South Korea visits Nicaragua to explore investments

A delegation of businessmen and government officials from South Korea will visit Nicaragua from October 16 to 28 to explore cooperation and investment areas, the country's ambassador to Managua, Seok Hwa-Hong, said Tuesday.

"We are going to bring a large delegation composed of Korean associations and officials who want to explore possible areas of work", the diplomat told to local reporters according to EFE news agency.

Nicaraguan areas of interest to South Korea are especially related to aquaculture and technology transfers, said the ambassador, and also security in the fishing industry.

Last month, as part of the 55th anniversary of the establishment of friendly relations between the two countries, the Nicaraguan National Assembly declared October 3 as "Nicaragua-Korea Friendship Day." South Korea has provided cooperation to Nicaragua in potable water projects, solar energy, road construction and many other sectors.

The Law Firm, specialized in the field of Intellectual Property, formerly known as Henry Caldera & Henry Caldera-Pallais, was founded in 1907 by Mr. Henry Caldera, as part of a three-way operation consisting also of the import and retail of goods. With time, these three operations became separate enterprises. That same year, and through the efforts of Mr. Caldera, Nicaragua had its first Trademark Law.

In the late 1930’s, Mr. Caldera’s older son, Henry Caldera-Pallais, after obtaining a Law degree in Nicaragua, furthered his studies in the University of Michigan, where he graduated to become a U.S. Registered Patent Agent. During his stay in the United States, he gained experience working with the New York firm of Lagner, Parry, Card and Largner. In the late 1940’s, Mr. Caldera-Pallais returned to Nicaragua to take charge of the Law Firm, which became known as Henry Caldera & Henry Caldera-Pallais.
