ByJohn S. McClenahen Whether or not the U.S. Congress will act on the pending Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) this year remains uncertain. But El Salvador, one of the six central American nations included in the pact, isn't waiting to make its investment case to manufacturers and other U.S. businesses.

Textiles, electronics, auto parts, software development and agribusiness are among the investment opportunities that she highlights.
