The Corona virus should change global politics. The speed and scale of its transmission, and the severity of its impact is not, we know now to our cost, fake news. As the virus rapidly tracks people vectors world-side, the control of its impact is inextricably linked to the availability of resources and depth of governance. For these reasons, global leaders should focus on its impact among the most vulnerable, and in particular in Africa.
Amid the global turmoil caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan looked resilient in combating the virus outbreak. Jordan adopted harsh measures for the population and the economy with an unwavering intent to eliminate the virus. However, despite the proven efficiency of those measures in containing the virus, their economic impacts are still hard to fathom. These economic impacts show that Jordan’s real battle with the virus is not only on the health front but also on the economic front as well.

Combined with the sharp drop of oil prices, this new blow is likely to further complicate the security, political and economic dynamics that have plagued Iraq for more than a decade.
Since the start of the standoff between Russia and Saudi Arabia on oil production cuts and the following sharp decrease in oil prices, much ink has been spilt over Russia’s supposed resilience compared to its former OPEC+ partner.
The Internet is a decentralised structure whose functioning depends on a series of complementary technical protocols, laws, and international regulations.

According to recent estimates by the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), Latin America suffers from an infrastructure gap of around 2.5 percent of GDP, or around $150 billion per year.
In Latin America (LatAm), line ministries are usually responsible for sectoral policy development and in charge of infrastructure planning (long-term plans), programming (medium to short-term programs) and individual project appraisal. Furthermore, in most of LatAm countries, there are inter-sectoral development plans and programs, compiled by planning secretaries or ministries of economy and finance, which include the previous sectoral efforts.
