The San Pablo leper colony in Iquitos in the Peruvian Amazon is not only famous for being one of the hostels where Che Guevara stayed during his travels around Latin America in his youth. It is also known for having been the research institute where Dr Maxime Kuczynski began his fight against tropical disease in the Peruvian jungle. Maxime, a German doctor with Polish and Jewish roots, married the schoolmistress, Madeline Godard, a French citizen with Swiss lineage. Together they had a son called Pedro Pablo, born October 3 1938 in the city of Lima, the capital of Peru.

The first time the Peruvians set eyes on Keiko Fujimori was on the morning of April 8, 1990. It was a direct broadcast on national television of the breakfast of the surprise candidate in the presidential elections that year.

These barriers are cost prohibitive for too many SMEs.

Now the situation is more complicated. Europe is facing new problems, and it is no longer what needs to be done to address them.

2015 saw a number of key events in Latin America; but perhaps the most important occurred in the political arena with the change of government in Argentina, the National Assembly election results in Venezuela, and the progress made in the peace process in Colombia. These marked out a new direction for the countries in question and could have possible repercussions on the region's economy.
