Brasile

Sempre maggior interesse da parte degli investitori stranieri.

Dal Brasile arrivano segnali positivi. La crisi economica sembra in via di superamento e agli investitori stranieri si aprono nuovi scenari e si presentano grandi opportunità. Il Paese sta portando a termine varie riforme: molte le privatizzazioni al varo, una maggiore trasparenza nelle fasi di aggiudicazione degli appalti e l’approvazione della riforma del diritto del lavoro, che entrerà in vigore entro fine anno.

Ricordiamo che su scala mondiale il Brasile si classifica al primo posto per l’esportazione di prodotti come lo zucchero, il caffè, derivati da macellazione, soia. Si classifica al terzo posto per la fruizione di servizi relativi alla cura della persona, per i servizi informatici, per gli acquisti on-line. Sempre nelle prime posizioni nel mercato della farmaceutica e degli elettrodomestici.

A dispetto della recente crisi economica, i settori dell’energia rinnovabile e della sicurezza digitale registrano una crescita costante. Il Paese, vastissimo, risponde benissimo a tutte le innovazioni tecnologiche.

Sicuramente alcuni problemi dell’economia brasiliana sono ancora presenti: il debito pubblico, insostenibile, un Governo che ancora non ha dimostrato adeguatezza verso le non più procastinabili riforme, un sistema tributario complicato. A tutt’oggi permane il timore che le aziende straniere si ritraggano di fronte ai molti adempimenti amministrativi e legali necessari ad avviare un’attività.

NLB Bank Sale/Meeting with the European Commission

The Slovenian Government is committed to sell NLB by the end of 2017 in the environment of the restructuring plan that served as a basis for the European Commission’s approval of state aid to the bank in the 2013 bailout. So there is no official request by the Government to the European Commission to get an extension (as the Slovenian media have been telling for months).
This is at least what was said by Vraničar Erman who took over as Slovenia’s finance minister in September.
She  and the European commissioner agreed on continued close cooperation to ensure that the commitments were respected to the maximum extent possible.
The Finance Ministry points that the goal of selling the NLB (after it also Abanka) was to maximize the return of funds that the state invested in the repair of both banks.
The minister said Slovenia today did not propose an extension of the deadline for the sale of NLB, but continued with the planned procedures and there is the will do achieve such goal without any extension of the agreed deadline.
The above also considering that for an extension of the deadline the European commission would certainly ask a straining of other commitments in exchange.
After the meeting the European Commission’s comment was that the commitment of the Slovenian authorities remain that to put forward the restructuring plans of NLB until December 2017, and that will monitor and remain in contact with the Slovenian representatives.
