Telecommunications Outlook 2015: Will Mexico's Watershed Moment Steal the Show?

The World Cup came and went, and despite successfully catering for the communications needs of broadcasters and visitors, Brazil appears to be just as concerned with expanding service coverage as it was before the event. And it's not just Brazil where there's no standing still. Our telecom sector Outlook 2015 report highlights several trends that will ratchet forward in a significant way next year.

Building a regional stock exchange, piece by piece

What is MILA? A marketing initiative? An order routing system for cross-border trading? With almost three years past since its official launch, MILA, as the project to integrate the Chilean, Peruvian and Colombian stock markets is known, remains in a very preliminary stage of development. Various challenges must be addressed before the exchanges achieve a deeper level of integration. But there are several factors operating in its favor, including the possible entry of the Mexican bourse and the momentum of the Pacific Alliance, an economic integration initiative involving Mexico and the three MILA countries. This report will examine what MILA has achieved so far and where it's heading.

Mining Survey 2014: Accepting the new reality

BNamericas' Mining Survey 2014 shows deteriorating sentiment across most indicators, reflecting players' acknowledgement of the new reality facing the sector - softer metals prices, poor access to capital, lower spending, reduced exploration activity. In terms of investment climate, Argentina has emerged as the worst ranked nation. Chile remains 'the best,' but more fragile as a growing contingent believes the climate could worsen in the coming year.

Oil and Gas Survey 2014: Opportunities abound

While the percentage of survey respondents who said Latin America is a good place for the oil and gas business dipped this year (from 80% to 70%), some 80% said Latin America will be increasingly important as an oil and gas supplier in the coming decade, indicating that while there might be some cause for concern in 2014, the longer term picture remains attractive. This is underpinned by the amount of resources in place, encouraging governments in some cases, and by strong, stable oil prices. Colombia continues to be seen favorably as a destination for oil and gas explorers. Mexico has risen in the estimation of survey takers. Argentina too is gaining significant interest for its unconventional potential, and survey takers were decidedly more favorable about the country this year than last.

Underwriting Latin America's infrastructure build-out

The last few years of economic growth in Latin America have been accompanied by increasing need for infrastructure. As that growth begins to slow, addressing the region's persistent infrastructure gap has become even more pressing if its countries are to increase their competitiveness and build on recent development gains. Enter surety bonds. Although it represents just a small slice of the regional insurance market, this specialty product is an attractive tool for the governments region looking to underwrite the contract risk associated with these generally large-scale projects. The Latin American surety industry is also reaping the benefits a global shift away from bank guarantees as the go-to method of securing contracts.

Mexico: Plentiful funds, but improving infrastructure is no small challenge

Mexico has launched an ambitious investment plan for 2013-2018 to build new highways, roads, bridges, and to develop passenger and cargo trains, articulated urban transport systems, bridges, and airports. Although the proportion of private sector investment in the plan is small compared with public investment, it is estimated that private sector investment in roads alone should be around US$3.3 billion.

Outlook 2014 Infrastructure: Closing the infrastructure gap

Latin America is a long way from investing the amounts that multilateral organizations say are needed to close the infrastructure gap that limits the region's competitiveness. However, in 2014, there will be new business opportunities for global and regional players as a result of the various infrastructure programs launched in countries like Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Chile. The local capital markets and particularly the pension funds are expected to see much greater participation in these projects.

Chinese investment surges in Latin America

Chinese mining investments in Latin America have increased significantly in the last 10 years, accompanied by economic liberalization policies between the countries in this region and the Asian giant. China's need for raw materials to satisfy domestic demand has driven it to seek opportunities abroad. Latin America, for its part, has huge mining potential, which makes it attractive to China, the second largest economy in the world. What Latin American countries have the largest Chinese mining investment? What are the most significant projects? What companies are investing in the region?

Getting back on track: The resurgence of railways in Latin America

The commodity boom has been driving growth in Latin America and that has had a knock-on effect in the rail sector since trains are good at handling high flows of point-to-point traffic. Higher oil costs and tighter environmental regulations have also boosted the competitive advantages of railroads, which have also become more efficient thanks to new locomotive technology. The contrast with the bleak 1980s couldn't be clearer. But trains are still not where they were a century ago and freight is the king of the tracks while passenger services have dwindled. Following the concessions and privatizations of the 1990s, passenger services were massively downsized or disappeared almost entirely in countries all over the region. However, the two economic powerhouses of the region, Brazil and Mexico, are finally putting trains back on the map

Mining in Mexico: In its prime

Mexico's mining industry is in its prime. It currently has major exploration and development projects underway, it has managed to attract investments of over US$25 billion in the last five years, and 70% of its territory is still unexplored. Many of the companies driving the local industry are medium-sized and junior companies, most of them Canadian. Who are the main players in the Mexican mining industry? What are the major projects in development and planned for the future? What will happen if a mining law reform, aimed at incorporating a royalty on mining production, is eventually approved?

Oil refining in Latin America: Sluggish progress amid rising costs

Amid a shifting global oil market and ambitious plans in China and Asia to expand refining capacities, Latin America stands out for its inability to make progress with implementation of new refining infrastructure to match its plans to increase oil production. The region's main producers all face numerous political and structural obstacles that are preventing them from making as much progress as they would like, which means they are unlikely to fulfill their minimum goals of self-sufficiency in refined fuels any time soon. In fact, only Brazil has significant concrete projects in the works and even they have been affected by delays and cost overruns, as have the few other projects planned for the region.

The year of Pemex

Mexico needs a new model for its oil industry, in which private investment plays an increasingly important role. The new government is working on an energy reform that moves forward in this area and which it will have to defend before congress. The question, however, is how far this liberalization will go. What is clear is that Pemex will continue to be the backbone of the sector.

Consumer Credit in Latin America

The Latin American consumer credit market has expanded rapidly over the past 10 years. A combination of strong and stable economic growth, prudent policies and vastly improved investor confidence over the past decade have provided a fertile environment for the market, and we have seen greater access to loans leading to significant changes in Latin American consumption trends. While Chile and Brazil have the most developed markets in the region, the greatest growth potential lies in countries such as Peru, Colombia and Mexico, where economic growth prospects for 2013 and beyond are very positive, and the markets remain vastly underpenetrated.

Mining Readers' Survey for 2013

The year 2012 will not be remembered fondly by the Latin American mining industry as the post-crisis optimism in 2010 and 2011 faded in the face of operational and macroeconomic challenges that resulted in declining profits and share prices. The BNamericas Mining Survey 2013 reflects the challenging environment that miners have been experiencing, with industry players less optimistic than in recent years and more concerned about socio-political risks than before. Responses for critical factors such as metals prices, access to financing and exploration activity were notably less positive than in the 2010 and 2011 surveys, although countries such as Chile continue to receive positive evaluations despite the heightened sensation of risk.
