(Adds context, bond price)NEW YORK, June 14 (Reuters) - Belize said on Monday holders of its 2034 bonds have agreed to extend the grace period of a coupon payment missed last month to Sept. 19. Belize’s $550 million bond was unchanged in price on Monday but closed up 5 cents last week for its strongest weekly showing in 14 months. “The grace period relating to the May 20, 2021 coupon payment will be extended to September 19, 2021,” the ministry of finance said in a statement. The proposal had been endorsed by a group of creditors, including U.S.-based GMO and Greylock as well as London-based Abrdn. The bond traded as low as 32.5 cents on the dollar in the second half of April, and last traded at 40.25 cents.

NEW YORK, June 11 (Reuters) - Belize’s $550 million bond was on track to close its strongest week in 14 months on Friday, ahead of the deadline on a proposal seeking bondholder consent to new terms. The Central American country extended last week its consent solicitation through 5 p.m. New York time on Friday. The $550 million bond, which traded as low as 32.5 cents on the dollar in the second half of April, last traded at 40.25 cents, according to Refinitiv data, up 5 cents on the week, the most for any week going back to April 2020. The price matches its May high and is the highest since early April. The Central American country has been hit hard by the impact of COVID-19, with a sharp fall in tourism revenue and a rise in spending.

“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

NEW YORK, June 8 (Reuters) - A group of Belize’s creditors said on Tuesday they will support the Central American government’s proposal for an extension of the grace period regarding a coupon payment the government missed last month. A creditor committee including U.S.-based GMO and Greylock as well as London-based Abrdn, which last week rejected Belize’s proposal, said it reached an agreement with the government’s advisers and intends to agree to the deferral. Belize is looking to stretch out to October 2021 any principal restatement related to the May 20, 2021, coupon payment. The Central American country extended last week its consent solicitation through Friday, June 11, at 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT), the ministry of finance said in a statement. The central American country has been hit hard by the impact of COVID-19, with a sharp fall in tourism revenue and a rise in spending.

(Adds reaction from creditors)NEW YORK, June 1 (Reuters) - A group of Belize’s creditors said on Wednesday they will not support the Central American government’s proposal of new terms on its $550 million bond due in 2034 until discussions are held among the parties. S&P said last month it doesn’t expect the government to make the payment during a 30-day grace period. The Central American country on Tuesday extended its consent solicitation through Friday June 11 at 5:00 p.m. New York time, the ministry of finance said in a statement. The $550 million bond, which traded as low as 32.5 cents on the dollar on April 22, last traded at 39 cents according to Refinitiv data.

The fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic will change the business landscape far into the future. Guidance for navigating the changed business landscape, on the other hand, is much needed. No two industries were impacted by the coronavirus pandemic in the same way, but some common themes are emerging. The travel industry is likewise finding that a focus on sustainability offers a way forward. An increasing number of people want in on that kind of action, and it's up to the travel industry to organize it for them.

UPDATE 2-Belize and its 'Superbond' holders clash over IMF help
  + stars: | 2021-05-05 | by ( Marc Jones | ) www.reuters.com + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
Serial-defaulter Belize is looking to restructure a $550 million Superbond that emerged from 2006-07 restructuring and now contributes to a 133% debt-to-GDP ratio that the International Monetary Fund deems unsustainable. The central American country has been hit hard by the impact of COVID-19, with a sharp fall in tourism revenue and a rise in support spending, but the new government elected in November has so far eschewed a formal IMF support plan. Superbond holders, U.S.-based funds GMO and Greylock, and London-based Aberdeen Standard Investments which recently rebranded as ABRDN, have formed a creditor committee and are signalling they may not restructure without IMF help. They added the measures recommended by the Fund would help close a financing gap that has pushed Belize to seek to restructure its debt. “That meeting was cancelled after... the committee’s representatives indicated that the meeting was unlikely to be worthwhile unless Belize agreed in advance to accept a full IMF programme,” it said.

What are credit card and bank rewards points worth? One great feature of the program is that all points are equal, so any account that earns Membership Rewards points has access to transfer partners. Arrival Premier cardholders can transfer miles to 10 airlines, but this option doesn't add much value due to the subpar partner roster and transfer ratios. If you're a Bank of America Preferred Rewards customer, you'll earn 25% to 75% more points, depending on how much you have on deposit, but your rewards points are still worth 1 cent apiece. However, those miles expire after 36 months regardless of your account activity, so only transfer miles when you have immediate plans to redeem them.

In Mexico, ancient Maya cave reveals mysterious painted hand prints
  + stars: | 2021-05-01 | by ( ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +2 min
Dozens of black and red hand prints cover the walls of a cave in Mexico, believed to be associated with a coming-of-age ritual of the ancient Maya, according to an archeologist who has explored and studied the subterranean cavern. Archeologist Sergio Grosjean argues that the hand prints were likely made by children as they entered puberty, due to a analysis of their size, with the colors providing a clue to their meaning. 1/3 Hand prints, reportedly 1,200 years old, are seen on the cave walls, in Merida, Mexico April 2021, in this screengrab taken from a handout video. "Afterwards, these children imprinted their hands in red, which was a reference to war or life," he added. Several million Maya continue to live in communities scattered across southeastern Mexican states like Chiapas and Campeche, in addition to Guatemala and Belize.

To be clear, vaccinated travelers can still contract Covid-19 (and possibly transmit it), so researching infection and vaccination rates at intended destinations is also advisable. Vaccinated travelers traveling with unvaccinated companions must quarantine for a week or more if they choose to stay together. Travel Level: 1The British Virgin Islands are one of few CDC Level 1 Covid destinations that are welcoming vaccinated travelers. If the EU allows vaccinated travelers into the bloc, member states are free to impose additional testing and quarantine requirements. Plans for Portugal to welcome vaccinated travelers from the U.K. as early as May 17 have yet to be confirmed.

TAIPEI (Reuters) - The Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) will open a branch in Taipei, the bank and Taiwan’s government said on Friday, the first international government organisation to open an office on the Chinese-claimed island. Since 1992 Taiwan has been a member of CABEI, along with four of the island’s diplomatic allies — Belize, Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala. CABEI’s other members include Panama, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica and El Salvador, which previously also maintained formal ties with Taiwan. Taiwan’s central bank said the new office will help attract foreign investment and increase the island’s international visibility. Its other members are Mexico, Cuba, South Korea, Argentina, Colombia and Spain, none of which officially recognise Taiwan.

How Debt and Climate Change Pose a ‘Systemic Risk to the Global Economy’

How does a country deal with climate disasters when it’s drowning in debt? Especially not when a global pandemic clobbers its economy. Vastly different countries, they are among dozens of nations at the crossroads of two mounting global crises that are drawing the attention of international financial institutions: climate change and debt. They face staggering climate risks, too. The combination of debt, climate change and environmental degradation “represents a systemic risk to the global economy that may trigger a cycle that depresses revenues, increases spending and exacerbates climate and nature vulnerabilities,” according to a new assessment by the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and others, which was seen by The Times.

Maya ruins in Belize offer peek at ancient wealth inequality
  + stars: | 2021-03-24 | by ( Will Dunham | ) www.reuters.com + 0.00   time to read: +4 min
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An examination of numerous houses excavated at two sites in southern Belize is providing insight into gaping wealth inequality in ancient Maya cities - a disparity that researchers believe was closely linked to despotic leadership. Archeologist Amy Thompson excavates at the ancient Maya site of Uxbenka, Belize in April 2012. The researchers gauged wealth inequality based on the mix of large and smaller homes, along with the size and nature of the structures. Generally the more despotic the system, the more wealth inequality exists, Prufer added. Classic Maya locales, known for autocratic leadership dominated by strong kings, appeared to have had greater wealth inequality than other Mesoamerican cultural and language groups.

BRASILIA (Reuters) -The coronavirus is surging “dangerously” across Brazil, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) regional director for the Americas, Carissa Etienne, warned on Tuesday, urging all Brazilians to adopt preventive measures to stop the spread. COVID-19 cases have risen in Venezuela’s Bolivar and Amazonas states, and in border regions of Peru and Bolivia, she said. “Vaccines are coming but they are still several months away for most people in our region,” Etienne said. According to a Reuters tally, Latin America and the Caribbean have recorded around 23.7 million coronavirus cases so far, and 746,000 related deaths, almost double the toll of Asia and Africa combined. Brazil alone has had more than 295,000 deaths from COVID-19 and more than 12 million cases of the virus.

(CNN) Belize's football federation (FFB) expressed "disappointment and disgust" on Monday after the team bus carrying the squad from the airport to their hotel was stopped by "an uproar of insurgents with assault rifles on motorcycles." The incident occurred on Monday morning after the squad arrived in the country's capital, Port-au-Prince, ahead of their 2022 World Cup qualifier. "Despite the four-man police escort, the team bus was stopped by an uproar of insurgents with assault rifles on motorcycles and police escorts were forced to negotiate with them for the team bus to continue its journey to the hotel," the FFB said in a statement on its Facebook page"The situation is one that the team should have never faced but we are pleased to report that our Jaguars, although shaken by the terrible experience, are safely at their hotel," the FFB added. The federation posted a picture of the incident on its Facebook page showing at least two masked men carrying assault rifles. It is unclear how many men were involved and their motive.

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico — The Mexican banks of the Suchiate river dawned Sunday with a heavy presence of immigration agents in place to enforce Mexico’s new limits on all but essential travel at its shared border with Guatemala. Dozens of immigration agents lined the riverside asking those who landed on the giant innertube rafts that carry most of the cross-border traffic for documentation and turning many back. Vázquez said her family travels the 100 kilometers monthly from Quetzaltenango to buy plastic items and sweets they re-sell at home. After a negotiation, immigration agents allowed her sister and another relative to pass, but they had to leave their IDs with agents while they shopped. On Friday, hundreds of National Guard troops and immigration agents paraded through the capital of the southern state of Chiapas.

TAPACHULA, Mexico (Reuters) - Guatemalan and Honduran soldiers will be deployed to prevent new U.S.-bound migrant caravans from advancing, military officials said, amid growing desperation among those seeking to cross and signs that some groups will depart later this month. Mexican soldiers decked out in riot gear stood nearby as migration officials with bullhorns ordered migrants gathered on a street and blocking traffic to disperse. Guatemalan military spokesman Ruben Tellez said on Friday that up to 4,000 soldiers would be deployed to stop the migrants from entering en masse. “We are going to reinforce our borders,” he said, referring to the country’s land-crossings with Honduras, El Salvador, Belize and Mexico. General Tito Livio Moreno, Honduras’ senior military officer, said earlier this week that soldiers would also be deployed in his country in a bid to preemptively stop any caravans.

And thanks to climate change, experts warn, Central America will have to brace for stronger storm impacts in the future – as well as higher economic damages, unless they prepare. Hurricane Eta alone caused up to $5.5 billion in damage in Central America, the Inter-American Development Bank said, while the impact of Iota has not yet been determined. “We have more energy embedded in the oceans, and 90% from climate change,” said Belizean meteorologist Carlos Fuller, the lead climate change negotiator for the Alliance of Small Island States. Iota for example spun from a 70 mile-per-hour (113 km-per-hour) tropical storm to a 160-mph (257-kph) Category 5 hurricane in 36 hours. This year, a record-tying two tropical storms were swirling over the Atlantic in May, before the season’s June 1 start.

Enness Global sent Business Insider a list of seven private islands from around the world that are on the market for less than $6 million each. In a COVID-19 world, the desire for space and privacy has never been more top of mind among prospective buyers. And while $33 million is surely an eye-popping sume, it isn't uncommon for the ultrawealthy to spend that much on homes. Enness Global provided Business Insider with private-island listings around the world with similar price points. The seven islands that made the list are all over the world, including in Belize in the Caribbean and Washington in the US, and range from $4.4 million to $5.5 million.
