The new Permanent Representative of Bolivia to the United Nations, Diego Pary Rodríguez, paid a courtesy call on UN Secretary-General António Guterres today. He earlier presented his credentials to the Secretariat on 11 December. (See Press Release BIO/5355.)

Prior to his latest appointment, Mr. Rodríguez held numerous positions within his country’s Government, including Minister for Foreign Affairs (2018‑2019), Ambassador to the Organization of American States (2011‑2018), Vice‑Minister of Higher Education (2008‑2011) and Advisor to the Constituent Assembly (2006‑2007).

Mr. Rodríguez holds a bachelor’s degree in education from the Universidad Mayor, Real and Pontificia de San Francisco Xavier de Chuquisaca and a master’s degree in international trade negotiations from the University of Barcelona and Simón Bolívar Andean University. He also completed expert studies in indigenous people, human rights, public administration, and International Cooperation at the Carlos III University of Madrid.

Mr. Rodríguez was born on 31 May 1978 in the Quechua community of Chajnacaya, located in José Marfa Linares Province of the Department of Potosí.

1. You know Judi Lynn?

You do great work posting/informing this community on what's happening in Central/South America.

I would love to see a composite chart on each country that gives green/yellow/red indicators for key social/economic metrics. Is there such a place that monitors and documents, over time?

2. I recall having seen them from 1999 onward, when I started reading on LatAm & Caribbean history,etc.

I'm certain I've seen great charts from the United Nations, UNESCO, World Bank, etc., but for a start this site looks terrific if I'm on the right wave-length:

You might take a quick scan of it, and I can continue to look after that.

3. I forgot to mention I learned a long time ago when sources describe interpreting salaries

by day, week, month, year in Latin American countries, or Caribbean countries, they merely translate what the face value is of the currency in $'s, which is completely misleading, because it totally leaves out what the purchasing power is of their currency, and in countries which are socialized, or partially socialized, housing, medical treatment, utilities, education, etc. can be free to natural citizens, and they aren't forced to pay for them.

That has always been a big dirty trick played by propagandists trying to degrade other systems in countries with leaders who don't put Washington above the interests of their own people.

Purchasing power, and expenses. Thank you.

5. Really! I just looked for photos just to grasp its size. It looks really large....





Almost everything I've read about Colombia for a long time makes it sound like a dangerous place to live.

Sorry to hear she has been aware of some rough events in that city. I hear there are a lot of easy assassinations, for sure, by people on motorcycles.

I hope you are implying she got out on time to avoid personal tragedy. Yikes.

I started reading comments from a Colombian who moved to Miami around 1998, at the old CNN message board system, which was fascinating. He couldn't take it any longer, came from Barranquilla, I believe. I had no idea how violent the country was until I read his comments over some years in discussions with other people, many of them from Latin America. It was horrifying. Very rough people in the underworld there!

Hope she will find life much gentler here (as long as she doesn't get on the list of any Q-Anon people) .
