(Latin America)–Elsewhere, Latin American leaders and experts are agreeing publicly that to address many of their region’s problems, they need to consider ethical issues. Latin America Mission’s Ken MacHarg reports. “Churches in Argentina are participating in government efforts to address corruption. Speaking at an Americas conference in Miami, leaders acknowledged that corruption is costly and prevents Latin nations from developing their full potential. According to one Argentinean official, the church in his country has called for a new standard of behavior from both the government and businesses. At the conference, Colombia’s president Alvaro Uribe said that severe poverty leads to social unrest and political instability. He called on neighboring countries to help him improve living conditions for his people. For Mission Network News, I’m Ken MacHarg in Miami.”
