QCOSTARICA – Tuesday night, President Luis Guillermo Solís, once again for the second time this year gets out his passport, this time headed for Bolivia to take part in the inauguration of Evo Morales’ second term.

On his Facebook page, the President wrote, “When I took office, Evo Morales, President of Bolivia came to manifest the love and respect of his people. It is therefore our duty to reciprocate now as he assumes his new term.

“The trip is for me a diplomatic responsibility, that I assume convinced that Costa Rica is an inseparable part of the cultural, historical and geographical community in Latin America and it is therefore essential to strengthen ties with all countries of the region.

“I will go to Bolivia on Tuesday at the end of the day and return to Costa Rica on Friday morning. I’ll be two days and a few hours outside the country, but as always, very close to everything that happens here.”

Solís began the year with a visit to Brazil, to attend on January 1 the inauguration of Dilma Rousseff to a second term. From there, he headed directly to China for an official visit to the Asian country, meeting with Chinese official and businessmen, and take part in the opening of the China-CELAC Forum that opened on January 8. Costa Rica currently holds the CELAC pro-tempore presidency.

Unlike his predecessor, Laura Chinchilla Miranda, we have not had any scandals, such as making the use of a borrowed private plane and attending private ceremonies on the company dime.

On his return, the President will play host to the heads of states and representatives of the 33 countries that form part of the Comunidad de Estados Latinoamericanos y Caribeños (CELAC) – Community of Latin American and Caribbean States.

The event will take place on January 28 and 29, where Costa Rica will transfer the pro-tempore presidency to Ecuador.
