The Economic Situation Report at the end of the first quarter of 2011 states: Economic growth is still slow and fragile.
The global economic recovery continues, although there are still some weaknesses in the international financial condition. A 4.4% expansion is projected for 2011. However, this recovery is uneven across countries: while the developed economies are could reach 2.5% growth, in emerging and developing countries the expansion could be 6%.
Corn shortage is adding to the already existing shortage of bean. Escalating international prices are threatening millions of poor Central Americans.
January global data shows that food prices continue to rise and are already surpassing the 2008 prices.
And while the Central American economies are benefiting in part by the increase, for example by increasing revenues from coffee and sugar exports, they have not secured supply of basic traditional consumer products such as wheat, corn and beans; the basic foods of poor population. The already high prices are worsened by poor harvests due to bad weather.
The Universidad de San Carlos de Guatemala (USAC, University of San Carlos of Guatemala) was one of the earliest universities to be founded in the Americas. It was decreed a university on January 31, 1676 by royal command of King Charles II of Spain. It had previously been known as the Escuela de Santo Tomás (School of Saint Thomas), founded in 1562 by the priest Francisco Marroquín. The University finally gained international acceptance by Official Decree from Pope Innocent XI, on June 18, 1687.
