President Obama to Visit South AmericaPresident Obama announced in his State of the Union address that he and First Lady Michelle Obama will be traveling to Brazil, Chile, and El Salvador this March. Their South America trip, scheduled for March 19-23, will be taken in hopes of developing economic and security relations between the US and Latin American nations, Dow Jones Newswires and other sources say. The Obamas have never been to South America before; the closest President Barak got was when he traveled to Trinidad and Tobago for the Summit of the Americas in 2009. This time, they’ll stop in major cities such as Brasilia, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago and San Salvador, to discuss foreign policy with Latin American presidents and other political leaders. Topics on the agenda include job creation through partnerships, cooperation in energy standards, and heightened security measures. Obama’s first ever trip to South America seems to show the increased importance of the developing nations of the Americas in global relations. In a statement released February 18, the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said that President Obama planned to cover several issues, including “shared values and other issues of regional and global concern.” The locations that the Obamas will be visiting are not only political hotspots, they are also popular South America travel destinations.
