Chancay: The new 3.5 B mega shipping port being built in Peru to service South America’s most rich regions

And who is building it? The Chinese, of course. When the US abandoned the region decades ago, they filled the vacuum. The $3.5-billion deepwater port, set to start operations late this year, will provide China with a direct gateway to the resource-rich region. Over the last 10 years, Beijing has unseated the United States as the largest trade partner for South America, devouring its soybeans, corn and copper. The port, majority-owned by Chinese state-owned firm Cosco Shipping, will be the first controlled by…

Those smaller investors ( USD 70,000 to USD 250,000 ) seeking exposure to tangible assets with strong cash yields and low volatility have found it nearly impossible to get…

A more positive outlook for our region is a welcome development

Argentine President Milei’s radical change in direction after 70 years of Peronism is being watched inside the country (the poor and middle classes suffer most of the pain of change) and by the rest of the investment world as the changes occur. So far, the response has been positive, even by those most affected by the changes. Success will likely cause neighbouring countries to follow suit, attracting a flood of investment capital looking for a home in a troubled world. Europe, the US and the Middle East…

After an intense crisis, Argentine dairy farms embrace increased profitability

The sector, it is recovering after a sharp drop in production in June, and prices are now “reasonably good.” Recovery is underway. After a deep, productive crisis caused by the drought, the winds of change are blowing for the Argentine dairy industry. After several months of negative dairy activity numbers, starting in June, producers expect a slight improvement. Last year, it was worth remembering that dozens of producers forcibly sold dairy herds, even in full production, in a difficult situation…

WHAT IS A SHAREHOLDERS’ AGREEMENT? Shareholders’ agreements are like rules that record how shareholders will work together and make decisions. What are the initial…

Argentine Businessmen agree with President Javier Milei: they believe that the worst is over, seeing a rebound in sales

They have noticed an improvement in the food sector, from noodles, oils, coffee, and rice to meat. The dollar and the possibility of the “V” recovery. The latest official data leave no room for optimism: a March economic activity collapse and the worst forecasts for the following months. At that time, the INDEC EMAE marked a drop of 8.4% year-on-year and a contraction compared to February. There are still no official records of what happened during April. Private consulting firms measured…

FATCA – America’s Tax Rort is Exposed

The FATCA, or the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, is a one-sided law that forces other countries to enforce US tax laws. If they fail to do so, they’re effectively locked out of US markets and the US dollar—the world’s reserve currency (at least for now). FATCA imposes a 30% withholding tax on interest, dividends, rents, and similar payments leaving the US. The only way to avoid the tax is for foreign financial institutions (FFIs) to act as unpaid IRS informants. Withholding occurred some years ago,…

Argentine President Javier Milei gets himself on Time’s front cover

Before anyone jumps to any conclusions about why, it has nothing to do with whether he is good or bad as a president. Presidents like Hitler, Nixon, and Trump would have never otherwise appeared on the cover. It is purely because he is an icon for the libertarian movement of our times. Still considered by the majority the country’s economic saviour, President Javier Milei now finds himself in the unenviable position of despising his new office. The opulent Casa Rosada, with its lavish blue chair and intricately…

Agriculture is tipped to boom in South America

South American agriculture is set to boom. Enterprising investors, who’ve long been told South America is to become the ‘food bowl of Asia,’ should not be surprised. Asia’s demand for consumables will grow for decades to come, fuelled by unprecedented growth in its middle-class population, rising prosperity, and globalisation. The latest research has identified five megatrends in South American agriculture over the next 15 to 20 years. The critical megatrends identified by the research include: In a…

Argentina: What is happening in the land of the chainsaw? –

With the roar of a chainsaw, he has accomplished what many deemed impossible: Argentina’s first budget surplus in 16 years. Gone are the days of money-printing schemes to cover debts and bloated public subsidies for fuel and transportation. In a bold move, the new president has slashed thousands of state jobs (25,000 plus to date), frozen public construction projects, and bravely devalued the country’s currency. This may have weakened the peso’s purchasing power domestically, but it was a…

Argentina now has several options for those seeking home mortgages at attractive rates

Who can access mortgage credit, and what is the operation for purchasing homes through the new banking options (Andina)? The reintroduction of mortgage loans in Argentina revolutionized the real estate market. There are already 13 banks that offer them, including public entities such as Nación and Ciudad, private entities such as Hipotecario (the first to launch them) and Supervielle, and provincial entities such as those of Córdoba and Corrientes, among others. The schemes tied to the UVA usually propose…
