Dualidades de América Latina (II) Bloques y gobiernos

Por • 30 ene, 2014 • Category: Economía

Los alineamientos geopolíticos en América Latina están condicionados por la acción de Estados Unidos, que reforzó su presencia en Centroamérica y mantuvo gravitación en Sudamérica. Los recursos naturales del Sur son la prioridad de las empresas del Norte. El imperio apetece los minerales, el petrolero, el agua y los bosques de América Latina. El Departamento de Estado tiene mapeadas estas reservas y atesora datos ignorados por el resto del hemisferio. No por casualidad el 98% de las comunicaciones de la región pasan por algún centro informático estadounidense. El interés económico de la primera potencia por el resto del hemisferio no ha decaído. Se mantiene al tope en el ranking de inversores externos de la región y en el 2012 esas colocaciones fueron cinco veces superiores al quinquenio precedente. Las exportaciones al mismo destino crecen por encima de las ventas a otras zonas.

Made-in-China besieged in Latin America

Por • 25 sep, 2013 • Category: Economía

China’s investment undoubtedly injects a powerful impetus into the economic development of Latin America. But the similar nature of made-in-China and made-in-Latin America has resulted in a backlash. The manufacturing industry in some Latin American countries has been shrinking in recent years, partially due to made-in-China goods squeezing them out of the market. Unless Chinese enterprises open factories there, they will encounter more trade barriers. Globally, industrial complementarity is one of the main problems that restrain made-in-China goods from going global. The arrival of Chinese goods has had some positive impacts, like bringing down inflation. But if it harms people’s jobs, the reputation of Chinese goods, or even China itself will be affected. Employment is high on the agenda in every country. Only when Chinese goods are cheap, well-made, and drive local employment can China’s image be improved.

China loves a crisis

While much of what drives China’s OFDI continues to be the country’s pursuit of natural resources, its investments in Europe also shed light on how seriously Chinese businesses take the «go out» mandate given to them by their leaders in Beijing. China’s national champions are eager to move up the supply chain, offering higher-value goods instead of the low-priced, high-labor-content manufactured items that have characterized the country’s economy to date. Many Chinese firms also anticipate changes to European regulatory schemes that may seek to protect infant or distressed industries in Europe by establishing local content guidelines, ones impossible to get around as long as Chinese firms must export into the euro zone.

Locals indifferent to all-Chinese investments

China’s investment in Libya was made chiefly by State-owned enterprises and followed a government-supported strategic integral mode. The all-in-one-service mode meant that all the services, including construction workers, cooks and doctors, were exported from China and backed by Chinese bank loans, with no use made of local labor or services. Even the nails came from China. The domestic circumstances in Libya might have contributed to the formation of China’s characteristic style of investment there. But the model of importing everything from China may face great challenges too.
