UNDP: Venezuela among countries with high human development index
Chile and Argentina were the only two Latin American countries in the group with "very high" human development index in 2011
Chile (44) and Argentina (45) were the only two Latin American countries included in the list of "very high" human development index in 2011, according to the Human Development Report's annual rankings of national achievement in health, education and income, released Wednesday by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
According to the report, Norway leads the world in the 2011 Human Development Index (HDI) with an index of 0.943.
The UNDP segment devoted to countries with "high" human development index includes Uruguay (0.783), Cuba (0.776), México (0.770), Panamá (0.768), Costa Rica (0.744), Venezuela (0.735), Peru (0.725), Ecuador (0,720), Brazil (0.718), Colombia (0.710) and Belize (0.699).
Comparative data in the last five years (2006-2011) show that Cuba (+10) and Venezuela and Tanzania (+7) are the countries that have moved up higher in the HDI rank, which takes into account income, life expectancy and education level in each country, Efe pointed out.
Alarmed because of the emotional breakdown suffered by his ally and his destiny; Fidel Castro requested asylum for deceased Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in Madrid back on April 11, 2002. "The story had been much darker and more entangled than what some people's imagination has wanted to believe in and disclose," former Spain's President, José María Aznar, upholds in his autograph book published by late 2013.
