Houston Gateway to the Americas

The Colombia Texas Chamber of Commerce, the U.S.-Panama Business Council, the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Houston Partnership, the University of Houston, and Houston First have joined forces to organize the first hemispheric Conference & Expo in Houston titled “Houston: Gateway to the Americas”, to be held at the The Westin Houston, Memorial City on October 24-26, 2016.

Why Houston?

Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States and the fifth largest metropolitan region. It is recognized as the United States’ epicenter of Energy Center and its Texas Medical Center is unparalleled in the world. The Houston Ship Channel, hosting the Port of Houston, is the largest port in the United States in international tonnage and its airport system is the top ten in the nation and #3 in flights to the Americas.

Houston’s leadership position will be strengthened with the expansion of the Panama Canal, scheduled to the finalized in the first half of 2016. The expansion will position Houston as the principal port of Central USA, with large implications for the trade and investment. The Houston port is the presently deepening its container port to accommodate post-Panamax ships while at the same time installing new container cranes.

The conference will serve to strengthen the “connection” between Houston and the Americas, enhancing its position as the true gateway. It will undoubtedly expand on existing trade and lead to additional transfer of technology, education, tourism and other areas.

Brazil’s economy has hit a rough patch: It officially entered a recession in August 2014, after two consecutive quarters of falling outputs. While many analyst were predicting growth of 3 percent in 2015 a year ago, those estimates have been scaled back.

                Yet the country’s unemployment rate has decrease to near record lows, from more than 13 percent in 2003 to around 5 percent in 2014. To set themselves apart, “project managers in Brazil should continuously invest in training, gain experience and develop their soft skills,” says Joao Gama Neto, PMI-ACP, PMP professor if project management, INPG Business School Sao Paulo, Brazil.

                Despite the current slowdown, the Brazilian government sees smoother sailing ahead, with the economy bolstered by slowing inflation and credit expansion, plus a recovery in mining and oil output. IT, financial services expansion, telecommunications, construction and the government are among the largest users of project management, Mr. Gama says

                “I believe that 2015 will be better than 2014, and we will have an increase in job opportunities in the second half,” he says.

Mural of the Month

Jorge RodriguezGerada is a Cuban-American artist whose large-scale works in charcoal are unique in terms of both scale and medium. Having left his mark on the city some years ago when he painted a tribute to his recently deceased father-in-law in Colegiales, Rodriguez-Gerada was back in Buenos Aires at the end of this summer to create a stunning and moving mural in Monserrat.

The wall, which is the backdrop to a car park, bears the face of a young boy. This is “David”, an 11-year-old student in the Isauro Arancibia Educational Centre in neighbouring San Telmo, which provides a space for 200 homeless children and teenagers to attend school. The centre faces potential demolition to make way for the Metrobus and the mural was painted to highlight its plight.

The wall forms part of ‘Identity’, a series of hyper-realistic portraits of anonymous locals that the artist began in 2002. The intention is to elevate these unknown residents to the status of social icons, and to challenge the idea of what is presented to the public via large format works, usually via advertising. The project was realised in conjunction with ResNonVerba.
