Central America not counting on more aid following Obama visit

first_imgCentral American leaders are happy to host U.S. President Barack Obama in Costa Rica in early May, but they’re not holding their breath for more financial aid from his government, Costa Rican Foreign Minister Enrique Castillo told the daily La Nación on Sunday.“Times have changed. I don’t expect we’ll see a sudden influx of financial aid from the United States in this region,” he said, noting that the U.S. is focused on controlling its own public spending back home.Obama’s May 3-4 visit, when he will meet with seven Central American and Caribbean heads of state, will focus instead on strengthening political ties in Latin America, Castillo said.“The first [Obama] administration was marked by a distance and certain indifference towards Latin America with a few countries being an exception,” Castillo told La Nación.“I think now he is expressing more of an interest in regions with small countries, but where the U.S. has security and immigration interests,” he added.Obama’s visit could help shore up better cooperation on those issues by initiating channels of better political dialogue.Most members of the Central American Integration System have confirmed they’ll attend the summit, including Guatemala’s Otto Pérez Molina, Panama’s Ricardo Martinelli, El Salvador’s Mauricio Funes and Costa Rica’s Laura Chinchilla, who will host the event.Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said he would attend, following an embarrassing exchange last week when Ortega claimed Costa Rica didn’t invite him. The Costa Rican Foreign Ministry quickly produced a copy of a formal invite sent to the Nicaraguan Embassy in San José, contradicting Ortega’s claims.Honduran President Porfirio Lobo is expected to attend but has not yet formally accepted the invitation. Belize’s Dean Barrow also has not said if he’ll attend.Obama first will travel to Mexico on May 2, where he’ll meet with his Mexican counterpart, Enrique Peña Nieto.

New York New York – Reported by Elite Traveler t

first_imgNew York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineWatchmaking skills, technical innovations and continuity are values that define Carl F. Bucherer. With the Adamavi range, the Swiss watch brand has succeeded in creating a collection that stands for the pleasure provided by timeless design and for a unique philosophy: the striving to preserve things of proven value.Since it was founded over 120 years ago, the Bucherer enterprise has remained in the sole possession of the family of the founder, Carl Friedrich Bucherer. As a result of this continuity the Carl F. Bucherer watch brand, which has been independent since 2001, has become a quality brand whose success is based on a valuable store of experience in the field of mechanical watchmaking and the art of jewelry. Although Carl F. Bucherer stands for a constant drive for innovation and a high degree of technical development, it is of great importance to the brand that proven technologies and design elements should be carried over into the future.The principle of holding on to the proven values of the past is embodied in the classic appearance of the watches in the Adamavi family. The very name Adamavi stands for a feeling that these watches trigger in the wearer: translated from the Latin, Adamavi literally means “to come to love something” or “to take pleasure in something”. Because all the models in the range are characterized by timeless simplicity and mechanical reliability, they are more than just timepieces.They are true companions whose visual appeal will outlast the short-lived trends of our present time, conferring an aura of reliability and continuity upon their owners. The pleasure of time. With their understated and enduring design, watches bearing the name of Adamavi can be worn on any occasion. These puristic timepieces have their own aesthetic continuity, and therefore represent real value that is certain and timeless. Value that will also provide lasting pleasure for the wearer.One striking model in the Adamavi family is the Adamavi Pavé, perfectly executed in 18 K rose gold. The dial and bezel are set with sparkling diamonds, arranged in circles from the center outwards. In combination with the gold-colored baton markers, they suggest a shimmering sun whose radiant power lasts forever. As will your pleasure in a watch from the Adamavi range. A watch you will certainly never want to give away.www.carl-f-bucherer.comlast_img read more
