LIAT: To Meet With Regional Trade Unions
----------------------------------------
The Daily Observer reports that the trade unions representing
workers employed with the cash-strapped regional airline, LIAT,
operating as Leeward Islands Air Transport, are meeting in Antigua
and Barbuda on May 14, ahead of a planned meeting with the
management of the airline.

Chairman of the LIAT Group of Unions, Chester Humphrey told the
Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) that the trade unions are
meeting to discuss "a number of issues we are deeply concerned
about," according to The Daily Observer.

The report notes that Mr. Humphrey, who is also president of the
Technical and Allied Workers Union (TAWU) in Grenada, said, LIAT
has already announced that it would be cutting down on its staff
"and we have recently received a letter indicating that they will
be offering firstly voluntary separation so the union will have to
discuss the issue."

"We are also going to be discussing the issue of late payment of
salaries and the fact that many of the collective agreements are
now long outdated and LIAT is slow to attend to those and there
are a whole range of grievances including pensions," the report
quoted Mr. Humphrey as saying.  "So it is really a composite
meeting where we will be discussing a number of matters in
preparation for the meeting where the union leadership together
with representatives from amongst the workers are meeting with the
management."

The report relays that Mr. Humphrey said the meeting will allow
for "an exchange of views on a number of issues touching and
affecting the airline".

Mr. Humphrey said he hoped at the end of the meeting, the trade
unions are hoping that a number of grievances would be dealt with
satisfactory and "that we will receive reports where we are at the
moment," the report notes.

Mr. Humphrey said one of the issues that would be raised will be
the re-location of the airline to Barbados and the concerns raised
by Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Gaston Browne over the
matter, the report adds.

                            About LIAT

LIAT, operating as Leeward Islands Air Transport, is an airline
headquartered on the grounds of V. C. Bird International Airport
in Antigua.  It operates high-frequency inter-island scheduled
services serving 21 destinations in the Caribbean.  The airline's
main base is VC Bird International Airport, Antigua and Barbuda,
with bases at Grantley Adams International Airport, Barbados and
Piarco International Airport, Trinidad and Tobago.

                         *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Dec. 2, 2014, Caribbean360.com said that chairman of the
shareholder governments of the financially troubled regional
airline, LIAT, operating as Leeward Islands Air Transport, Dr.
Ralph Gonsalves said while he is unaware of the details regarding
any possible retrenchment of employees, the airline needs to deal
with its high cost of operations.

The TCR-LA on March 10, 2014, citing Caribbean360.com, reported
that LIAT said it will take "decisive action" to deal with
unprofitable routes as the Antigua-based airline seeks to make its
operations financially viable.

On Sept. 23, 2013, the TCRLA, citing Trinidad and Tobago Newsday,
reported that there's much upheaval at the highest levels of LIAT
-- the Board and the Executive. Following the sudden resignation
of Chief Executive Officer Captain Ian Brunton, David Evans
replaced Mr. Brunton as chief executive officer.

ULTRAPETROL (BAHAMAS): S&P Affirms 'B' CCR; Revises Outlook to Neg
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
Ultrapetrol (Bahamas) Ltd. to negative from stable.  S&P also
affirmed its ratings, including the 'B' corporate credit and
issue-level ratings.

The outlook revision reflects S&P's concerns that continued
weakness in commodity prices, amid high costs of keeping a big
share of fleet idle, will maintain metrics in line with a "highly
leveraged" financial risk profile for at least the next two years.
Despite Ultrapetrol's efforts to strengthen its long-term
contracted position, with more favorable terms that allow for cost
pass-through and higher rates, market conditions remain
challenging given lower-than-expected general volumes of cargo and
greater competition in the Paraguay River area.

ECO SECURITIZADORA: Moody's Rates 68th Series Certs. at (P)Ba2
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's America Latina has assigned provisional ratings of (P) Ba2
(global scale, local currency) and (P) Aa2.br (national scale) to
the 68th series of the first issuance of agribusiness receivables
certificates ("certificados de recebiveis do agronegocio" or CRA)
to be issued by Eco Securitizadora de Direitos Creditorios do
Agronegocio S.A. (Eco Agro, not rated) backed by an export credit
note issued by Suzano Papel e Celulose S.A (Suzano).

Issuer: Eco Securitizadora de Direitos Creditorios do Agronegocio
S.A.

  -- 68th series, 1st issuance -- (P) Ba2 (global scale, local
     currency) / (P) Aa2.br (national scale)

Eco Agro will issue the agricultural receivables certificates,
which will be backed by an export credit notes issued by Suzano.
The underlying NCE is rated Ba2 on the global scale and Aa2.br on
the national scale. In addition, Suzano will be liable for
transaction expenses.

Suzano will use the proceeds from issuance exclusively for the
financing of its agribusiness activities, in connection with the
export of pulp and paper. The provisional ratings on the CRA are
based on a number of factors, among them the following:

- The willingness and ability of Suzano (as debtor) to make
   payments on the underlying NCE, rated Ba2/Aa2.br. Suzano is
   therefore ultimately responsible for making timely principal
   and interest payments on the notes backing the CRA.

- Pass through structure; mitigated interest risk: The CRA's
   payment schedule replicates the scheduled cash flow of the
   underlying NCE, with a one-day lag, which allows adequate
   timing to make payments on the CRA. The CRA will make payments
   that match the payments to be made by the underlying NCE. The
   floating rate of CDI (interbank deposit rate) to be paid under
   the CRA will be determined using the same CDI period under the
   NCE. In addition, to mitigate the risk of the additional 1 day
   of interest in the CRA during first interest rate period, the
   NCE will incorporate an extra day of interest accrual,
   mitigating any potential interest rate mismatch.

- Suzano will pay CRA expenses: Suzano will be responsible,
   under the transaction documents, for all the CRA expenses.

- Segregated assets: The CRA benefit from a fiduciary regime
   ("regime fiduciario") whereby the assets backing each series
   of CRA are segregated. These segregated assets are destined
   exclusively for payments on the CRA as well as certain fees
   and expenses, and will be segregated from all of the other
   assets on the issuer's balance sheet. However, the transaction
   is subject to residual legal risk because Eco Agro's
   agribusiness credits can be affected by the securitization
   company's tax, labor and pension creditors. (For more
   information, see the "Fiduciary Regime and Segregation of
   Assets" section in the Pre-sale Report.)

The (P) Aa2.br (national scale) and (P) Ba2 (global scale, local
currency) ratings assigned to the CRA are based mainly on the
willingness and ability of Suzano (as debtor) to honor the
payments defined in transaction documents, reflecting the
Ba2/Aa2.br rating of the underlying NCE backing the transaction.
Any change in the ratings of the NCE could lead to a change in the
credit quality, and thus, the ratings, of the CRA.

The ratings of the NCE that backs the 68th series of CRA, reflect
Suzano's position as a low cost producer of bleached eucalyptus
kraft pulp (BEKP) and paper, with leading stakes the global BEKP
market and Brazilian printing and writing paper and paperboard
sectors. Also, the company's comfortable liquidity profile, with
cash balance at the end of March 2015 sufficient to cover short
term debt maturities by 1.8 times and our expectations that
leverage and credit metrics will improve in the medium term with
the additional EBITDA stream coming from the 1.5 million tons BEKP
plant in the state of Maranhao, now running at full-capacity.
However, constraining Suzano's corporate ratings are the volatile
nature of the pulp industry, which should represent around 60-65%
of Suzano's revenues onwards and the still high leverage related
mostly to its pulp expansion in the state of Maranhao.
Furthermore, new hardwood projects ramping up in the next two
years in Latin America could pressure pulp prices if Moody's see a
deceleration in demand. To the extent the growth in demand from
China's paper manufacturers and pulp capacity shutdown do not
materialize, pulp prices could decline.

A Eco Securitizadora de Direitos Creditorios do Agronegocio S.A.
(Eco Agro) was incorporated in 2007 as a securitization company of
agribusiness credit rights and is headquartered in Sao Paulo. The
issuer is part of the Eco Agro Participacoes S.A., Group, which
maintains 99.99% of shares in Eco Agro. In addition to Eco Agro,
Eco Agro Participacoes also holds controlling positions in Eco
Consultoria Ltda (company which provides services to Eco Agro) and
Eco Gestao Ltda (company which manages funds). Since the beginning
of its operations, Eco Agro has issued 67 CRA, totaling an
issuance amount of approximately BRL 1.3 billion, with currently
outstanding CRAs totaling BRL 560 million.

Factors that would lead to an upgrade or downgrade of the rating:

Any changes in the rating of the underlying NCE could lead to a
change in the ratings on the CRA.


SUZANO PAPEL: Moody's Puts Ba2 Global Scale Rating to BRL500M NCEs
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's America Latina assigned a Ba2 global scale local currency
rating and Aa2.br National Scale Rating (NSR) to Suzano Papel e
Celulose S.A.'s proposed 4-year senior unsecured BRL500 million
NCEs (Notas de Credito a Exportacao). Net proceeds will be used to
fund forestry investments and for general corporate purposes. The
ratings outlook is positive.

The rating of the proposed NCEs assumes that the final transaction
documents will not be materially different from draft legal
documentation reviewed by Moody's to date and assume that these
agreements are legally valid, binding and enforceable.

Ratings assigned:

Issuer: Suzano Papel e Celulose S.A.

  -- BRL500 million NCEs due 2019: Ba2 (global scale) / Aa2.br
     (national scale)

  -- The outlook for the ratings is positive.

Suzano's Ba2/Aa2.br ratings incorporate the company's position as
a low cost producer of bleached eucalyptus kraft pulp (BEKP) and
paper, with leading stakes in the global BEKP market and Brazilian
printing and writing paper and paperboard sectors. The company
benefits from a high level of vertical integration with
substantial self-sufficiency in wood fiber and energy, in addition
to the proximity of its pulp mills to its own forests and port
facilities as well as the favorable location of its paper plants
within Brazil's most industrialized region. Furthermore its
diversity towards pulp and paper translates into exposure to
different market dynamics and contributes to strong operating
margins even amid a lower growth outlook for the paper industry in
Brazil.

Additional rating positives are the company's comfortable
liquidity profile, with cash balance at the end of March 2015
sufficient to cover short term debt maturities by 1.8 times and
our expectations that leverage and credit metrics will improve in
the medium term with the additional EBITDA stream coming from the
1.5 million tons hardwood plant in the state of Maranhao, now
running at full-capacity.

Constraining the ratings are the volatile nature of the pulp
industry, which should represent around 60-65% of Suzano's
revenues onwards and the still high leverage related mostly to its
pulp expansion in the state of Maranhao. Furthermore, there is
still new hardwood projects ramping up in the next two years in
Latin America, which will add approximately 2.5 million tons of
capacity in the market, and could pressure pulp prices if Moody's
see a deceleration in demand. To the extent the growth in demand
from China's paper manufacturers and pulp capacity shutdown do not
materialize, pulp prices could decline.

The proceeds from the proposed NCEs will be used to fund Suzano's
forestry operations. Moody's don't expect any leverage increase
resulting from the issuance, as the company will likely direct
part of its large cash balance to pay-down more expensive existing
debt, maintaining its absolute debt level unchanged.

The positive outlook incorporates our expectations that Suzano's
credit metrics will improve in the next 12-18 months thanks to the
improved cash flow generation supported by the additional pulp
capacity in Maranhao and our outlook of flat pulp prices in the
same period, which will contribute to a positive free cash flow
generation from 2015 onwards and gradual deleverage. The
maintenance of a robust liquidity position is also incorporated in
the positive outlook.

The ratings could be upgraded if Suzano's leverage decline while
the company maintains a comfortable liquidity position.
Quantitatively, that would require leverage - as measured by Total
Adjusted Gross Debt to EBITDA -- to approach 3.5x and interest
coverage - expressed by Adjusted EBITDA to Interest Expense - to
remain above 4.0x on a consistent basis.

Negative pressure on the rating could result if adjusted leverage
remains above 4.5x for a prolonged period without prospects for
reduction, or in case the company's liquidity position is
insufficient to cover near term debt service requirements.

Headquartered in Salvador - Brazil, Suzano Papel e Celulose S.A.
is a leading low-cost producer of bleached eucalyptus market pulp,
printing and writing paper and paperboard, having reported
consolidated net revenues of BRL 8.0 billion (about USD 3.3
billion) in the last twelve months ended in March 2015. The sales
mix (58% pulp and 42% paper) gives the company cash flow stability
due to the different supply-demand and pricing dynamics for each
of the segments. The company benefits from its vertical
integration and 70% self-sufficiency in wood and 100% in energy on
a consolidated basis (with excess capacity of 48MW) and also from
prudent financial management, solid liquidity position and good
risk management practices.

* CUBA: Expects Record Number of Tourists, Higher Revenues in 2015
------------------------------------------------------------------
EFE News reports that Cuba expects to surpass this year the record
sum of foreign tourists and revenues it attracted in 2014, a year
when the island's tourism industry took in $2.7 billion, according
to figures released at the International Tourism Fair, or FitCuba.

Last year, for the first time Cuba crossed the threshold of 3
million visitors, specifically with 3,002,745 million tourists, a
5.3-percent growth over 2013 and an upward trend that continued in
the first quarter of 2015 when a million travelers came to the
island, according to the Tourism Ministry, according to EFE News.

"Cuban tourism is in its best moment," Tourism Minister Manuel
Marrero said at FitCuba, the report notes.

In order to boost the number of international tourists, Cuba is
currently developing 53 projects to build hotels with a total of
5,492 rooms in the four- and five-star categories, which will be
added to the 61,200 that already exist on the island in some 300
hotels, the island's official media said, the report relays.

The Cuban tourist industry aims to continue these investments in
order to complete more than 85,500 rooms that meet international
standards by 2020, the report notes.

The new hotels are being built by mixed companies and will mostly
be administered by well-known hotel chains like the Melia and
Iberostar from Spain, which have been established in Cuba for
decades, in association with Cuban tourism groups like Gaviota and
Cubanacan, among others, the report says.

Among the new hotel installations already in business are Valentin
Perla Blu, with its 1,200 rooms in the central province of Villa
Clara, and the Melia Jardines del Rey with 1,176 in Jardines del
Rey, currently the hotels with the greatest capacity in the
country, the report discloses.

At present there are 18 foreign companies operating 35,682 rooms,
a figure that represents 57 percent of the country's total hotel
capacity, according to figures offered by Cuba's tourism minister,
the report relays.

The private sector also provides lodging in 11,500 homes, while
some 1,600 private restaurants offer their gastronomic services to
foreign visitors, the report notes.

Though Canada, China, Chile and Brazil are the chief sources of
tourists for Cuba, tourism authorities have indicated that tourism
from other countries like Venezuela, Germany and Italy has shown a
"notable increase," the report notes.

The report relays that this 35th International Tourism Fair has
promoted the destination of Jardines del Rey, distinguished in
Cuba by its dynamic annual 12-percent growth in the number of
visitors and its 13-percent increase in the number of available
rooms.

Cuba's tourism sector has also sought to promote the island's
attractions as a seaside resort, with more than 500 kilometers
(310 miles) of beaches, 300 of coral, and with 26 percent of its
insular shelf designated as protected marine areas, the report
notes.

These attractions were visited by more than 1.2 million tourists
over the past three years, with more than 400,000 in 2014, the
report adds.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: Hope of Wage Hike Pact Fades
------------------------------------------------
Dominican Today reports that management representatives warned
that prior to deciding on a wage increase, Law 488-08 that
reclassifies Dominican Republic's SMEs must first be complied
with, which in their view makes it difficult for the parties to
agree.

The warning come despite interest shown by the business sector,
including National Business Council (CONEP) president Rafael
Blanco, who agrees that employers should propose a fair pay
increase for workers at the National Salary Committee meeting set
for May 13, according to Dominican Today.

The report notes that Dominican Republic Industries Association
(AIRD) president Circe Almanzar insists however that labor should
first comply with Law 488-08, "and we'll then discuss a salary
adjustment that favors private sector workers."

The drawn-out talks will likely continue mired in disputes over
the percentage of the increase and disagreement over an amendment
to the Labor Code, demanded by management to slash severance pay,
but on which labor refuses to budge, the report says.

The report relays union leader Rafael Pepe-Abreu has insisted on a
30% wage increase and "will not accept any less," at the next
Committee meeting in the Labor Ministry, where the parties have
failed to advance toward an agreement the previous five times.

The report discloses Pepe-Abreu warned if that if their demands
aren't met, the unions will be forced to stage street protests and
even nationwide strikes.

                              Employers

For his part, the head of Dominican Republic's employers grouped
in COPARDOM, Joel Santos, affirmed that management will propose an
increase superior to the accumulated inflation during the last two
years, the report notes.

JAMAICA: Fiscal Balance Remains in Good Standing, Official Says
---------------------------------------------------------------
Caribbean360.com reports that Jamaica's fiscal balance remains in
good standing, with the deficit at JM$7.8 billion at the end of
the 2014/15 financial year in March, a senior official has
assured.

The figure is JM$3.6 billion better than the target of JM$11.4
billion, and can be credited to the lower interest payments on
Government of Jamaica (GOJ) bonds, and cuts in expenditure for the
period, according to co-chair of the Economic Program Oversight
Committee (EPOC) Richard Byles, according to Caribbean360.com.

"What this means is that the government has to borrow less in
order to meet all its expenditures including the payment of
interest, and so that is good, because it reduces (the) debt
build-up," the report quoted Mr. Byles as saying.

The report says that Mr. Byles added that the country
"comfortably" met its Net International Reserves.  Those reserves
stand at US$2.3 billion, almost double the target of US$1.4
billion, the report discloses.

Meanwhile, the Government collected 98 per cent of its budgeted
tax revenue for March, explaining that the shortfall in tax
revenues was a result of underperformance from company taxes and
General Consumption Tax on local purchases, the report discloses.

The EPOC official lamented that non-compliance remained a serious
issue.

"We have to get tougher in respect of tax compliance. We can't be
going down to the wire, every quarter and just barely meeting the
tax targets or missing the tax targets and having to recover by
cutting on the expenditure side; it can't continue," Mr. Byles
noted.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
Feb. 23, 2015, Fitch Ratings has affirmed Jamaica's long-term
foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) at 'B-'.
The issue ratings on Jamaica's senior unsecured foreign and local

CARIBBEAN AIRLINES: PM Proposes CAL-LIAT Merger
-----------------------------------------------
Sasha Harrinanan at Trinidad and Tobago Newsday reports that a
merger has been proposed between State-owned Caribbean Airlines
Limited (CAL) and Leeward Islands Air Transport (LIAT), whose
majority shareholders are Antigua, Barbados and St Vincent and the
Grenadines.

The proposal came May 6, from Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister
of St Vincent and the Grenadines during a High Level Round Table
discussion on day two of the "Forum on the Future of the
Caribbean" at Hyatt Regency, Port-of-Spain, according to Trinidad
and Tobago Newsday.

"We would have better service in the region, and use that as a
base to start to involve Suriname Air, Bahamas Air and so on, and
let us have a proper functioning regional airline (that) would
inter-link the islands in the region," Mr. Gonsalves declared,
much to the delight of the large audience of regional decision-
makers, the report says.

Making it clear he was speaking in his capacity as Chairman of
LIAT's shareholder governments, the always outspoken Mr. Gonsalves
said, "I would like to see a serious discussion start between the
Government of Trinidad and Tobago; the owner of CAL, and LIAT"
about his proposal, the report discloses.

Mr. Gonsalves argued that with LIAT having recently updated its
fleet with four 68-seat ATR 72-600s and four 48-seat ATR 42-600s,
both of which are turbo-prop planes, "there are possibilities for
this merger," the report says.

Mr. Gonsalves made the proposal in the presence of Trade Minister
Vasant Bharath, who acknowledged both airlines have had their
share of financial difficulties before indicating his willingness
to discuss the idea further before taking it back to Cabinet for
review, the report discloses.

"Clearly, if we are to deepen regional integration with regard to
people being able to travel or developing more trade links, then
we're going to have to have greater access to these countries. In
many instances, it's easier (and cheaper)," Mr. Bharath said, "to
get to Miami and New York than it is to get to some Caribbean
countries, which clearly is not ideal for Caribbean travel," the
report relays.

Declaring the merger proposal "has merit", Mr. Bharath added,
"it's something that we can look at to see if there are synergies
that we can utilize."

"Clearly we have to get past some of the political hurdles, but I
would certainly have a look at it and maybe speak to Prime
Minister Gonsalves in a little bit more detail and it's something
that I'm very happy to take to Cabinet after discussions and
consideration," Mr. Bharath stated, the report says.

                       About Caribbean Airlines

Caribbean Airlines Limited -- http://www.caribbean-airlines.com/
-- provides passenger airline services in the Caribbean, South
America, and North America.  The company also offers freighter
services for perishables, fish and seafood, live animals, human
remains, and dangerous goods.  In addition, it operates a duty
free store in Trinidad.  Caribbean Airlines Limited was founded in
2006 and is based in Piarco, Trinidad and Tobago.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on July
11, 2014, Trinidad and Tobago Newsday said that Caribbean Airlines
is facing another loss.  However, Finance Minister Larry Howai is
hopeful the loss could be narrowed down to less than TT$100
million, according to Trinidad and Tobago Newsday.  Mr. Howai
noted the airline industry is not the easiest and many airlines
have gone bankrupt at some point.

Citing Caribbean360.com, the TCRLA on May 20, 2013, said Minister
Howai said Caribbean Airlines Limited recorded losses estimated at
US$70 million in 2012.  In 2011, CAL had recorded losses of US43.7
million.


NATIONAL ENERGY: Attorney General's Firm Named in Fraud
-------------------------------------------------------
The Daily Observer reports that Attorney General Steadroy "Cutie"
Benjamin has declined comment in a multi-million dollar
investigation into funds missing from the National Energy Company
of Trinidad.

The Trinidad Express reported the National Energy Company (NEC)
had confirmed that the Fraud Squad, the Financial Intelligence
Unit and Ministry of Energy were investigating three fraudulent
wire transfers, amounting to TT$60 million, which were allegedly
sent to Steadroy Benjamin and Co law firm in Antigua, a bank in
Boston, and one in Dubai, according to The Daily Observer.

The money reportedly disappeared from the bank account of the
state-owned National Energy Corporation in 2011, the report notes.

But, the AG told the Trinidad Express, on April 29, although the
firm's name appears as receiving US$4,633,717 from NEC, this
transaction never occurred, the report relates.

Another Trinidad & Tobago paper, The Guardian, which also reported
on the alleged fraud, said the NEC confirmed an independent
internal investigation had found that the wire transfers were
"fraudulently prepared," the report relays.

"To date, 58 per cent of the money has been recovered from the
recipient banks in Boston and Antigua, and we are assiduously
pursuing the recovery of the outstanding 42 per cent which is
being held by the National Bank of Abu Dhabi, where the courts
have convicted the recipient," the NEC release said, the report
notes.

Mr. Benjamin, who has turned the reins of the law firm over to his
son since becoming attorney general, said his son was acting on
behalf of a client from T&T who was interested in purchasing land
in Antigua, the report says.

Documents provided to the Daily Observer by Mr. Benjamin's firm,
show that negotiations had taken place with an official from the
Trinidad Energy Company over the sale of eight acres of land at
Hatton Estate, the report adds.

Monday's edition of the TCR-LA delivers a list of indicative
prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.
Prices are obtained by TCR-LA editors from a variety of outside
sources during the prior week we think are reliable.   Those
sources may not, however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday
Bond Pricing table is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.
Prices reported are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices
for actual trades are probably different.  Our objective is to
share information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR-LA constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy
or sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR-LA editor holds some position in the
issuers' public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-LA features a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets obtained by our editors based on the
latest balance sheets publicly available a day prior to
publication.  At first glance, this list may look like the
definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.
