Times of change in Latin America

Latin America’s importance cannot be undermined

Times of change in Latin America  

February 24, 2015: The first cargo train successfully traveled from Spain to China. Never before had a train crossed the notable European, Persian, Arabian, Indian, and Chinese realms at once.  

December 16, 2016: The VIII reunion of Chilean and Argentine ministers highlighted the importance of fostering free trade dialogues within MERCOSUR and the Pacific Alliance. Said pursuit would allow the full enjoyment of the Pan-American Highway system, which connects the members from both economic alliances. The highway covers 99.4% of the land between Monterrey, Mexico and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

March 20, 2017: A high ranking official from the Boston Public Schools’ Office of Opportunity and Achievement Gaps (BPSOOAG) announced a knowledgeable new policy: 600 classrooms in Boston, United States, were to change their world map. The updated “Gall-Peter’s projection” portrays area unerringly and includes 100 years of forthcoming climate change. Siberia blossomed while the Amazon held a noticeable tone contrast. 

Allow a general agreement

We all share the same future and we all eat. By 2100, there will be 11.2 billion people in a world leaving technology as the only feasible solution to outweigh the imbalance. This information was retrieved from the California Davis University and Arizona State University alongside the United Nations.

The Pacific Alliance & Mercosur block own 33% of the global supply of fresh water, 16% of the world’s corn and meat, 52% of the global production of soy as well as 50% of the world’s lithium reserves. Latin American richness remains undisclosed due to political disputes. It’s a burdensome liability for just 9% of the global population.

A general truth

The United States and Canada have joined efforts to connect Americas in what is called the Pan-American Highway (North America). The 12,000-kilometer highway connecting Whitehorse, Canada, and Monterrey, Mexico through America’s 48,000-kilometer spinal cord. The all-American highway is 45.8% wider than the Yixin’ou Line while the Latin American share of it is 13% heftier than its Eurasian counterpart alone.

In a sense, the United State’s 4-8 years recovery by the hands of Donald Trump is a prudential time to make America a superpower like never before. The nationalist United States of America nudges South America towards a cooperative behavior while it reloads its economic leverage amid the ongoing recovery cycle of the global finances.

The Pan-American Highway is not continuous because the governments of Panama and Colombia are not willing to give up the 106 kilometers that compromise the Darién Gap, hosting the largest national park in the region and whose removal poses an environmental threat to the planet.
