Plan Puebla Panama and Integration to be discussed at presidential meetings
The presidents of the region have back-to-back meetings today in El Salvador and tomorrow in Mexico, to discuss regional integration and the re-starting of the Plan Puebla Panama.
Friday, June 27, 2008
Presidents from Central America, Mexico and Colombia will meet Saturday in the Mexican city of Villahermosa, where the theme will be Plan Puebla Panama. Lurking in the background is another topic that will likely arise: political tension between Colombia and Nicaragua.
The vice president of the United States will meet with isthmus leaders during his visit to Costa Rica on March 29 and 30.
In Central America, Antonio Saca is first (66%), followed by Oscar Arias (49%), Martín Torrijos (48%), Álvaro Colom (45%), Daniel Ortega (38%), Manuel Zelaya (25%).
The region made a petition to the Central American Bank for Economic Integration that could reach $2 billion, that is $400 for each one of the five countries in SICA.
Starting next week both countries will eliminate their borders to allow for the movement of merchandise and people, as a part of the integration process.
