Choi You-sun reports. The Honduran economy is one of the weakest in Central America, recording a GDP of 19 billion U.S. dollars last year. With the country greatly lacking infrastructure, many Hondurans suffer from a chronic shortage of electricity. Celebrating 53 years of diplomatic ties, Korea and Honduras agreed to join efforts to improve the power supply system in the Central American country.

http://buyorganiccoffee.org/1427/leaf-rust-resistant-honduran-coffee/ Leaf Rust Resistant Honduran Coffee By www.BuyOrganicCoffee.org Research into resistant coffee strains and significant replanting has led to increased Honduran coffee output and exports. Agrimoney.com writes about how the third ranking exporter of Arabica coffee is well on its way to overcoming coffee leaf rust and bringing exports back up to traditional levels. Honduran coffee production, and exports, will hit a record high in 2015-16 as Central America's top bean grower reaps the benefit of efforts to counter rust, which badly hurt the region's output two seasons ago. Honduras - Latin America's third-ranked coffee exporter after Brazil and Colombia, and renowned as an origin of higher quality supplies - will produce 6.11m bags of beans in 2015-16, on an October-to-September basis, the US Department of Agriculture bureau in Tegucigalpa said. That would take to 37% the rebound in output from a low last season, as coffee rust spread through the country, as it did through other Central American producing nations. And it would lift output - all of arabica beans - above the record 5.60m bags achieved in 2011-12, before the outbreak of rust, caused by the roya fungus, which cuts yields dramatically and can result in tree death. Honduras, like Colombia has been carrying out research to develop coffee leaf rust resistant strains. This effort has been successful and many coffee plantations that were replanted a few years ago are back in production. Corporate Efforts to Fight Leaf Rust The mega coffee shop people, Starbucks, are pouring money into supporting high end and organic coffee farmers in fighting leaf rust. The Seattle Times reports that Starbucks is giving $30 million more for this effort. Starbucks renewed a commitment to fund loans for coffee farmers in a bid to strengthen the often wobbly supply chain for the bean that underpins its sprawling empire. The coffee giant said it will allocate $30 million to a global fund for farmers to be distributed over the next five years, a follow-up to the program that has applied $20 million since 2010 toward loans made through microfinance nonprofits such as Root Capital. The loans are designed to help farmers with little access to traditional financing from banks. Starbucks’ promise comes as coffee farmers in Central America and the Caribbean struggle to recover from a devastating epidemic of coffee rust and deal with the impact of climate change on their crop. The company says some 62 cooperatives in eight countries - representing more than 40,000 farmers - were aided by the initial $20 million. This is an example of enlightened self-interest. Starbucks prospers because it provides a great cup of coffee and that cup of coffee threatened when small high end and organic coffee farmers go under. Not All Nations Are Successful While leaf rust resistant Honduran coffee is leading that nation back to its accustomed spot on the coffee export list nations like Nicaragua are struggling with the plant disease. CCTV America writes about how coffee rust threatens crops in Nicaragua. High-quality coffee produced in Nicaragua is one of the country’s most lucrative exports. But a disease called “coffee leaf rust” is devastating the crop fields of Nicaragua and the farmers who harvest them. The same plant that won one of the most important coffee prizes in Nicaragua a few years ago has now been deeply affected by coffee rust. The most successful nations, like Honduras will follow the example of Colombian efforts to fight leaf rust and see their production and exports recover. http://youtu.be/FqwsvcuCJF8

Car New | Toyota aims to boost Brazil exports with locally made engines Toyota Motor Co will soon begin selling Brazilian-made Corollas in Peru, executives said on Thursday, and is in advanced studies to export from Brazil to Chile and Colombia in a push to make its South American plants more competitive. Toyota Motor Co will soon begin selling Brazilian-made Corollas in Peru, executives said on Thursday, and is in advanced studies to export from Brazil to Chile and Colombia in a push to make its South American plants more competitive. Steve St. Angelo, Toyota’s most senior executive in the region, said the exports to Peru were part of a long-term plan to integrate Brazilian operations with the rest of Latin America, which has long imported Corollas from the United States. Toyota’s Brazilian factories, which exported only to Argentina when St. Angelo arrived in 2013, also send the mid-sized Corolla sedan and smaller Etios to Uruguay and Paraguay now. he said.Toyota has invested in a new engine plant and engineering facilities in Brazil, which St. Angelo said would be key to lifting the domestic content of the Corolla and Etios from about 60 percent currently. As Brazilian plants import fewer parts, they should be able to export more competitively to new markets, Rafael Chang, the company’s new chief executive in Brazil, said he hoped to have news “soon” on exports to Chile and Colombia. Toyota’s exports from Brazil rose nearly 10 percent in 2016 to about 43,000 cars, of some 176,000 vehicles produced in the country last year. “We’re trying to diversify our Brazilian operations, so we’re not so dependent on this one economy,” St. Angelo told journalists at a launch event for the new Corolla in Brazil. Brazil’s worst recession in more than a century has nearly halved auto sales since 2012, battering automakers’ profitability and leading them to cut some 35,000 workers. Auto factories in Brazil are still using less than half of installed capacity, as high unemployment and tight credit pinch demand. St. Angelo acknowledged that Toyota had struggled to turn a profit in the country during the recession. “We’re not going to break even this year,” he said of the Brazilian business, adding that Toyota had not finalized its projections for the fiscal year. “We’ve been doing an unbelievable amount of cost cutting. Everyone is sacrificing.” St. Angelo said an overhaul of Argentine operations had also diversified exports from that country beyond just Brazil to include Honduras, Guatemala, Peru, Chile and Colombia.

Among ambassadors are Joss Stone, Desmond Tutu for more info visit http://www.100places.com - Honduras Shaped by a Restless Underground Positioned near the junction of three tectonic plates, Honduras has been shaped by millions of years of underground movements that has created the most mountainous country in Central America, albeit with alluvial plains covering the Caribbean lowlands in the north Most of Honduras 7.6 million inhabitants live in villages and towns tucked into its numerous valleys or clinging to the slopes of its mountains. Smallholders grow coffee on the steep mountainsides, and the lower coastal plains are covered with banana plantations and palm trees that produce palm oil and biodiesel. Coffee and bananas are vitally important exports for Honduras, one of the poorest countries in the Americas. Despite its unstable geology, it is not earthquakes but hurricanes that have proven to be the biggest threat to Honduras. In 1998, Hurricane Mitch ravaged Central America, hitting Honduras the hardest. It sent waves almost seven metres high crashing into the coast, and the extreme rainfall made the Choluteca River flood to six times its normal width. Flooding and mudslides wiped out entire villages, roads and nearly all the countrys bridges, obliterated about 80% of the coffee and banana crops, washed away the topsoil and covered plantations with sand. The hurricane also killed almost 6,000 people. Mitch was the fourth strongest hurricane ever observed in the Atlantic basin, but since then no fewer than three others have already surpassed it. Rising sea temperatures are projected to increase the frequency of extreme weather events, particularly across Central America. Time and again, hurricanes like Mitch will set back the development of poor countries such as Honduras.

The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banana Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Banana is the common name for an edible fruit produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants of the genus Musa. The fruit is variable in size, color and firmness, but is usually elongated and curved, with soft flesh rich in starch covered with a rind which may be yellow, purple or red when ripe. The fruits grow in clusters hanging from the top of the plant. Almost all modern edible parthenocarpic (seedless) bananas come from two wild species -- Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana. The scientific names of most cultivated bananas are Musa acuminata, Musa balbisiana, and Musa × paradisiaca for the hybrid Musa acuminata × M. balbisiana, depending on their genomic constitution. The old scientific name Musa sapientum is no longer used. Musa species are native to tropical South and Southeast Asia, and are likely to have been first domesticated in Papua New Guinea. They are grown in at least 107 countries, primarily for their fruit, and to a lesser extent to make fiber, banana wine and as ornamental plants. Worldwide, there is no sharp distinction between "bananas" and "plantains". Especially in the Americas and Europe, "banana" usually refers to soft, sweet, dessert bananas, particularly those of the Cavendish group, which are the main exports from banana-growing countries. By contrast, Musa cultivars with firmer, starchier fruit are called "plantains"... Southeast Asian farmers first domesticated bananas... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honduras ...In 1904, the author known as O.Henry (William Sydney Porter, 1862–1910) published a book called Cabbages and Kings, about a fictional country, Anchuria, inspired by his experiences in Honduras, where he had lived for six months. In The Admiral, O.Henry refers to the nation as a "small maritime banana republic"; naturally, the fruit was the entire basis of its economy. According to a literary analyst writing for The Economist, "his phrase neatly conjures up the image of a tropical, agrarian country. But its real meaning is sharper: it refers to the fruit companies from the United States that came to exert extraordinary influence over the politics of Honduras and its neighbors. In addition to drawing Central American workers north, the fruit companies also encouraged immigration of workers from the English-speaking Caribbean, notably Jamaica and Belize, which introduced an African-descended, English-speaking and largely Protestant population into the country, although many of these workers left following changes to immigration law in 1939. Honduras joined the Allied Nations after Pearl Harbor, on 8 December 1941, and signed the Declaration by United Nations on 1 January 1942 along with twenty-five other governments... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Fruit_Company The United Fruit Company was an American corporation that traded in tropical fruit (primarily bananas), grown on Central and South American plantations, and sold in the United States and Europe. The company was formed in 1899, from the merger of Minor C. Keith's banana-trading concerns with Andrew W. Preston's Boston Fruit Company. It flourished in the early and mid-20th century, and it came to control vast territories and transportation networks in Central America, the Caribbean coast of Colombia, Ecuador, and the West Indies. Though it competed with the Standard Fruit Company (later Dole Food Company) for dominance in the international banana trade, it maintained a virtual monopoly in certain regions, some of which came to be called banana republics, such as Costa Rica, Honduras, and Guatemala. United Fruit had a deep and long-lasting impact on the economic and political development of several Latin American countries... United Fruit was merged with Eli M. Black's AMK in 1970, to become the United Brands Company. In 1984, Carl Lindner, Jr. transformed United Brands into the present-day Chiquita Brands International...

The leaders of Korea and Honduras held summit talks in Seoul today. Topping their agenda was boosting energy cooperation, which is expected to resolve the severe power shortage in Honduras and also help both sides meet their greenhouse gas reduction goals. Choi You-sun reports. The Honduran economy is one of the weakest in Central America, recording a GDP of 19 billion U.S. dollars last year. With the country greatly lacking infrastructure, many Hondurans suffer from a chronic shortage of electricity. Celebrating 53 years of diplomatic ties, Korea and Honduras agreed to join efforts to improve the power supply system in the Central American country. Some of the methods include establishing an eco-friendly village that is energy self-sufficient, reducing power loss during electricity distribution, and supplying electric vehicles. Honduras is also interested in the Korea-based Green Climate Fund project to produce electricity from methane gas found in landfills. At a joint leaders′ conference in Seoul, President Park Geun-hye said while considering their mutually-beneficial trade structures, the two sides agreed to actively spur trade and investment and increase joint energy infrastructure projects. While the deal will help both sides to develop expertise in the field of new energy, it′s also expected to assist them in fulfilling their pledges in greenhouse gas emissions. With its energy initiatives in countries like Honduras, Korea hopes to garner international approval to fulfill its reduction pledge of 37 percent, relative to a level forecast by the year 2030. Korea has also agreed to share its knowledge from the Saemaul Undong or New Community Movement in the 1970s, to develop and modernize the Honduran rural economy and continue to support Honduras′ special economic zone project for job creation.

Mid of President Manuel Zelaya and US ambassador to Honduras, Charles A. Ford, entering press conference 4. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Manuel Zelaya, Honduran President: "(This is) a historic treaty of great importance to the Central America region, but especially for our country, for Honduras. It opens up enormous commercial opportunities across many different sectors of our society. It not only is a historic moment but also an important milestone for the development of our country's economy and society." 5. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Charles A. Ford, US Ambassador to Honduras: "Without a doubt, it will open up many opportunities for economic development. It is a market strengthening process where we'll see results in the next few years. In 10 years we'll see a transformation reducing unemployment and reducing poverty." 31 March 2006 6. Various shots of protest against CAFTA negotiations STORYLINE Honduras and neighbouring Nicaragua on Saturday joined a regional free trade agreement with the United States that has provoked protests throughout Central America amid fears it will harm small businesses and farmers. At a ceremony in Tegucigalpa to inaugurate the Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), Honduran President Manuel Zelaya said the treaty opened up "enormous opportunities" for his nation's economy and its society. Last month, El Salvador became the first Central American country to join the pact. Costa Rica, Guatemala and the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic have yet to join, after implementing promises in such areas as the protection of intellectual property rights, a key US demand. The US ambassador to Honduras, Charles A. Ford, said the agreement would be instrumental in reducing poverty in the region over the next decade. But not everyone was celebrating. Thousands of farmers, street vendors, university students and others have marched in cities across Central America to protest against the agreement for fears that US products will dominate their countries' import markets. The deal is designed to eliminate tariff and non-tariff barriers among the participating countries and is part of Washington's push to strike free trade deals with nations around the world as a way of boosting US exports. The agreement cleared the US Congress after a hard-fought battle last year. It had been expected to take effect on January 1 with all six nations, but it has run into a series of obstacles as different countries have had trouble passing laws to meet US demands. keyword-economy You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/0b42d10a0423d951512e596ebf5b8721 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork
