. The different institutions involved in the sector require more competencies in tourism development along the coast and they must participate in management models as members of advisory committees or otherwise. The capacities of local stakeholders to shape policy toward sustainable local development is one of the most important factors that will determine the success of developing coastal tourism in El Salvador.
To strengthen administrative offices and urban tourism associations so that they can establish public-private partnerships to plan and implement tourism development in their areas.
An analysis will be carried out on what is required for tourism management to strengthen the sector in the municipalities of Chiltiupán, Comasagua, Jayaque, La Libertad, and Tamanique in La Libertad District. It will also be conducted in Alegría, Berlín, Jiquilisco, Puerto el Triunfo, San Dionisio and Usulután in Usulután District. Based on this analysis, activities will be designed to strengthen local development of the tourism sector along the coast, improving both quality and volume.
