Venezuela among the countries with lower competitiveness index
Due to macroeconomic instability and institutional troubles
Chile is the leader of competitiveness among 18 Latin American countries, based on the Competitiveness Index established in October 2012 by the ADEN Competitiveness Institute. The information was disclosed by the higher studies institution based in Argentina, Efe quoted.
ADEN assesses 10 items to ascertain the index: met basic needs, institutional issues, infrastructure, macroeconomic stability, health, education, people expectation, market competition, efficient labor relations and technology access, the institution listed in a press release.
Venezuela and Bolivia appear at the bottom of the ranking, "with different economic and social realities, yet with common problems of macroeconomic instability and institutional mishaps." Both countries have remained in these positions from the outset of the estimates.
They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
