|LISBON， Jan. 17 (Xinhua) -- Portugal's competitiveness cannot be based on low salaries， Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said on Tuesday.
He pointed to the need to attract and maintain human capital， during the opening of a seminar at the Catholic University of Lisbon， adding that exports had risen in the past 20 years.
"Today， in a European country， competitiveness is based on factors associated to innovation. It is not worthwhile to have the illusion of a strategy based on low salaries if we cannot manage to be competitive，" he said.
The Portuguese government has promised to reverse public wage cuts and lower taxes introduced by the former center right coalition.
Costa has blamed the previous administration for putting the burden on workers after the country signed a 78 billion euros (83 billion U.S. dollars) bailout program in 2011， which it exited in 2014.
Portugal's state budget for 2017 forecasts an economic growth of 1.5 percent and a budget deficit of 1.6 percent of GDP.
NEW YORK Da'Shawn Hand Black Jersey , June 27 (Xinhua) -- Lucy Sparrow opened her corner store "8 'Till Late" on June 5 in the Meatpacking District, New York City, but she had to close it 16 days later.
The British artist had to cut short the life of the 1,200-square-foot bodega because of overwhelming demand Tracy Walker Black Jersey , not rising rent in the high-end fashion spot.
Over 9,000 items in Sparrow's store, from snacks and fruit to toilet paper and cigarettes, among others Graham Glasgow Black Jersey , with price tags up to 77 U.S. dollars, were sold out in a little over two weeks, to the envy of other corner store owners.
Why did Sparrow's stock go so fast? The secret lies in her commodities themselves, which were all handmade from felt by the 30-year-old artist.
Hailing from Bath A'Shawn Robinson Black Jersey , England, Sparrow has set up in London three similar stores known as bodegas in Spanish.
"The inspiration for making a bodega was to recreate a slight of New York life," said Sparrow. "Bodega is such an integral part of New York life to New Yorkers, because (it is) their lifeline and it is where to get all the stuff they need 24 hours a day Michael Roberts Black Jersey ," she added.
Having existed in New York for more than seven decades, bodegas are shrinking faced with rising rent and competition from big retail chain stores.
Sparrow hopes her undertaking could in part help people remember how bodegas in every corner of the city bring neighborhood residents together.
"Bodega is where you see your neighbors, where you go every day to get the essentials you need in life. It's a community-led thing," she said.
Before coming to New York Jalen Reeves-Maybin Black Jersey , Sparrow had done a six-month research on items sold in regular American corner stores and spent nine months making them out of felt.
"I tried to get the atmosphere same, the shelving, the floor. I've really tried hard to recreate it as exactly as it should be," she said Kenny Golladay Black Jersey , "I did a lot of drawings, I took a lot of photos...the research was extensive."
Even the name of the store, "8 'Till Late," has an American taste. "It's supposed to be a little bit taken from 7-11 Teez Tabor Black Jersey , but obviously we can't use that. So we use '8'till late' and it's actually open 8 till 8," Sparrow said.
Though the store has closed up, the fun and legacy Sparrow brought to the Big Apple remain.
"When my friend told me we were going to a convenience store, I thought she actually meant a convenience store Jarrad Davis Black Jersey ," recalled Carloy Fiest, who has been to the store twice. "When I came in, I was surprised that everything was made of felt."
