President of Colombia calls for strengthening the popular economy

Bogota, Mar 29 (Prensa Latina) The President of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, called to strengthen micro, small and medium enterprises belonging to the popular economy, the government website highlights.

During the presentation of the first Zasca Reindustrialization Center at the Juan Bosco Obrero institution in Ciudad Bolivar, the Head of State urged to forge the first network of youth Zascas dedicated to software and programming engineering to later link that to the popular economy throughout the localities.

He explained that Zasca, in the Muisca language, means work, for which he reiterated that wealth is born from work, but work in the 21st century does not consist of extending working hours but intensifying it, based on knowledge and technology.

The head of State in his speech noted that there is already an infrastructure in Bogota, which is even cutting-edge, where young people can acquire knowledge to integrate popular economy, which could result in ‘a virtuous process of enrichment of the community’.

Petro proposed to the young people of that community to get closer to new technologies, to the realization of audiovisuals and software production, for that connectivity is vital in Ciudad Bolivar, because that can radiate completely, productivity exploits and, therefore, wealth growing.

He also suggested the need to help the Salesian community to change these roof tiles for solar panels.

We did not know much about this in the Mayor’s Office, but the cost decreases and sells with the brand ‘made with clean energy.

President Petro also referred to the need of humanizing labor in Colombia, and responding to the remarks of critics of the labor reform, he assured that “popular economy does not become poorer if the worker earns more salary and works less in the day.
