Ex voluntario del cuerpo de Paz en Paraguay

IPParaguay, Peter Tase


La única cosa que sale en el exterior es el EPP, no se habla de los éxitos

Asunción, IP Paraguay.- Fuera de sus fronteras no se conocen los grandes potenciales que tiene el Paraguay y la única cosa que sale en el exterior es el EPP (Ejército del Pueblo Paraguayo), según el investigador Peter Tase, del Consejo sobre Asuntos Hemisféricos en Estados Unidos, que hará un reporte inédito sobre los progresos en el país en los últimos cuatro años.
Tase, quien fue voluntario del Cuerpo de Paz en una comunidad al sur de Paraguay, lamentó que por lo único que el país sea conocido en el exterior sea el grupo autodenominado EPP, que ha perpetrado ataques a instituciones estatales en el norte del país.
“Es un grupo muy pequeño, pero que sin embargo toma la atención. Eso daña la imagen”, señaló el investigador que realizará durante los próximos meses el primer informe completo, en inglés y español, sobre el progreso multidimensional del Paraguay durante los últimos cuatro años.

Foro de Milwaukee: Gobierno, ausente

Desde este espacio estamos sosteniendo que el Paraguay necesita tener presencia en todos los escenarios en los que sea posible exponer la actualidad económica, política, institucional y social del país. Argumentábamos que una construcción de ese tamaño implica una inversión proporcional en un campo que, como las relaciones públicas y la difusión, insumen muchos recursos.

En pocas palabras: es una materia cara. De ahí que cobren extraordinaria importancia y valor eventos que, organizados por terceros, ofrezcan al Paraguay estrados de gran importancia. Un ejemplo es el Foro Económico de Milwaukee, Estados Unidos, previsto para el 11 de setiembre próximo con una agenda compuesta por dos temas dominantes: la producción agropecuaria y la conexión del Paraguay con todos los mercados del mundo. Anfitriona, la Universidad de Wisconsin
