OP ED: We tried to shed light on this back in APRIL of 2018. This was easy to forecast.

For the regional headquarters of Latin America and the Caribbean of the World Bank, the migration of Venezuelans is the greatest mobilization in the countries of the area in recent history.

The office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees indicated that 4.6 million people have left Venezuela.

The largest number of migrants has been received by Colombia, which to date reports that there are 1.4 million Venezuelans in their territory, who have left their country for political, social and economic reasons.

Peru is the second destination chosen by Venezuelans to migrate. Therefore, to date it is reported that it has received 870 thousand.

In third place is Ecuador with a total of 385 thousand, while in Chile there are 371 thousand. Meanwhile, in Panama, according to the World Bank, there are 94 thousand.
