    Álvaro Uribe Colombia’s president
    Colombia’s president Álvaro Uribe has a lot of support and criticism as he faces huge challenges in his second term. Karina Robinson reports.

    Colonel Aureliano Buendía, the main protagonist in Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez’s epic One Hundred Years of Solitude, is described as “lost in the solitude of his immense power”. He realises that he has won and lost the many wars of his lifetime for one reason only: “pure arrogance”.

    That is my impression of president Álvaro Uribe, the man who has transformed Colombia, bringing greater security as well as one of the most welcoming business environments in Latin America.
