Nicaragua extreme poverty cut in half

first_imgBy David Hutt | Special to The Tico TimesLEÓN, Nicaragua – The Nicaraguan economy has been hitting the headlines for all of the right reasons lately. First came the news that since the Sandinistas returned to power in 2006, the economy has grown by 30 percent, according to a report by the Nicaraguan Central Bank, published last month.The same report noted that in the past year, Nicaragua has seen its gross domestic product increase from $1,239 to $1,582 per citizen.At the same time, the Nicaraguan government signed a lucrative memorandum of understanding with a major Chinese telecommunications company to fund and build an inter-oceanic canal and freight railroad across the country to rival the Panama Canal.Then came further good news from Venezuela that Hugo Chávez will serve another six-years in office, which was received by the Nicaraguan government with optimism and relief by the country’s economists. Nicaragua currently imports Venezuelan oil at “solidarity rates,” meaning the country pays rock bottom prices for half of the oil up front, and then pays back the rest through low-interest loans. According to the Central Bank, which released new trade figures shortly before the Venezuelan elections, 62 percent of Nicaraguan oil revenue goes to fund social programs and macro-business development. To top all of this, Paul Oquist, the presidential secretary for national policy, speaking on the political radio station Radio La Primerisima, reported recently that in the last five years, extreme poverty has fallen from 11.2 percent to 5.5 percent. Extreme poverty is measured by a daily income of less than $1.25. According to Oquist, Nicaragua also recorded an economic growth of 5.1 percent in 2011 – the highest rate in all of Central America. Insufficient Growth?Despite the optimism, most Nicaraguan economists agree that much more needs to be done. Oquist admitted that 5 percent growth is not good enough if the country wants to properly eradicate poverty and move away from being Central America’s poorest nation, and the second poorest in all of Latin America. “We could continue to grow at 5 percent and get good grades, because it is the fastest growing economy in Central America and we are reducing poverty. But we will not achieve a great transformation, eradicate extreme poverty and overcome poverty in Nicaragua by growing at 5 percent,” he said. Oquist said that a transformation of Nicaraguan society would be possible only with an 8 percent growth rate. However, he is confident that in the next few years Nicaragua will be able to reach this lofty target, largely through the projected megaprojects. He added that the government has an investment portfolio of more than $11 billion, including a major oil refinery complex to be funded by Venezuela, and the Chinese-subsidized canal. But not everyone is so confident. Independent economist Néstor Avendaño doubts whether Nicaragua will even be able to match its current growth in the coming year. “I don’t see any possibility of us getting above 4 percent growth next year,” he said. Avendaño predicted a growth rate of 3.1 percent for 2013.Furthermore, Nicaragua is going to have to invest much of its economic windfall back into society if it wants to alleviate poverty that still exists. Currently just under half of all Nicaraguans live in poverty. A walk around any Nicaraguan city makes clear that a great inequality of wealth still exists. A 10-minute stroll can take you from a barrio of broken windows, passed-out glue addicts and littered streets to a barrio with U.S.-styled houses, high wire fences and security guards patrolling the perimeters. A survey by Wealth-X, a firm that surveys global wealth, found that 190 “ultra-rich” people (with wealth greater than $30 million) live in Nicaragua, with a combined wealth of $26 billion, the third highest in Central America. So, while there are positive signs of economic progress and a reduction in poverty, the country is going to have to move a lot quicker if it wants to catch up to its Central American neighbors and alleviate the suffering of many of its citizens.

Carnival Cruise Lines introduce airinclusive bookings

first_imgCarnival Cruise Lines have announced today that local cruises can be booked with flights included, as part of their new Carnival CruiseAir packages.The launch of Carnival CruiseAir packages follows an increase in interstate bookings for the popular Sydney-based Carnival Spirit and Carnival Legend, as well as the debut of the cruise line’s new fly-cruise options to Singapore and Hawaii.Announcing the move, Carnival Cruise Lines vice president Australia Jennifer Vandekreeke said CruiseAir would make it easy for agents to book cruises and flights from 63 different cities across Australia and New Zealand.“CruiseAir is a one-stop shop which offers a variety of benefits for agents and their clients, with CruiseAir, guests can choose their airline, class and seat, with the system providing agents with side-by-side pricing options for flexible and restricted fares,” Ms Vandekreeke said.CruiseAir also comes with ‘next port’ protection, which means that if there’s a flight delay or service disruption Carnival Cruises will get guests to their next appropriate port of call.“Plus it offers post-cruise protection – so if a cruise is late into port and a guest misses their return flight, we’ll work with the airline to re-book the flight and ensure our guest gets home,” Ms Vandekreeke said.Carnival Cruise Lines is the largest cruise line in the world with over four and a half million guests travelling every year.

Go back to the enewsletter HapagLloyd Cruises 4

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterHapag-Lloyd Cruises [4 April 2019] released its 2020/21 program for EUROPA 2 overnight. The season will see the return of the ultra-luxury vessel to Australian waters in January 2021 – part of the vessel’s two-year rotation between Oceania and South America – with a cruise between Melbourne and Bali scheduled for departure on 6 January.According to Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ local representative, Gerd Wilmer from Landmark Travel in Sydney, Australian travellers keen to secure a berth on the Berlitz-rated “highest rated cruise ship in the world” will need to act early.“We get booked out very, very early,” he warned recently.Last week, Wilmer escorted a small group of luxury travel advisors and media – including LATTE – aboard EUROPA 2 while it was docked at White Bay in Sydney.EUROPA 2 at White Bay, Sydney on Monday 25 March 2019EUROPA 2 is a six-year-old vessel. A sister-ship to EUROPA, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises’ designated German-speaking vessel. While EUROPA 2 caters for an international audience, the percentage of non-German speaking travellers tends to be relatively low, at around 8-10% of the 516-passenger ship.Wilmer, who has been working with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises for 13 years, says the EUROPA ship class bucks the trend in a sea of sameness in cruise ship design.“Where everything looks more and more the same, and everything is run according to templates, some cruise lines don’t fit that model. And Hapag-Lloyd doesn’t fit that.”Gerd Wilmer, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises“There are a lot of things that we don’t have. We don’t have any non-commissionable fare components, so agents get a cut of the whole lot.“We don’t have any discounts. We don’t have dynamic fares. The price in the brochure is the price you pay.”He continued: “Our fares are not inclusive. We don’t have big ships. We don’t have inside cabins, and a few other things which you may miss, compared to others. But we do have lots of space.”“There is peace, and quiet. There’s never any announcements apart from those that are operationally necessary. There’s no music.“It’s an all-European hotel crew, there’s fine dining, and drinks are priced at Australian bottle shop prices: cheap.”For international guests on cruises of 10 days or more, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises does offer a credit of €200 as onboard spending money for drink purchases only.Wilmer said EUROPA 2 wasn’t designed to compete with other cruise ships. It was built to compete with luxury resorts on the land.“What you have here on board is a luxury, floating hotel. All these lovely things that you may be familiar with on cruise ships just does not exist here on EUROPA 2.“No Captain’s Dinner, no formal nights, no daily announcements about what the weather is doing,” he said.As a result, Hapag-Lloyd Cruises entices a “much, much younger audience than other five-star ships.”On board EUROPA 2, the ship’s reception resembles a luxury hotel or resort.EUROPA 2 ReceptionThere are six restaurants to choose from (buffet, Italian, French, Asian, Sushi and Main), with no surcharges applied at any of them. All guests are guaranteed at least one dinner in the specialty restaurants during a cruise.The restaurants are open for lunch, taking it in turns between which is open one day to the next.EUROPA 2 – Weltmeere (Main)EUROPA 2 – Serenissima (Italian)EUROPA 2 – Tarragon (French)EUROPA 2 – Elements (Asian)Meals are open seating. “Everybody goes wherever they like to go,” Wilmer said.There are also five bars spread throughout the ship.Bar SansibarBar Club 2Bar CollinsBar BelvederePool BarThe Ocean and Veranda Suites are 35 square metres in size (including verandah), the primary difference being the configuration with the Ocean having a toilet separate from the bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe.Penthouse SuiteThe Grand Ocean Suites and Penthouse Suites are 52 square metres in size (including verandah) and feature jacuzzis.EUROPA 2 also caters for the family market with young kids, something Wilmer says is a rarity for luxury cruise lines once guests move beyond the Celebrity Cruises and Princess brands.The Family Apartments are interconnecting suites with toilets and basins that are set lower for youngsters. EUROPA 2 also has kids’ clubs on board, with a nanny to child ratio of 1:3. When there are four children, a second nanny is brought on board. Children up to 11 years of age travel free of charge.Learn more about EUROPA 2 at back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
