    "At present" vs "Currently"

    Dear all,

    I do not understand how or why is it better to write:

    1. At present, every working age Colombian chooses initially between this and that....

    or

    2. Currently, every working age Colombian chooses initially between this and that....

    Could you please explain me?

    Regards,


    Juan

    Re: "At present" vs "Currently"

    Presently and currently mean the same, but your sentence makes the "at present" the better choice. It means: At the present time, (a certain option is offered)
