SANTIAGO Women's Carl Lawson Jersey , Oct. 30 (Xinhua) -- China will become the leading destination for exports from Latin America and the Caribbean in 2017, with growth of 23 percent this year, according to a new report by the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

ECLAC's executive secretary, Alicia Barcena, unveiled the annual report on the region's trade on Monday in Santiago and said that exports would bounce back by 10 percent in 2017, after five years of slowdown.

"I think there have been many important steps between China and Latin America and the Caribbean. Now, the most important (objective) is to diversify the basket of exports so Chinese companies invest in our region," Barcena told Xinhua during a press conference.

According to Barcena, future increases can be seen between China and Latin America by adding value to agricultural goods, which are in high demand.

"Foodstuffs are very important to China and what better than to produce them here, where agriculture must be a sector large enough to continuously be worked on," she said.

Barcena also referred to technology, a sector which is booming in China, and called on countries to seek mutual benefits.

"China has made great advances in this direction recently. Our task must be to seek cooperation plans in this area. We must take advantage of 'The Belt & Road Initiative,' which must first connect Asia to Europe and then expand to us. We must continue with positive plans, such as the (undersea) cable that will unite China and Chile," she indicated.

ECLAC pointed out that exports of Latin America and the Caribbean have increased all around the world, rising 17 percent to Asia and 9 percent to the U.S. However, the region's trade with Europe is not performing as well, only growing by 6 percent.

Another positive mark is that imports also stopped a four-year fall and are set to rise by 7 percent in 2017, a good sign at a time of economic and geopolitical uncertainty, said the report.


BANGKOK, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Thai supreme court said on Wednesday morning that judges are going to verdict on former Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's case in absentia at around 11 a.m. local time.

The first female leader of Thailand is charged with negligence in her rice-subsidy scheme, during which her government purchase rice from farmers in a price higher than market price then.

Thai authorities said there was corruption in the rice-subsidy scheme and it caused huge loss to the kingdom.

Yingluck could face a jail sentence of up to 10 years if found guilty.

CHICAGO, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- Doctors at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found that radiation therapy can be used to treat patients with a life-threatening heart rhythm.

They have so far treated five patients who had irregular heart rhythms, called ventricular tachycardia, at the School of Medicine.

The five patients in the study had undergone catheter ablation procedures and their ventricular tachycardia returned, or they were unable to go through the procedure because of other high-risk medical conditions.

In the three months before treatment with noninvasive radiation therapy, the five patients together experienced more than 6,500 ventricular tachycardia events. The average number of events per patient during this time was 1,315, with a range of five to 4,312. During the first six weeks following radiation therapy, as the patients were recovering, they experienced a total of 680 episodes. In the one year the patients continued to be followed, they collectively had four events. Two patients didn't experience any episodes at all.

To be specific, of the five patients, one patient aged over 80 died in the first month after treatment of causes unlikely to be related to treatment. The remaining four, all in their 60s, are alive two years after radiation therapy, with two patients living unassisted without ventricular tachycardia.

The single dose of radiation these patients received is on par with what might be given to a patient with an early-stage lung tumor.

The radiation therapy does not take effect immediately. The number of arrhythmia events went down but did not disappear in the first six weeks after treatment, which the doctors characterize as a recovery period. After that six-week period, however, the number of events dropped to almost zero, and patients were able to slowly come off medications used to control the arrhythmia.

Doctors are cautious, saying they are still monitoring for long-term side effects of radiation therapy, such as lung scarring and further damage to the heart itself. They emphasized that their use of external radiation to the heart only included very ill patients in end-stage disease who had run out of options. More research is required before doctors might consider this approach for younger, healthier patients or as a possible addition to standard therapies.

Ventricular tachycardia is estimated to cause 300,000 deaths per year in the United States and is the leading cause of sudden cardiac death. Standard therapy includes medication and invasive procedures that involve threading a catheter through a vein into the heart and selectively burning the tissue that causes the electrical circuits of the heart to misfire.
