Honduras Hosting Summit

Honduras is summoning leaders of Central American countries to a regional summit on climate change.

The meeting, scheduled for May 26-28 in the country’s northern city of San Pedro Sula, about 178.64 km away from the Honduran capital of Tegucigalpa, is designed to evaluate the climate change’s impact on the regional economy and people’s livelihood and to boost cooperation on environmental protection, said a spokesman for the president’s office.

Belize’s prime minister and presidents from Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama are expected to attend the summit.

Honduras has also invited Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and Mexican President Felipe Calderon to attend the meeting as special guests.
