El Banco Mundial (BM) está dispuesto a otorgar a México hasta 3,000 millones de dólares en financiamiento para 2009, anunció el director de la institución para México y Colombia, Axel Van Trotsenburg.

En rueda de prensa conjunta con funcionarios de la Secretaría de Hacienda y el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo, destacó que la cifra supera los 2,400 millones de dólares que en total prestará este año al país, de los cuales 400 millones canalizará la próxima semana.

“El Banco Mundial tiene una relación privilegiada con México en el último año y medio”, situación que permite al organismo multilateral definir su relación con países medios.

Por su parte, el titular de la Unidad de Asuntos Hacendarios Internacionales de la Secretaria de Hacienda, Ricardo Ochoa, informó que el Congreso autorizó para 2009 un endeudamiento externo neto por 5,000 millones de dólares.

Esos recursos se utilizaran para el desarrollo de infraestructura, vivienda, medio ambiente y programas sociales, precisó.

Ochoa recordó que el nivel de endeudamiento externo aprobado para el presente año fue de 1,500 millones de dólares.

A NATIONAL company is expanding its training facilities and courses in Mandela Bay in a move to boost skills across a wide spectrum, from basic literacy to the building industry and management development.

Training Force branch manager Jaco van Rooyen said the operation – part of the major Workforce labour brokering and training group – was expanding to meet a forecast increased demand from various types of industries.

“Despite present conditions, we believe the Eastern Cape region will continue to grow at a swift rate and that there will be a high demand for training,” said Van Rooyen.

“This is the sixth permanent training facility we have set up in major centres throughout the country, and we also have two smaller operations,” he added.

Training would include on-site courses and training sessions as well as centralised training at the company‘s new premises in Walmer, Port Elizabeth.

Areas of speciality included transport, construction, management and adult basic education.
