EMA of London
$200 million Solar Park in the Dominican Republic
Giga Solar trip to Dominican Republic
Dear [FIRST_NAME],
 
 
EMA of London are hosting a visit to London and the Dominican Republic for a delegation of six senior executives of the Chinese company Giga Solar, one of the largest manufacturers of solar panels in the world currently employing in excess of 20,000 staff. EMA of London recently signed a strategic alliance with Giga Solar to promote Giga Solar in Latin America.
 
In 2010 Deloitte ranked Giga Solar as the fastest growing high-tech company in Asia. Giga Solar has 8 production bases, 10 branch companies and a Photovoltaics (PV) research institute engaging in R&D and manufacture of solar cells, modules as well as PV equipment. Giga Solar has built a large 30MW grid tied power station in Sheyang, Jiangsu Province, which is currently the largest single photovoltaic power station in China funded by private capital. By the end of 2011, the power station was connected to the state grid and generated electricity.
 
Giga Solar will be welcomed by Dominican Republic Ambassador to the United Kingdom, HE Federico Cuello Camilo and will also visit PriceWaterhouse Coopers whilst being hosted by EMA of London. They will then fly on to the Dominican Republic, to explore the posibility of setting up a joint venture with Electronic J.R.C., hosted by Luciano Guido, to invest in and construct a 54.3MW Solar Park of an estimated value of $200 million.
 
The project was identified during a networking event in London hosted by the Dominican Republic Embassy last year, where high-level executives fom the Dominican Republic travelled to London to promote investment opportunities. Follow link for details
 
The Giga Solar delegation will return to London to attend LAIF 2013 (Latin American Investment Forum) at the historic Guildhall to meet with ministerial delegations from 17 Latin American countries. Full details of the event can be found on the LATIA website (www.latia.org)

Lord Mayor takes biggest-ever City delegation to Latin America

EMA of London
Lord Mayor takes biggest-ever City delegation to Latin America
Latin America is now established as key market for UK-based firms wanting to make a global impact.
Lord Mayor of London, takes biggest-ever City delegation to Latin America. Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil
 
The biggest-ever Square Mile delegation to Latin America set off on Saturday 13th October as Lord Mayor David Wootton takes over the baton for the UK’s newly-invigorated policy towards Latin America.
Following visits in 2012 by the Prime Minister, the Foreign Secretary and other UK ministers, the financial and business City’s elected Ambassador heads for Mexico, Colombia, Argentina and Brazil for two weeks of high-level business.
The Law Society, the ICAEW and the London Stock Exchange are just three elements of the delegation, which totals 30.
Lord Mayor Wootton said:
“Latin America is now established as key market for UK-based firms wanting to make a global impact.”
“BRIC country Brazil is clearly a major long-term partner but Colombia and Mexico, too, are in an exciting phase of development – and Argentina is a country with which the UK is very keen to establish deeper commercial ties.”
“Overall, the trade map for UK-based firms is changing, with more and more realizing that Latin America stands alongside the Gulf, India and China for those firms looking for opportunities.”
“The growth of new middle-classes across Latin America is matched by a growth in demand for infrastructure, business and legal advice, for financial services of all kinds – and project advice. Additionally, many of these countries are also looking to London when trying to decide on a platform for their globalising ambitions.”

Time for better ties with Latin America
China’s economic ties with Latin America and the Caribbean need further development as the global economy weakens, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences said in a “yellow book” on 4th May.
Bilateral relations have moved beyond initial contacts based on trade to more complex interactions such as investment and financial cooperation, the government think tank said.
In just eight years, China’s importance as a trade partner for Latin America has increased significantly, said Osvaldo Rosales, director of the international trade and integration division of the United Nations’ Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean.
“China is displacing the European Union as the second-largest trade partner of countries [in the region] and it’s more important for South America’s growth than the United States,” he said.

China and IDB set up $1bn Latin American fund
 
China is setting up a $1bn fund with the Inter-American Development Bank to make equity investments in Latin America, in a new move into financing in a region where it is already a major trade partner.
The fund, which should start operations this year, is a partnership between China’s state-run Export-Import Bank and the IDB. Each side will put in $150m and the two banks are currently selecting asset management firms to manage the investments and raise funds from the markets, the IDB says.
“We are looking to focus on areas where Latin America has enormous deficiencies, like infrastructure,” Luis Alberto Moreno, IDB president, told the Financial Times in Uruguay at the bank’s annual meeting. “It’s something that is quite novel and it is a route which we hope to continue to open up with the Chinese authorities.”

Davos 2012: Who’s afraid of China?
Davos 2012: Who's afraid of China?
Many in the West worry about being overwhelmed by the sheer size and strength of the Chinese economy.

Mention the topic in polite conversation, and chances are that you’ll hear complaints about dumping cheap products, stealing jobs and grabbing resources.
If you talk to politicians and economists, you may hear complaints that China is keeping its currency undervalued. There are worries about the size of its foreign currency reserves – currently approaching a massive $4tn.
So much economic power creates fear and hostility, especially in countries like the United States during an election year, warns Richard Levin, president of Yale University.
Those worries are only bound to increase.

Latin America beckons, India's trade may reach $50 billion by 2014
India’s trade with Latin America could go up to $50 billion by 2014 on the back of projected high economic growth in both the regions, said a senior government official.

“The region (Latin America) is going to be a regular source of imports of crude oil, edible oil, minerals, timber and other products which India needs to sustain its high growth. Agribusiness, food processing, energy and mining are the growth areas of Latin America and the Indian companies should target them for trade and investment,” said R. Viswanathan, India’s ambassador to Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay.

At present, the Latin American region accounts for 4 per cent of India’s trade. Two-way trade between India and Latin America was recorded $23 billion in 2010. It included $9 billion of India’s exports to Latin America and imports of $14 billion.

Brazil overtakes UK as sixth-largest economy
Brazil overtakes UK as sixth-largest economy
UK relegated to seventh place in world league of leading economies in 2011, according to team of economists.

Brazil has overtaken the UK to become the world’s sixth-largest economy, according to a team of economists. The banking crash of 2008 and the subsequent recession has relegated the UK to seventh place in 2011, behind South America’s largest economy, which has boomed on the back of exports to China and the far east.

Russia and India are expected to benefit from a surge in growth over the next 10 years and push the UK into eighth place. Like most economies, India is struggling with high inflation and slowing growth, but its highly educated workforce and skills in growth areas from IT and services to engineering will push the economy into fifth place. After a decade of selling oil and gas to Europe and other parts of Asia, Russia will be at number four.

Africa rising
After decades of slow growth, Africa has a real chance to follow in the footsteps of Asia
Africa rising | After decades of slow growth, Africa has a real chance to follow in the footsteps of Asia
The shops are stacked six feet high with goods, the streets outside are jammed with customers and salespeople are sweating profusely under the onslaught. But this is not a high street during the Christmas-shopping season in the rich world. It is the Onitsha market in southern Nigeria, every day of the year. Many call it the world’s biggest. Up to 3m people go there daily to buy rice and soap, computers and construction equipment. It is a hub for traders from the Gulf of Guinea, a region blighted by corruption, piracy, poverty and disease but also home to millions of highly motivated entrepreneurs and increasingly prosperous consumers.
Over the past decade six of the world’s ten fastest-growing countries were African. In eight of the past ten years, Africa has grown faster than East Asia, including Japan. Even allowing for the knock-on effect of the northern hemisphere’s slowdown, the IMF expects Africa to grow by 6% this year and nearly 6% in 2012, about the same as Asia.
The commodities boom is partly responsible. In 2000-08 around a quarter of Africa’s growth came from higher revenues from natural resources. Favourable demography is another cause. With fertility rates crashing in Asia and Latin America, half of the increase in population over the next 40 years will be in Africa. But the growth also has a lot to do with the manufacturing and service economies that African countries are beginning to develop. The big question is whether Africa can keep that up if demand for commodities drops.

Traders prepare for Chávez gold transfer
Bullion traders are preparing for one of the largest transfers of physical gold in recent history after Hugo Chávez, Venezuela’s president, ordered the country’s gold reserves to be returned to Caracas.

Venezuela’s central bank is the world’s 15th largest holder of gold, with 365.8 tonnes, of which some 211 tonnes, worth $12.3bn, are held overseas, according to a proposal for the transfer from the Venezuelan central bank and finance ministry.

Gold traders and logistics specialists said the transfer of 211 tonnes of gold – about 17,000 standard 400-ounce bars – would represent one of the largest moves of physical gold in decades. While billions of dollars worth of gold is traded every day, only a tiny proportion of it moves from vaults in London, New York and Zurich.

China is now Latin America’s biggest partner
BRIC partners Dilma Rousseff Brazil's president and Hu Jintao her Chinese counterpart
In 2006, when Eike Batista opened Rio de Janeiro’s finest Chinese restaurant, his fortune barely made the Forbes rich list. Now, the Brazilian oil and mining magnate is the world’s eighth richest man.

Mr Batista’s estimated $30bn fortune has grown alongside Brazil’s rising trade links with China. It is also a testament to Mr Batista’s business nous that his Rio de Janeiro eatery has become a handy place to entertain his Chinese business partners.
Latin America, like Rio de Janeiro’s dining scene, has changed – and it is largely thanks to China.
A region once known for instability has sailed through the global financial crisis. Poverty is falling, the middle classes booming, and asset markets bubbling.

This is due to a spectacular expansion of commodity- based trade. Over the past decade, fast-growing emerging countries, be they in Asia, India or Africa, have shown a near insatiable demand for the commodities that Latin America has in such abundance, whether Argentine soya, Brazilian iron ore, Chilean copper or Peruvian gold.

Brazil seeks to triumph in new Great Game for Africa
When Vale, the world’s largest iron ore miner, announced its latest foreign acquisition this month, no one was surprised by the location of the target company: Africa.
The $1.1bn offer for Metorex, a small Johannesburg listed miner whose largest asset is a copper mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo, extends Brazil’s influence in a continent with which it has close historic and cultural ties.
So important has Africa become for companies such as Vale that the continent now accounts for half as much of Brazil’s international commerce as China. “Brazil-China trade is today worth more than $50bn, while Africa as a whole is more than $25bn – so it’s significant in its own right,” says Brad Koen, the São Paulo-based managing director and global head of business development at South Africa’s Standard Bank.
