Our firms regularly produce client newsletters, briefings and articles about a range of legal topics. Below is a selection of extracts from recent articles which we thought you might find interesting.

PAN-AMERICAN

Bilingual guide on antidumping regulations

Antidumping duties and anti-circumvention measures are naturally subject to being used as a disguised restriction on international trade to protect domestic markets. According to recent reports by the World Trade Organization, Latin American countries are among the largest users of trade remedy measures and statistics seem to suggest that Chinese products are among the more recurrent targets. This guide provides a general overview of the antidumping legal framework in the region’s most important jurisdictions. To view the complete guide, click here.

ARGENTINA

Argentina's energy infrastructure: prospects, challenges and opportunities

Although electricity consumption in Argentina has grown steadily since 1992, the country’s government has been unable to ensure that investment in installed power capacity maintains the same pace. This article addresses Argentina’s main challenges with increasing energy supply to adequately cope with consumption growth as well as the proposals for tackling the challenges and investment opportunities associated with those plans.

BOLIVIA

Bolivia, a land of opportunities: investing in real estate

China has been pursuing vast tracts of Latin America’s agricultural heartland to guarantee a steady and secure food supply and offset its growing reliance on crops from third parties. In that context, this article addresses the highlights and most important topics to be taken into consideration when making real estate investments in Bolivia. To view the article in full, click here.

BRAZIL

Infrastructure opportunities in Brazil

Numerous opportunities are presenting themselves in Brazil as the government heavily emphasizes infrastructure projects. New projects in varied sectors including energy, railroads, roads, ports and airports are scheduled to be auctioned off in the near future. Credit lines from the Brazilian heavyweight financing agent BNDES, as well as new financing structures such as “project bonds” are some of the alternatives that are most likely to be used to accomplish the Brazilian government’s ambitious infrastructure plans.

COLOMBIA

Colombian tax reform: challenges and opportunities in 2013

Colombia’s congress is currently debating a comprehensive reform of its tax legislation. This article addresses the challenges and opportunities for foreign investors in view of the expected legal landscape. To view the article in full, click here.

Colombia’s new generation of toll roads

Although Colombia has dedicated approximately 1% of its GDP to road network infrastructure over the last decade, the government intends to invest up to 3% of the GDP by 2014 in order to build an extensive road infrastructure for an estimated total investment of USD 24.4 billion. This article describes the investment opportunities associated with that goal. To view the article in full, click here.

ECUADOR

The surge of Chinese investment into Ecuador

Numerous Chinese investors have come to Ecuador in recent years to invest in a wide array of projects. Ecuador’s natural resources, coupled with a surge in public spending, have increased international contractors’ interest in many sectors, particularly in energy, infrastructure and mining. Both SOEs and Chinese private companies are involved in many of the projects that are currently underway and the significant support by the Chinese “policy” banks (China Development Bank - CDB and Export-Import Bank of China - Chexim) has helped to make many of the projects financially viable.

MEXICO

The upcoming energy reform in Mexico

Even though the Mexican energy sector has stood out in the last six decades for its remarkable oil industry, a substantial reform is required to further develop the country and boost investment and employment. This is one of the goals of the newly elected government. To view the article in full, click here.

PERU

Peru: an attractive destination for investments in infrastructure

After more than ten years of an average economic growth of 6.4%, Peru faces the challenge of improving its infrastructure in order to maintain growth, competitiveness and achieve its full economic potential. This article describes the infrastructure projects that the government of Peru is committed to carry out in the next few years to ensure that the country offers significant investment opportunities in the future. To view the article in full, click here.

URUGUAY

PPPs: the foundations for growth in Uruguay

The government of Uruguay is determined to boost investment in infrastructure to ensure sustainable growth. For this purpose, the government has a large number of projects in the pipeline awaiting final details in preparation for bidding processes (i.e. improvement and maintenance of highways, a prison, several port infrastructure projects and facilities in Punta Sayago, Rivera, Rocha’s Punta del Este, Piriapolis, Buceo, Punta Carretas, Sauce and Atlantida and the renovation of the Colonia, Salto and Rivera airports) that will most likely be carried out under the scope of the new law on public-private partnership contracts.

VENEZUELA

Venezuela’s Oil and Gas Tax Regime

Despite possessing the world’s largest proven oil reserves, Venezuela ranks eighth among oil exporters. This has led the government of Venezuela to call for additional investment to increase both output (estimates suggest that 300 billion barrels can be extracted from the Orinoco Oil Belt) and the quality of oil through upgrading technology.

The special tax regime described in this article is seen by the government of Venezuela as a mechanism to attract foreign investment to boost production, modernize gas and oil infrastructure and cover the country’s needs in connection with engineering, construction, procurement and engineering-related services.

Venezuela’s successful commercial relationship with China expands throughout Asia

Venezuela seeks foreign investment from Asian countries other than China. For this purpose, the government of Venezuela has recently signed cooperation agreements with Vietnam, South Korea and Japan in connection with the oil, gas, mining, technology, industry, infrastructure and agriculture sectors. These types of cooperation agreements benefit both parties as they provide a platform to contract with the government of Venezuela and are designed as an effective mechanism to ease the bureaucratic red tape.
