Honduras should look to the fastest growing world economy for an example on how to develop our economy, there are a lot of differences but the objective is the same, China’s overall economic construction objectives were clearly stated in the Three Step Development Strategy set out in 1987:
Step One—to double the 1980 GNP and ensure that the people have enough food and clothing;
Step Two—to quadruple the 1980 GNP by the end of the 20th century;
Step Three—to increase per-capita GNP to the level of the medium-developed countries by 2050, at which point, the Chinese people will be fairly well-off and modernization will be basically realized.
It seems that all clever plans are simple, of course that behind them a careful planning and strong action is required, but principles as simple as “increase the sales by 25%”, “Double the profit” or “reduce debt in half”, carefully built plans are behind those words.
Why can’t Honduras say that and DO IT? I remember the slogan, “Una Honduras Verde para el 2000”, and the year 2000, came and nobody had a green Honduras. We don’t want that with our nation building plan.
