Technology, Productivity, and Prosperity in Latin America and the Caribbean

1 Share
Abstract

While adoption of new technologies is understood to enhance long-term growth and average per-capita incomes, its impact on lower-skilled workers is more complex and merits clarification. Concerns abound that advanced technologies developed in high-income countries would inexorably lead to job losses of lower-skilled, less well-off workers and exacerbate inequality. Conversely, there are countervailing concerns that policies intended to protect jobs from technology advancement would themselves stultify progress and depress productivity. This book squarely addresses both sets of concerns with new research showing that adoption of digital technologies offers a pathway to more inclusive growth by increasing adopting firms’ outputs, with the jobs-enhancing impact of technology adoption assisted by growth-enhancing policies that foster sizable output expansion. The research reported here demonstrates with economic theory and data from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico that lower-skilled workers can benefit from adoption of productivity-enhancing technologies biased towards skilled workers, and often do. The inclusive jobs outcomes arise when the effects of increased productivity and expanding output overcome the substitution of workers for technology. While the substitution effect replaces some lower-skilled workers with new technology and more highly-skilled labor, the output effect can lead to an increase in the total number of jobs for less-skilled workers. Critically, output can increase sufficiently to increase jobs across all tasks and skill types within adopting firms, including jobs for lower-skilled workers, as long as lower-skilled task content remains complementary to new technologies and related occupations are not completely automated and replaced by machines. It is this channel for inclusive growth that underlies the power of pro-competitive enabling policies and institutions—such as regulations encouraging firms to compete and policies supporting the development of skills that technology augments rather than replaces—to ensure that the positive impact of technology adoption on productivity and lower-skilled workers is realized.

New technologies provide a pathway to poverty reduction and could usher in a wave of higher productivity and growth across Latin America and the Caribbean, according to a new World Bank report.

At a time of growing fears of a future where automation replaces employees, technological innovation could create more and better jobs in the coming years—for both for skilled and unskilled workers in the region, the report Jobs of Tomorrow: Technology, Productivity, and Prosperity in Latin America and the Caribbean finds.

“We should adopt and promote technology and innovation to boost economic growth, poverty reduction and increase opportunities for all, rather than creating barriers,” said Jorge Familiar, World Bank Vice-President for Latin America and Caribbean. “Better education and training will be key to ensure youth can take full advantage of the digital world and be prepared for the work of tomorrow.”

According to the report, Latin America and the Caribbean has lower rates of digital technology adoption than similar countries in the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), providing ample space to increase productivity. Barriers also often drive up the price of productivity-enhancing technology. For example, smartphones and tablets in some countries in the region are the most expensive in the world. Tariffs and taxes on technology may be holding back per capita GDP growth by more than 1 percentage point a year across the region.

“With more technology comes more productivity,” said report author Mark Dutz, World Bank Lead Economist of the Macroeconomics, Trade and Investment Global Practice. “Companies can lower variable costs, expand production, reach more markets, make more money and in the process create more and better jobs.”

Studies on Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico find that lower-skilled workers can, and often do, benefit from adopting digital technologies. In addition, technology can have a strong impact on worker mobility, making it easier for job seekers to find information about job opportunities. It works both ways, making for better employer-employee matches.

Online trading platforms also level the playing field between small and large firms seeking access to international markets. International transactions over the Internet disproportionately benefit smaller firms – the same firms that tend to hire relatively more lower-skilled workers.

The report recommends some key areas where policies can help harness the productive power of this digital revolution. They include:

  • Making technologies available to local firms at globally-competitive prices. In Colombia, for example, manufacturing firms who adopted the use of high speed internet saw a direct increase in demand for laborers and lower-skilled production workers as well as higher-skilled professional workers.
  • Ensuring that firms have incentives to invest in technology upgrading and exports rather than seeking protection from competition. Policies and institutions that encourage firms to compete lead them to invest in improving their product quality and lowering costs and prices rather than investing in obtaining government privileges. Firms can also benefit from adopting better management practices to increase production and distribution – an area with huge potential in the region.
  • Educating workers to prepare them for the jobs of tomorrow that will demand new, more sophisticated skills. In Brazil, for instance, more technology-intensive industries increasingly rely on employees to do more cognitive and analytical tasks in which communication and interpersonal skills are in particularly high demand.

Turning away from technology because of fears about technological change would be a costly mistake. New technologies can and should be embraced to support shared prosperity across Latin America and the Caribbean, the report concludes.

Cuba ahead of the departure of Raúl Castro Ruz

1 Share

Note from the editor : El Nuevo Día toured Cuba to gather the opinions of Cubans about the process of presidential change in the country, visited Arroyos de Mantua, on the western tip, Hershey, on the outskirts of Havana, Placetas, in the center of the island, Second Front, town founded by Raul Castro Ruz in Oriente, and Punta de Maisí, on the eastern end of the island, this is the first installment.)

Arroyos de Matua – Cuban President Raul Castro Ruz will leave his post next Thursday, which will be the starting shot to a generational change in the government that keeps the Cuban people expectant, which places high hopes in the transformation brought by the new president, but warns about the need to guarantee the integrity of the achievements of the Revolution that overthrew the government of Fulgencio Batista in 1959 .

Castro Ruz will leave power after 12 years in the maximum chair, because he fulfilled two terms officially and replaced his brother Fidel with illness for two years, before he formally handed over the presidency in 2008.

For the first time since Cuba established its socialist model after the armed triumph of the “Barbudos”, a Castro Ruz will not be in the presidency and neither will a member of the so-called historical generation that fought in the Sierra Maestra, which will mean a Substantial change in the management of the country, where most of the people, despite their disagreements and discomforts, have essentially a high level of respect for those who fought in the mountains and in the urban guerrilla.

La transición generacional, dictada por el paso natural de los años y por disposiciones recientes del Partido Comunista de Cuba (PCC) que ponen como tope los 70 años para ocupar altos cargos de dirección, encuentra a los cubanos nadando entre dos aguas: por una lado, esperanzados en que el cambio traiga evolución en el país y, por el otro, recelo de que los logros alcanzados hasta ahora por el modelo socialista se vengan abajo y la población acabe metida en una encrucijada.

Ese sentimiento dual se respira en el país de punta a punta, comenzando por el pueblo de Arroyos de Mantua, un asentamiento pesquero de 3,500 habitantes en la provincia de Pinar del Río que está considerado como el sitio poblado más occidental de Cuba, donde El Nuevo Día inició un extenso viaje que acaba en el otro extremo de la isla, en Punta de Maisí, a más de 1,000 kilómetros al este.

Aquí, a 315 kilómetros de La Habana y dando cara al Golfo de México, la población, en medio de sus calles polvorientas y una vida carente de lujos o excesos, está alerta sobre el proceso que viene y lo encara con pragmatismo.

“El próximo 19 de abril va a haber un movimiento que, como dijo el compañero Raúl Castro Ruz, dará la posibilidad de que asuman los principales cargos las nuevas generaciones. Casi siempre los cambios generan desarrollo. Hay figuras con el pensamiento y lasideas que nos legó el comandante en jefe, Fidel Castro. Los jóvenes están conscientes de la tarea que tienen y la única forma de seguir subsistiendo es defender la Revolución y apoyando a sus líderes”, dijo a El Nuevo Día el presidente del consejo popular de Arroyos de Mantua, Leonardo Castro Miranda, algo así como el alcalde del pueblo.

Con su tez morena y la gorra verde del equipo de béisbol de Pinar del Río fija en su cabeza, Castro Miranda es de los que piensan que los cambios son positivos, pero su éxito dependerá de la propia gente.

“Este pueblo se caracteriza por ser revolucionario y combatiente, y tiene muchas raíces históricas. En este momento está enfrascado en un proceso de transformaciones, siempre con la participación popular… En ese contexto, a una comunidad como esta lo que le hace falta primeramente es un cambio de mentalidad de las personas. Que las personas entiendan que la única forma de echar para adelante es trabajando”, afirmó.

Quienes recuerdan los años previos a la llegada de la Revolución, aseguran que esta zona tenía visos de arrabal, donde se vivía de la pesca, pero no había dispensario médico, escuela, carreteras o servicios básicos. Los residentes aseguran que, a pesar del aspecto modesto del pueblo, los avances han sido notables, aunque carezcan de fanfarria o estética, pues los residentes han podido educarse y formar carreras en medicina o el deporte.

“Esto era un puerto pesquero de poca monta, que lo administraban cuatro o cinco magnates que eran los que decidían la vida de los trabajadores. La vida de los trabajadores era precaria, mala, lo que pescaban no tenía valor, lo hacían en embarcaciones de velas de malas condiciones, con mala atención médica, pues había un solo doctor, y si no tenías dinero te morías”, explicó el exadministrador del puerto pesquero del pueblo, Graciliano García Escandel, quien está jubilado a sus 76 años.

“Recordar aquello es terrible, porque no había carretera, solo un camino real. Hoy esto parece una ciudad al lado de aquello, hay casas de porte, elegantes, los pescadores tienen otra vida, salen a pescar en otras condiciones que hasta parecen turistas… La juventud de hoy no conoce, porque no lo vivió”, agregó el hombre.

Esa añoranza por no perder lo conseguido es la única preocupación que persiste entre los ciudadanos, pues uno de los distintivos del sistema socialista cubano ha sido llevar a la población en las regiones más remotas del país servicios básicos de salud, educación, deporte, seguridad, alimentación e infraestructura, desde vial hasta eléctrica.

La pobreza es latente para los parámetros occidentales, sobre todo en pueblos alejados de los centros urbanos, como Arroyos de Mantua, donde algunos de los niños juegan fútbol descalzos y las calles carecen de pavimento en muchas zonas.

En lugares como estos, a pesar de los recursos limitados del Estado absoluto, no faltan una escuela, un dispensario, alimentación gratuita y entrenadores preparados para enseñar a los niños a jugar béisbol, baloncesto, voleibol o fútbol a la altura de los mejores en la región.

El deporte, por ejemplo, es la principal fuente de orgullo de Arroyos de Mantua. De aquí han salido integrantes de los equipos nacionales de fútbol y tenis de mesa, así como miembros de los combinados provinciales de béisbol.

“Para seguir desarrollándonos en esta esfera a esta comunidad le haría mucha falta seguir mejorando las instalaciones deportivas, tener acceso a más cantidad de implementos deportivos, y preparar el personal docente para que sea más efectivo el trabajo”, explicó la directora de deportes municipal, María Elena Riveiro Otero, nacida en Arroyos de Mantua.

“La muerte de Fidel fue un golpe duro para los cubanos, pero tenemos que seguir su legado y seguir adelante, avanzando, porque todas esas ideas que nos transmitió las tenemos que reflejar en resultados para la sociedad. A él le gustaba mucho el deporte y por eso en todas las actividades que realizamos está presente su pensamiento. Aunque pronto tampoco estará Raúl, él seguirá con nosotros y vamos a seguir igual, cada día mejorando. Las ideas ya las tenemos interiorizadas, ya sabemos lo que vamos a hacer y seremos mejores”, añadió la fogosa mujer, quien encabeza un sistema deportivo municipal que forma campeones con muy pocos recursos.

Esa idea de vivir sus días sin uno de los hermanos Castro Ruz en el poder suena extraña a muchos cubanos, ya que la costumbre provoca una adaptación, voluntaria o no, que se convierte en rutina.

El mero hecho de la ausencia física de Fidel y la salida de la presidencia de Raúl, aunque prevalezca como secretario general del PCC, representan un cambio mayúsculo en el panorama social cubano, para lo cual se preparan los ciudadanos de todo el país, incluidos los del rincón más occidental de la isla.

“Estoy convencido de que las cosas aquí van a cambiar, no sé si para bien o para mal, pero será un cambio de 180 grados. Vienen propuestas de trabajo, un mundo diferente, y hay que prepararse porque es una oportunidad”, expresó el pescador Oriván Zambrana Fiallo, de 37 años, quien hace hincapié en que el escenario de transformación no cambiará la esencia de pueblos como Arroyos de Mantua, donde la humildad vale más que la ostensión.

“The Mantuanos are humble people, that is the word to describe us. When I say humble is because it is the word that encompasses everything, because you can get to the house of any mantua and they will receive you with open arms, whether they have the best or the worst, but they offer it to you with their hearts in their hands “Said the young man from the sea.

And it is in this breeding ground, where the main ingredient is popular humility, that Raul Castro Ruz will hand over power on April 19 , a date that marks a milestone and to which Cubans await with a single certainty, that of change generational

Bill Clinton announces eight commitments to address ongoing regional hurricane recovery needs

1 Share

bill_clinton_cgiMIAMI – Former President Clinton formally launched the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery at the University of Miami on Tuesday, bringing together more than 350 leaders from government, business, and civil society to discuss and develop solutions that address immediate and long-term hurricane recovery needs facing the region.

Participants announced eight Commitments to Action – solutions that are new, specific, and measurable – focusing on a wide range of issues, including training for 5,000 mental health workers in Puerto Rico; deploying nurses to the US Virgin Islands to conduct vision, hearing, and dental screenings for 9,000 schoolchildren; a comprehensive reforestation and habitat program that will plant 750,000 trees; a new agency in Dominica providing funding for resiliency projects; and solarizing 12 primary health clinics in Puerto Rico.

“In the wake of the terrible hurricanes, the people of these islands have shown a remarkable resilience and a resolve to do long-term work and build back better,” said Clinton. “When I went to Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and Dominica, I was struck by both the determination and the positive attitude of the people there. We are here to do what we can to help these people build communities that are stronger, safer, more prosperous, and more resilient.”

“If we do not address the fundamental issues contributing to climate change, we’re going to see a greater intensity of disasters like Hurricane Maria and Irma,” said Roosevelt Skerrit, prime minister of Dominica. “If the world continues to fail to address climate change, we must not only build back better, but we must improve the national resiliency of our islands. This meeting of the Clinton Foundation is helping to ensure that our efforts to become the first climate resilient nation in the world are system-wide, integrated and coordinated.”

“Although these back-to-back storms were a great tragedy, there is now a tremendous opportunity to improve the future of the US Virgin Islands,” said Tom Secunda, founding partner of Bloomberg LP. “By bringing together such a wide range of people who share the common goal of finding innovative ways to help, The Clinton Foundation is helping us ensure we build back smarter, stronger and a more sustainable communities.”

“The Rockefeller Foundation is focused on bringing together public and private partners to help Puerto Rico recover and to support those who are working to build things back better than before,” said Dr Rajiv J. Shah, president of The Rockefeller Foundation. “Together, we can re-imagine a Puerto Rico that is more equitable, resilient to shocks and disasters, and provides opportunity for all of its residents in good times and bad.”

At the meeting, Clinton and leaders from business, government, and civil society announced eight Commitments to Action that address a wide range of recovery and resiliency issues facing the region.

Commitments to Action Announced on Tuesday

The government of Dominica has committed to launch a climate resiliency agency (CREAD), dedicating $600 million in funding to implement resiliency projects, with the goal of making Dominica the first climate resilient nation in the world.

The American Federation of Teachers has partnered with Airlink and the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands to bring nurses to conduct vision, hearing, and dental screenings for all 9,000 schoolchildren on the US Virgin Islands.

Afya Foundation has committed to addressing the urgent medical needs of the elder population in Puerto Rico, by shipping immediate medical supplies and equipment to Acción Social’s 22 Elder Care centers, while providing training and capacity building to Acción Social staff.

Para la Naturaleza (PLN) has committed to launch Habitat, a comprehensive reforestation and habitat restoration program in Puerto Rico that aims to plant 750,000 native and endemic trees that are more resilient to natural phenomena such as hurricanes, and provide assessment and maintenance of newly planted areas.

Americares has committed to address mental health challenges in Puerto Rico in the wake of Hurricane Maria by providing training for 5,000 health workers, emergency responders, and social service providers across the island.

International Medical Corps has committed to support primary healthcare for school-aged children in Puerto Rico by procuring an additional Mobile Medical unit for Med Centro, allowing them to reach an additional five elementary and middle schools with comprehensive preventive health screenings, and providing training and capacity building to all Med Centro staff.

Digicel has committed to repair or rebuild seven schools and 360 homes in Dominica that were damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Maria, while also training 100 community members in building techniques and provide community workshops on risk mitigation and disaster preparedness.

Direct Relief, the Hispanic Federation, The Solar Foundation, and New Energy PR have committed to install solar or solar + storage systems at 12 primary care clinics in Puerto Rico, meeting critical energy needs at each site.

Clinton also announced a Commitment to Action in development, issuing a challenge to members of the Action Network to pre-position relief supplies for the upcoming hurricane season. With estimates that every $1 spent on preparedness saves $4 in response and recovery spending, pre-positioning relief supplies, and establishing logistics and distribution channels, can help resources be deployed more efficiently in the event of a disaster. CGI is bringing together Action Network members who can lend their resources, materials, expertise, and support to a broad effort that already includes engagement from Operation Blessing, Airlink, Federal Surplus Company, Solight, J/P Haitian Relief Organization, Americares, and World Central Kitchen.

Marxist Rebels Killed Journalists and Driver, Ecuadors President Says
 

mikenova shared this story .

The group that killed the journalists, the Oliver Sinisterra Front, is one such faction, believed to be headed by a former FARC commander known as “El Guacho,” who leads several dozen rebels in the Colombian jungles.

According to El Comercio, the journalists and their driver were kidnapped in late March when they were reporting a story in the northern province of Esmeraldas, which borders one of Colombia’s most conflicted coca-producing regions.

The group were investigating the rising crime in the area, which was spilling into Ecuador and had included the bombing of a police station, in January, and other deadly attacks since.

On April 3, RCN Radio, one of the main networks in Colombia, released a so-called proof-of-life video of the three abducted people, in which they spoke of their captors’ demands, including the release of unidentified prisoners held in Ecuador, in exchange for their own lives.

In the 22-second clip, the three embraced each other and were chained together.

“Lenín Moreno, our lives are in your hands,” said Mr. Ortega.

On Wednesday, the Oliver Sinisterra Front issued a statement announcing the prisoners’ deaths. The group asserted that the two governments had conducted military operations near where the rebels were holding the hostages, “which produced the deaths of the journalists and the driver.”

The communiqué resulted in a confused response from both Colombia and Ecuador, which said they knew of no rescue operation. Ecuador’s government initially said there was no evidence they had been killed.

But on Thursday, photos began to circulate of what appeared to be the bodies of the hostages. They were facedown in the jungle, lifeless and still in chains.

Mr. Moreno, who had been at the Summit of the Americas, abruptly returned to Quito on Thursday evening. On Friday, he said the journalists were dead.

Increased shock by Ecuadorian journalists killed

By Associated Press 04/14/2018 | 10: 49 a.m.

QUITO.- The spirits of Latin America were shaken this afternoon, when the death of three Ecuadorian journalists kidnapped by dissidents of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) was confirmed.

Shortly after President Lenin Moreno reported on the deaths of these members of the El Comercio newspaper team, who were initially kidnapped on the border with Colombia, international criticism did not wait. In the framework of the start of the Summit of the Americas, which has just started in Lima, governments and organizations rejected the facts and demanded that the situation not go unpunished.

Later, the president of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, reported from Peru that the International Red Cross had been authorized to search for the bodies. In his statement I have added that he does not know “the details of where this heinous crime was carried out.”

The captors of the journalist Javier Ortega, 32 years old; the photographer Paúl Rivas, 45, and the driver Efraín Segarra, 60, sued swap for three prisoners and the breaking of an anti-drug agreement between both countries. In reporting on his death, the Ecuadorian president said: “Beyond the efforts, we have confirmed that these criminals would seem to never have the will to deliver them safe and sound … the only thing they have wanted is to buy time. ”

Moreno offered a reward of $ 100,000 for information that leads to the capture of alias “Guacho”, leader of the dissident group of the FARC that would have taken the communicators captive.

Ecuador y Colombia lanzaron una ofensiva militar con equipos de élite en la región fronteriza donde los comunicadores habían sido secuestrados el 26 de marzo cuando habían llegado a la zona fronteriza para obtener información periodística.

Tras darse a conocer las muertes, Santos dispuso el viaje a Ecuador del ministro de Defensa, Luis Carlos Villegas; del comandante general de las Fuerzas Armadas, general Alberto Mejía, y del director de la policía, general Jorge Nieto, entre otros para coordinar acciones.

Por la tarde, el régimen decretó duelo nacional del 13 al 16 de abril en honor de los fallecidos, mientras la delegación de la guerrilla colombiana del Ejército de Liberación Nacional (ELN) para los diálogos de paz con el gobierno de Colombia en Quito, expresó en un comunicado su solidaridad a Ecuador “frente a la agresión de grupos narcotraficantes que han asesinado a los dos periodistas y su conductor”. Identificó a los agresores como “bandas narco-paramilitares” dedicadas al negocio del narcotráfico “y no a la lucha revolucionaria, así algunos de sus integrantes hayan pertenecido en el pasado a las FARC”.

Mónica Mendoza, macro editora de El Comercio, dijo a la AP que “estamos desechos, hay gente que ha tenido que ir al dispensario médico por tranquilizantes, es muy duro, alternamos el trabajo con oraciones, minutos de silencio, canciones en honor de nuestros compañeros caídos”.

Describió a Javier, su colega fallecido, como “un chico encantador, alegre, muy inteligente y dispuesto a todo, toda la redacción está muy afectada”.

Poco después, la Sociedad Interamericana de Prensa (SIP) dijo en un comunicado que “no solo estos tres colegas sino también los pueblos de Ecuador y Colombia, y el periodismo de toda América Latina, han sido ultrajados por este tipo de crimen inhumano y atroz que creíamos desaparecido de la región”.

El documento añadió que “en esta hora de luto y dolor, exigimos Justicia y Protección, así como el fin de la Impunidad, en nombre de los miles de periodistas que a diario arriesgan sus vidas para mantener al público informado”.

Cientos de ecuatorianos recibieron en medio de gritos y llanto la noticia de la muerte mientras estaban concentrados frente al palacio de gobierno en el centro de Quito.

Decenas de periodistas de varios países de la región guardaron un minuto de silencio en la sede de la Cumbre de las Américas por la muerte de sus colegas, mientras mujeres y hombres dejaron sus cámaras, micrófonos y libretas de apuntes sobre las mesas de una sala de redacción dentro del centro de convenciones de la cita regional en Lima.

Analyst Grace Jaramillo, from Queen’s University in Kinston, Canada, explained to the AP that Ecuador is facing this situation because “it did not manage to articulate an intelligence system focused on international organized crime”, while noting that the country was not prepared “for violence on the border with Colombia.”

He added that to handle issues such as violence and irregular armed groups with a presence on the border “you must have an extraordinary intelligence service and share intelligence with other stronger countries on the continent … and Ecuador does not have”.

Latin American countries condemn US attacks on Syria

The reactions of some Latin American countries were immediate after the bombing of the USA, France and the United Kingdom against Syria. The governments of Cuba, Venezuela and Bolivia have expressed strong condemnation of the military action of Washington and its allies.

https://actualidad.rt.com/actualidad/268499-condenas-silencio-gobierno-latinoamerica-ataque-siria

The president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, has called the attack “deranged” and has accused those responsible for having invented “excuses” to carry it out.

Evo Morales Ayma

@evoespueblo

Con la fuerza de la dignidad, la defensa de la paz, de los pueblos del mundo, condenamos enérgicamente el ataque desquiciado de Trump contra el hermano pueblo de Siria. Ayer, inventaron irreales armas de destrucción masiva para invadir Irak, hoy lanzan misiles con excusa parecida

For its part, the Government of Cuba has expressed “its strongest condemnation” for the attack, carried out by those Western countries “using as a pretext” the alleged chemical attack in the Syrian city of Duma.

“This unilateral action, outside the UN Security Council, constitutes a flagrant violation of the principles of International Law and the Charter of that organization and constitutes an outrage against a sovereign State, which exacerbates the conflict in the country and in the region “, highlights the Cuban Foreign Ministry.

In the same way, Diosdado Cabello, first vice president of the government party in Venezuela, described as “unbalanced” and “unscrupulous criminals” those who attempt against world security.

Diosdado Cabello R@dcabellor

Es alarmante que la seguridad del mundo dependa de un grupo de desequilibrados, incapaces de percibir las consecuencias de sus actos. Crimínales sin escrúpulos que se creen los dueños del universo, el imperialismo no va a desaparecer solo, debemos acabarlo los Pueblos Unidos!!

For his part, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Brazil, Aloysio Nunes, has defended the dialogue as a way to solve the Syrian problem.

“Brazil supports an investigation conducted by the OPCW (Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons) to find out responsibility for the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria. There is no way out for the torment of the Syrian people that is not for negotiation, and in respect to international law, “said the diplomat, according to Coluna do Estadão.

At the time of this publication, no other Latin American State has spoken officially or by social networks regarding the bombing. Not so Spain, which considers military intervention as “legitimate and proportionate”, describing as “atrocity” the alleged chemical attack that has not been confirmed.

🔴@marianorajoy explica la posición del Gobierno de España sobre los acontecimientos producidos en Siria.

On April 14, the United States, the United Kingdom and France launched more than 100 air-to-surface missiles against targets in Syria for the alleged chemical attack that Syrian government troops would have perpetrated in the Syrian city of Duma (Guta Oriental) last April 7

US President Donald Trump announced his decision to attack Syrian territory on April 13, without authorization from his country’s Congress or the approval of the United Nations Security Council.

Damascus has denounced that the attack they have perpetrated against their country was aimed at preventing the work of the OPCW experts.

On April 13, the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, said that Moscow has “irrefutable data” that this alleged offensive with chemical weapons was “a new staging.”

Russia’s ambassador to the UN, Vasili Nebenzia, has already pointed out before the UN Security Council that there are no soil tests that reveal the use of sarin or chlorine and that no people were treated for chemical poisoning in Syrian hospitals.

FEMA allocates $ 135 million for the restoration of bridges and roads

The resident commissioner, Jenniffer González Colón, announced the first allocation of category C of FEMA Public Assistance funds of $ 135 million for the Department of Transportation and Public Works.

These funds are for the damage caused by Hurricane Maria to bridges and roads. Through FEMA, the federal government would assume 90 percent of the costs, contributing 135 million dollars of the 150 million dollars that the works would cost, González Colón explained in written statements.

He explained that Category C of FEMA Public Assistance funds are to invest in roads and bridges. The paving of roads, gravel and dirt are eligible to be funded with these funds for permanent repair or replacement, unless they are roads considered federal aid that would have the support of the Federal Highway Administration or FHWA for its acronym in English.

Eligible work also includes the repair of surfaces, bases, ditches, culverts, low bridges and other features, such as railings. Repairs necessary as a result of normal deterioration, such as cracking or rotten wood, are considered pre-disaster damage and are not eligible. Eligible work for bridges includes decks and pavements, springs, beams, abutments, slope protection and approaches.

FEMA also assigned $ 12,304,614.36 to the National Guard of Puerto Rico under Category B of Public Assistance funds. These funds are for work done before, during and after Hurricane Maria to save lives, protect public health and safety, and prevent damage to public and private property.

The World News and Times from mikenova (26 sites): Mike Nova’s Shared NewsLinks: Puerto Rico 6 months later: Restaurants stay packed

mikenova shared this story .

At night, in the metropolitan area near the San Jan airport, it’s clear to see a tale of two Puerto Ricos.

  • Some San Juan businesses have shuttered in wake of Maria
  • Restaurants around international airport report brisk business
  • Social media users adopted hashtag #puertoricoselevanta

Six months after Hurricane Maria, many in the US territory are still trying to find work. Businesses have left, and tourism has taken a hit.

“Small business owners probably left, because it happens to people who used to work in Isla Verde, like, ‘Oh I’m looking for a job because my boss closed, I went to the United States,'” said Saline Figueroa, a bartender and manager at 1950 restaurant in Isla Verde.

A quick tour of the neighborhood reveals a lot of residential buildings and businesses, some still boarded up.

But a short distance away, in the neighborhood of El Condado, it’s a different story.

Restaurants such as Ropa Vieja and locally-owned 1950 restuarant are packed.

“Business has been really good,” Figueroa said. “After the hurricane, we opened right away, like two days … and everybody that is living in the county was eating here.”

And more tourists are slowly starting to come back, like Dwala Sutton, visiting from Raleigh, NC

“You know, they’re rebuilding, and at the same time, the service at the hotel is seamless,” Sutton said. “You would not know. So the tourism I think it’s definitely coming back, and it’s been a pleasure to be here. I’ve been very relaxed, “she said.

“There has been a hashtag, #puertoricoselevanta,” Figueroa said. “Puerto Rico has been doing that, standing up after the hurricane.”

Residents want the world to know that the island is open for business.

Russia strongly condemns the attack on Syria, said the Russian ambassador to the UN, Vasili Nebenzia, before the Security Council, which is holding the fifth meeting on the Syrian issue of the week.

For its part, the Permanent Representative of China to the UN, Ma Zhaoxu, has assured that China has always defended the peaceful settlement of disputes.

Any unilateral action violates the principles of the UN Charter and international law, stressed the Chinese diplomat, who has also called for refraining from actions that could lead to a further escalation of tension.

The Russian ambassador to the USA He assured that there will be consequences for the military attack unleashed against the Syrian State by the United States, the United Kingdom and France.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has pointed out that his country condemns with the utmost seriousness the attack on Syria and that with its actions, the US It further aggravates the humanitarian catastrophe in Syria, affects the civilian population, and in fact consents to the terrorists who have been tormenting the Syrian people for seven years.
