TIMES OF THE AMERICAS ASSUMES POSITION IN GLOBAL EXPANSION

 TIMES OF THE AMERICAS ASSUMES POSITION IN GLOBAL EXPANSION
 WASHINGTON, Nov. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Times of the Americas, the only English language newspaper devoted entirely to the coverage of Latin America, the Caribbean and the Hispanic community of the United States, has begun an expansion process which will increase its circulation base within the next year to 150,000 subscribers spanning the globe.
 In an announcement made today, publisher Paul Pope, stated: "It is our intent to be able to provide our readers with the information they need to successfully position themselves in Latin America, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean by analyzing both the content and context of all issues of importance pertaining to that region. Our editorial team makes that possible with every publication of Times of the Americas."
 Executive Editor Liza Gross, a 16 year veteran of the news business, who was once a Kiplinger Fellow at Ohio State University and former managing editor of Hispanic Magazine, said: "Times of the Americas offers an in-depth look at all issues, from politics, economics, sports, art and travel to literature, theater and entertainment. It is singularly positioned to take the lead in this new era of the Americas common market. Our hemisphere-wide network of 40 correspondents gives us a unique point from which to see, hear and report what other newsgathering organizations overlook or fail to analyze. Exclusive interviews and insightful evaluations providing balanced objective views of events in the area are our trademark."
 Henry Goethals, senior staff writer and business editor, with over 40 years of reporting experience in selected international publications, stated that "Latin America is 'destined' to emerge as an important global economic power during the next 10 years, and Times of the Americas will become the definitive companion of today's business executive, government leader and academic. In order to accomplish this we have created a four-page pull-out folio of business news for the executive on the go, closely tracking financial and economic data in today's competitive environment."
 The bi-monthly publication, scheduled to begin weekly publication in January, is well on its way to achieving its goal.
 Among its current subscribers are members of the House of Lords, U.S. Congressmen and Senators, international heads of states and CEOs of multinational corporations. Next week an additional 25,000 controlled circulation will be added from Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
 Current subscribers from Australia to Panama have come to rely on Times of the Americas' thorough reporting and shrewd analysis of Latin American, Caribbean and Puerto Rican economic and business issues. Readers are also treated to penetrating interviews with people influencing policy. They know who they are and where they are coming from before they become household names.
 Times of the Americas knows that in order to successfully conduct business in a foreign country, it is inherent to understand the culture and customs relative to each, which is why it has regular sections in sports, entertainment, travel, books and the arts which highlight happenings in its areas of focused coverage. A national section on U.S. Hispanics has also been added to better cover the world's fifth largest Hispanic population, estimated to be the largest minority in America by the year 2000.
 Times of the Americas was founded 36 years ago as The Times of Havana in Havana, Cuba. In October of 1990 it was bought by Pope, a young publishing magnate with an extraordinary vision for developing newspapers, who has already implemented both structural and editorial changes. Times of the Americas is published in Washington.
 Pope will hold a press briefing on Wednesday, Dec. 4, 1991, at 11 a.m., at the Marriott Biscayne Bay hotel, Miami.
