Honduran president: inherited crisis is economic and social

Honduras, presidenta, crisis, heredada, social, económica
Tegucigalpa, Apr 14 (Prensa Latina) Honduran President Xiomara Castro said that the crisis inherited from previous governments is economic and social.

The president’s statements came after a meeting with members of the transport sector, who staged a nationwide strike last week to demand higher salaries, among other issues.

During the meeting, the parties agreed to increase fares for the intercity buses, as well as approving a fourth passenger in taxis in major cities such as the capital.

At the meeting with the unionists, Castro explained that the urban bus rates will not change, as the Honduran Government will maintain the subsidy.

Regarding intercity prices, the head of State instructed the Honduran Institute of Land Transportation to proceed immediately to review the new rates for distances over 200 kilometers.

The issue has had repercussions on social networks, with several users supporting the president’s decision, while others are campaigning against.
