OPINION: Seeking leaders as investment plummets

 
488Views 17Comments Posted 13/05/2021

Foreign direct investment plummeted last year. In this area, Panama was only able to raise just under $600 million (a drop of more than 85%), so it will be a huge challenge to attract foreign investors. The National Competitiveness Center advises, to face the challenge, promote the country, but it also recommends more competitiveness and better prepare our human resources, and strengthen the country in terms of transparency, institutionality, ethics and simplification and digitization of procedures. For years, the country has lagged behind in these matters. Our education goes from bad to worse, the bureaucratic procedures are so cumbersome, that they lend themselves to bribery, as, indeed, occurs in municipalities and government entities. Accountability and transparency are undoubtedly our greatest institutional weaknesses, with the aggravating circumstance that justice is highly corrupt. Our economy is seriously affected by the restrictions to combat the pandemic. Recovering will not be easy if, in addition, we have those heavyweights that prevent it. Everything indicates that before recovering economically, we will have to improve ourselves as a country. And this includes, particularly, our leaders. – LA PRENSA, May 13.

I will ignore the rantings of Brian and the righteous outrage his Putin-dupe personality evokes from other readers. To the opinion piece I direct the following: We need the English language, spoken and written, to be one of the foundations of education in Panamá. The piece touches on improving human capital or whatever the catchphrase, but bottom line up front is Panamá must prioritize English proficiency to evolve from 3rd World status.

FACTS ARE TO BE LEGALLY A VACCINE IT MUST MEET TWO CONDITIONS NONE OF THE COVID KILL SHOTS ARE ABLE TO DO. THOSE ARE LAW AND FACTS! As I have said these KILL SHOTS are not legal vaccines as they must do two things #1) stop the spread of the disease and #2) stop the recipient from getting the disease. Think all of us who got polio vaccines we can be around polio without risk. Those getting KILL SHOTS are not protected and worse they are at severe risk of death as their immune systems have been compromised severely and its why people are now lying in ICU's and dying now after receiving both KILL SHOTS! I provided doctors links and scientific links this entire past year that backed up everything now happening but CovidSCUM said there was no death, no risk and the doctors and scientists were Russia disinformation agents when in fact the CovidSCUM were the liars and spreaders of propaganda.

Captain once again is incorrect the term is breakthrough cases, which he has zero knowledge of as he relies upon $10 fact checkers paid $1.5 Billion from the vaccine industry lobby. There are millions across the world and hospital beds are getting clogged with the those "fully vaccinated" they are dying. Here CDC admitting it even though they do not count all the cases. UPDATE: CDC says just 5,800 people who were fully vaccinated against COVID got infected: CNN Some became seriously ill and 74 people died The full scope of these breakthrough cases is just coming to light. globally recently as the health agencies are forced to admit the KILL SHOTS are not working. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/cdc-identifies-5800-people-who-were-fully-vaccinated-against-covid-but-still-got-infected-cnn-2021-04-15

Brian you are yet again sending out misleading information . A simple google easily points out that you can still get Covid after vaccination as it’s not 100% effective against catching it . In fact the Jansen vaccine was 72% effective on trials but 85% against serious disease. None of the players are ill and in fact most of them are asymptomatic. It’s vitally important that like the annual flu shot (which incidentally I had today and is now available free in Panama) these vaccines are developed to prevent serious illness, hospitalisation and death . This they all continue to do NONE of them guarantee against catching Covid Mind you most people by now fully understand that but GRU goons like Brian continue to spread Russian propaganda in order to stir the shit . Doesn’t work Avakian

For those wondering why Brian aka Alexandre Avakian , agent of the GRU at local Embassy continues his non sequitur ranting about the Reich ( Brian at least spell it right ) be aware that the Russians don’t have a great love of the Germans during that period and continue to beat the drum on the conflict Hence Brian shows his true colours as a dissemination agent fed by GRU assets on a daily basis . There is little if any connection between the two subjects but Agents are required anyway to try and link them . As one who lived through WW2 and was bombed out of London this “scum” is proud to say he knows a bit more about the period than probably Brian who in fact May not have been born then ?

It is truly astounding, isn't it, Brian. People are STILL falling for this plandemic false flag takedown, all planned for decades with multiple test runs and incessant vaxx indoctrination to soften the target. If the scientists and doctors who have been speaking out about the long term dangers of this gene therapy are right, then I suppose we should just sit back and allow the process of unnatural selection to take its course. What's sad is that the psychopaths running this psyop, and who aren't getting the injections, will survive, and millions of well meaning but confused regular folks will be culled.

Brian, aka GRU stooge Avakian, fails to note as usual when he posts his rubbish that Fuellmich had his petition thrown out and it was NOT admitted at the Canadian courts as posted by Avakian about a week ago. In fact the Court stresses that information circulating on social media is false (GRU misinformation programmes) . Meanwhile USA thanks to a successful vaccination programme has lifted its mask advisory for those fully vaccinated. This will really piss off Brian aka Avakian as he is not getting vaccinated and will thus be required to continue wearing one (if they ever let him in US which is doubtful) . Note complete silence continues from Russian agent Avakian as he is required to continue toeing the party line over that disaster . Keep quiet as they are a “friendly” Russian ally .

COVID Fraud – Lawyers & Medical Experts start legal proceedings against W.H.O and World Leaders for ‘Crimes against Humanity’ A team of over 1,000 lawyers and over 10,000 medical experts led by Dr. Reiner Fuellmich have begun legal proceedings against the CDC, WHO & the Davos Group for crimes against humanity. https://dailyexpose.co.uk/2021/05/07/covid-fraud-lawyers-medical-experts-start-legal-proceedings-against-w-h-o-and-world-leaders-for-crimes-against-humanity/ | Remember the covidSCUM are liars and spread propaganda to harm humanity. | This is very simple you are for humanity or against it the covidSCUMbags have made it very clear they are the enemy of humanity | Realize the PURE EVIL these covidEVIL-FREAKS endorse such as harleyrider, captain, observer, sral, ajd and the rest of this evil group of scum so that you know the evil they represent, support, and align themselves with the 4th Reicht! You are either for humanity at this point or against humanity and these covidSCUM are the enemy of humanity. They have shown this over and over as those that denied the last holocaust. Remember these evil scumbags are the same colluders who supported Nazis...it took evil individuals to spread their lies, deception, fraud and propaganda to allow mass murders and genocide! These guilty extremely evil covidSCUM raise their right hand proudly to salute and support the 4th Reicht obediently!

https://youtu.be/NS8czPfg3lY Here is a real leader with success standing up for the people not following the globalist criminal cabal and not a criminal politician destroying the people as most covidSCUMbags have done! They are walling up across the world as they know people are coming for them. Real leaders don't fear their people only criminals do!

There will be no investment so long as the hard left PRD are in power. We have been seeing foreign flight from Panama for over a year now. The abuses of locking people inside, husbands and wives separated and not allowed out of the house together, marching mask offenders through the streets with public shaming, police beating and arresting violators, everybody being encouraged to call and snitch on their neighbor and on and on. Panama has been exposed as a place only a leftist would want to live. Normal people have already left and the rest are trying to sell and get out or planning a better life in country like Uruguay where at least you have water and electric everyday.
