was Flesha born?
The Latin-American Federation of Environmental
Hygiene Services Institutions was created in March 24,
2000 in Montevideo, Uruguay.
The similarities between the political, economical and
social situation of Brazil, Uruguay, Colombia, Venezuela,
Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Panama
was a predominant factor for these countries to join one
another with one goal in mind: to improve the quality
of the services provided by companies of environmental
cleaning, maintenance and conservation in Latin America.
Amongst these similarities are the interventionist policy
practiced with exaggeration by the governments, the out-of-date,
reactionary and paternalist labor laws, the excessive
taxes and the irreversible globalization of the economy.
Representatives of the ten member countries
were present in the function, to carry out an idea that
came up during the 1980s: create a Federation capable
of uniting the common interests and deepen the bonds between
entrepreneurs of the
field of environmental conservation, cleaning and defense
in Latin America, allowing bigger exchanges and a constant
sharing of experiences.
That was when several entrepreneurs, amongst which were
Ricardo Costa Garcia (Brazil), Júlio Calimaris
(Uruguay), Franklin Retally (Panama), Sérgio Rosales
(Guatemala), Norberto Peluso (Argentina), Yannet de Spirito
Prado (Chile), Laura Pascua Aguilar (Colombia) and Maurício
Chico Cañedo (Mexico), created Flesha.
