Hospital de Maipú abriría a comienzos de 2014

99% de avance:

Un 99% y 98% de avance tienen las obras gruesas de los nuevos hospitales de Maipú y La Florida, respectivamente, según el MOP. En el primer caso, el 65% fue recepcionado y está siendo equipado. Eso implica que, tras la recepción final, podría iniciar la marcha blanca en octubre y abrir totalmente el primer trimestre de 2014.

Ambos recintos fueron pensados para funcionar bajo un nuevo modelo de gestión, como hospitales clínicos. Pero como la ley que los crea está entrampada en el Congreso, Salud no descarta que Maipú funcione como hospital autogestionado hasta que se apruebe la ley o un veto presidencial.

  • Production of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) will not begin at Brazil's Petroquímica Suape (PQS) petrochemical complex until the end of the current quarter, according to a report from ICIS News. Federal energy major Petrobras (NYSE:PBR) has invested around US$5bn in the project, located in the northeastern state of Pernambuco. Petroquimíca Suape has capacity to produce 700,000t/y of purified terephthalic acid (PTA), which is the main raw material in the production of PET resin and polyester. Citing a Petroquimíca company spokesman, ICIS said that because of mechanical difficulties, PET production, due to start in early 2014, will now get underway at the end of the current quarter. Petroquímica will have annual production capacity for PET of 450,000t/y, as well as 240,000t/y of polyester fibers, made up of 86,000t/y of partially oriented yarn (POY), 85,000t/y of draw textured yarn (DTY), 14,000t/y of full draw yarn (FDY) and 55,000t/y of polymers. PET will be produced on two lines of 225,000t/y capacity, the first of which will begin producing at the end of the second quarter, and the second at the end of the year, ICIS reported. According to Petrobras' latest earnings report, PTA production began in January and PET production is still due to begin "at the start of 2014." Petrobras is reported to be trying to sell the entire complex, as it plans to focus on the development of Brazil's offshore oil and gas discoveries.

  • Chile's plans to improve Valparaíso's infrastructure, housing and connectivity following the worst fire in the history of the port city could top US$1bn, an official told BNamericas. On April 12, a forest fire quickly spread across hills around Valparaíso, killing 15 people, leaving some 15,000 homeless and destroying 3,000 houses. It exposed the city's fragile infrastructure and precarious housing situation as homes had been built illegally in hard-to-reach areas. President Michelle Bachelet has promised to develop an ambitious plan to revamp Valparaíso, one of Chile's most populated cities, with nearly 1mn residents in its metropolitan area. Plans include raising social housing standards and changes in urban planning to consider fire and landslides risks, said Luis Parot, the head of Valparaíso's planning department. In addition, nearly US$600mn will be invested on infrastructure, mostly on inner roads to connect the city's various hills. Parot said plans need to be discussed and agreed with local residents. The overall cost "would exceed US$1bn ... We believe this is an old debt the government owes Valparaíso. And we think this is the right time to pay it off," Parot told BNamericas. Valparaíso surged in the 19th century as a strategic regional port and a powerful trading post, but was later eclipsed by the Panama Canal, which reduced its relevance in world trade, and by Santiago, where political power finally concentrated. The city was declared a World Heritage site by Unesco in 2003. Parot added that the preliminary plan would be ready "within a few weeks," but that construction of new social housing projects would last two years, while it would take up to four years to build roads and other infrastructure.

  • Nearly one month after it passed the lower house, the Brazilian senate unanimously approved the civil internet bill late Tuesday. Approval of the bill, known as Marco Civil da Internet, is a major political victory for President Dilma Rousseff, who was set to open an international conference on internet governance in São Paulo on Wednesday. The government pushed for rapid approval in the senate to showcase the bill at the event, dubbed Global Multistakeholder Meeting on the Future of Internet Governance (NETmundial). Senator Eduardo Braga, leader of the government coalition in the senate, confirmed that Rousseff will sign the bill into law at the conference. Opposition senators backed the bill but decried pressure to approve the Marco Civil. "We are approving this bill today so that it can be used as a trophy for the president at the event," said senator Agripino Maia. Only minor language adjustments were made in the senate, but there are concerns that core pillars, such as net neutrality, could still be modified through pressure from telcos.
