The new government in Honduras is doing better abroad than it is at home

Friday, July 23, 2010


It is over a year since Honduras’s leftist president, Manuel Zelaya, was bundled out of his home at dawn by the army and exiled to Costa Rica.
 
Yet friendships, business deals and families are still split by rows over the events of June 28, 2009.
 
The squabbling has been no less furious on the international stage but the president, Porfirio Lobo, has tried to mend fences. Honduras says it has reopened relations with 86 countries, and is expected to borrow $122 million from multilateral lenders this year.
