Challenge to Guzmán: agricultural dollars could be held back after BCRA measures

Many producers that still keep soybeans in reserve prefer to tie the sales rhythm to the strict financial needs to pay their expenses and commitments of the productive cycle. In addition, the market value of corn has recovered and is attractive for sale, with cereal business being favored. It must be understood that the oilseed is a natural saving vehicle for the producer since it serves as a unit of measure (rural rents, inputs, etc., are valued in quintals), as a means of exchange (the producer can from buying capital goods until paying the annual lease in grain) and value reserve, especially in upward contexts ”, they detail from the Rosario Stock Exchange.

Meanwhile, the agro-export companies also received the new BCRA provisions like a bucket of cold water. It is that those large multinationals and local capital companies, which have heavy debts in dollars and which in some cases have been taken to make investments in infrastructure in Argentine ports, will now only be able to buy 40% of the amount of their short-term debt in the official market, the rest must be renegotiated with foreign credit. The fact of the matter is that international banks are not overly enthusiastic about lending to the weakened and changing Argentine economy, as explained by the sector.

Against this background, the chamber that brings together companies in the sector, CIARA-CEC, with its owner at the head, Gustavo Idígoras, who is even one of the promoters of the Argentine Agroindustrial Council and he met weeks ago with President Alberto Fernández, to bring him his proposal to boost exports from the countryside, he kept a rare low profile during the last week and after knowing the new provisions of the BCRA. According to what Ámbito could find out, the agro-exporters are trying to bring positions closer to the head of the Central Bank, Miguel Ángel Pesce. Far from criticism, the industrialists in the field seek to show the Government that soy crushing companies need not only a new withholding scheme, which encourages shipments with added value, but also less restrictive measures to access the exchange market.

Another item that is opening, and no less important, also related to the grain market, is that according to the new resolutions, the dollars destined to pre-financing of exports will have as a priority the SMEs. Meanwhile, multinationals and Argentine flag companies that regularly use these financial tools will have to seek credit abroad. The truth is that for a while now and perhaps more exacerbated locally with the default of Vicentin, the international banking system began to hold back dollars for this type of operation.

In this frame, Roberto Urquia, President of General Deheza Oil Can recently stated on a radio station: “We agro-exporters have no way of retaining dollars. In commodities, oils, flours, soybeans, soybean oil, peanuts, etc. 15 days after loading the ship, the dollars have to be paid to the Central Bank ”.

According to Urquía, the parallel dollars “are a little overvalued. The problem is not the dollar but the 33% withholdings on soybeans. By easing the withholdings a bit, the gap between dollars could be narrowed. It is easy to say it, but it is not easy to do it, because they would have already done it ”, he remarked.

The reality is that from the producer’s speculation to obtain a higher price for his harvest and together with the inconveniences of the agro-export sector to access the official dollar, an explosive cocktail is presented that would lead to the liquidation of currencies to a worse scenario of which was speculated only a month ago. According to the projections of the consultant Pablo Adreani, this year it would reach US $ 20,240 million, showing a decline of 14.6% compared to the previous year when it added US $ 23,714 million, but this number could suffer even more and that it would be evident in the last part of the year, just at the moment when the Government was betting on a reactivation of exports.

SBS provided greater facilities for debtors in trouble due to pandemic | News


By Malena Miranda

Borrowers can reschedule loans at a second time, reported the head of the Superintendency of Banking, Insurance and AFP (SBS), Socorro Heysen.

In an interview with the newspaper El Peruano, the official pointed out that the proposals to freeze debts are not necessary.

As of July this year, some financial entities showed losses. How to improve those results?

– It was predictable. The regulatory measures and facilities of the Superintendency of Banking, Insurance and AFP (SBS) made it possible for financial entities to reschedule debts, without deteriorating the credit rating of their clients and without constituting provisions at the time.

But, as the months progressed, we noticed that they recovered very few credits, such as what happened in May and June, because users had grace periods.

In July and August these credit recoveries increased significantly. There are entities that can show losses, but they also have clear options to solve those problems.

It was possible to observe debtors who never stopped paying, and others who had a couple of months of grace and then were able to meet their obligations.

– Are there any rescheduled debtors that show payment difficulties?

–In the financial system there are other debtors who will need more grace periods and will demand more work from the entities and, perhaps, some type of interest rate reduction.

The way to implement solutions for clients is in phases, which is why the SBS published the changes to the market conduct management rules, which came into effect at the end of August.

This norm grants financial companies minimum standards of work with users with payment problems, offering them relief alternatives.

These models, which are already in force, are comparable to those of European countries in the crisis of 2009 and 2010.

–What other measures will you implement in the SBS for the debtors?

–The SBS constantly reviews the standards and works with the supervised entities to solve these problems. In addition, we ask them to deliver a loan portfolio management plan to ensure that they deal with the difficulties of non-payment of their debtors. Relevant situation from the point of view of solvency.

Later, we will probably ask finance companies for a self-assessment of their capital needs to determine if that equity is sufficient, or we will ask shareholders for additional capital.

–Is it possible that a debtor can reschedule his credits again?

– Borrowers with normal ratings and potential problems (CPP) before the pandemic agreed to reprofile their loans on a massive scale for the first time; however, they can have a second reprogramming individually.

In some cases, loans could even be rescheduled more times to refine the payment situation, but not indefinitely because this would no longer be good for the sustainability of the entities.

– Could a refinanced loan be rescheduled?

–As a first point, a debtor with a recently refinanced loan cannot access a debt rescheduling, since it already has a deterioration in its rating and to reschedule debts it must have a good payment behavior and evaluation prior to the pandemic.

However, it is possible that a user with a loan refinanced for quite some time, and who has a good repayment behavior in that period, and even improved his score, could reschedule his refinanced debt.

– When would you notice a deterioration in the quality of the portfolio?

–The delinquency will be revealed gradually in the coming months. Towards the end of the year and early 2021, we should already have a clearer idea of ​​the situation.

The important thing is to maintain technical work that preserves the stability of the financial system and not take generalized measures that could disturb the development of the situation itself.

The congressional proposals to freeze debts would cause significant damage to financial stability and savers, as well as to the payment culture, the economy and the public treasury.

That is why we repeatedly express our disagreement with these initiatives.

Changes to the rule

The head of the SBS informed that among the additional norms that they will issue is the norm on modifications to the licensing regulations, mergers and acquisitions.

This standard clearly defines the expectations of the SBS regarding shareholders, managers, business models, among others, as well as new entities or acquirers, he said.

“It gives more predictability to the admission process regarding requirements and time,” he added.

He stressed that in the guarantee programs that the Government could approve, the SBS provides regulatory flexibility as it does with the Mype Business Support Fund (FAE-Mype) and the Reactiva Peru Program.

Data

Loan rescheduling reached 124.059 million soles as of August 28, 32% of the financial system portfolio.

Financial entities rescheduled about eight million loans. Thus, 49% of all loans were rescheduled.

The largest rescheduling is in small business, consumer and micro-business loans.

Figures

54% of 2018 profits were capitalized by financial entities last year, according to the SBS.

76% of the 2019 earnings were reinvested by financial entities during 2020.

75% of the banks’ profits in 2019 were capitalized this year.

100% of the profits of the municipal savings and credit banks in 2019 were reinvested this year.

Iván Duque calls not to promote agglomerations – Government – Politics


President Iván Duque made a call this Friday in his ‘Prevention and Action’ program so that people continue to take care of themselves, complying with biosafety protocols, and thus contain the spread of the coronavirus.

“Here no one can lower their guard, be very careful to encourage crowds and relax the use of masks,” said the head of state.

(Can read: There are already more than 30 million diagnosed with coronavirus in the world)

The head of state added that when citizens relax with the use of masks, or there are crowds, “they run extremely high risks.”

This message comes hours after it became known that unions, centralized in the National Unemployment Committee, called a new mobilization scheduled for September 21 throughout the country.

“The epidemic continues, we must be careful, avoid crowds and have social distancing,” said Health Minister Fernando Ruiz.

In another aspect, the Minister of Housing, Jonathan Malagón, assured that all the programs announced in the Government to help those who want to buy a home are advanced, since thousands of people have already received these benefits.

In fact, this Friday the first No VIS (Social Interest Housing) subsidy was awarded, out of the 100,000 that will be available until 2022. Erika Villamil was this first beneficiary.

(In context: See how to access the subsidy to buy a home in the middle class)

During his speech, the Minister also highlighted five points of what he projects as the National Government’s legacy for the sector. The first related, precisely, to the 200 thousand subsidies, 100 thousand for VIS, of which 15 thousand have already been managed, and the remaining 100 thousand for No VIS that Erika Villamil ‘inaugurated’ as the first beneficiary.

San Juan improved its fiscal guideline for the close of fiscal year 2020

Official projections on the behavior of San Juan’s fiscal accounts in the pandemic improved significantly, to the point that the Uñaquista government believes that there are more and more possibilities to dispense with taking a loan. In April, when the province and the country were stopped by the impact of the coronavirus, the annual red that was calculated amounted to $ 14,000 million, but a series of local and national variables suggest that the fall in resources can be stopped and that the deficit does not exceed $ 2 billion. The same, in the Treasury they warn that there is a lot of volatility due to the pandemic.

The pandemic severely affects all the world’s economies and not to mention Argentina’s, which is dragging a structural crisis that leads to an increasingly severe national deficit. The coup in the province is also being felt and for the first time in more than a decade, there is a concrete possibility that the fiscal accounts will end the year in the red.

When the coronavirus began to take its toll, the province planned to pocket $ 14 billion less than it had budgeted until December. However, the Treasury now estimates that the delay will end up being much lower.

The change has several explanations. On the one hand, the provincial economy is showing signs of recovery from the release of most of the activities. On the other hand, until August, the Uñaquista administration was successful in its mission to contain spending and managed to lower expenditures by $ 5 billion.

The other fundamental factor is the national context. Although the rate of flexibility of economic activities is lower than in San Juan, the Minister of Finance, Marisa López, said that the measures that the Nation is dictating to reactivate consumption will increase the collection and improve the co-participation that trickles down to the provinces.

In the portfolio that manages public funds, they understand that if they continue to adjust spending and national measures work, the decline in resources will not be as sharp as in the first part of the year and that the red in December could be about $ 2 billion. “That is the equivalent of our floating debt and it could be paying off in January 2021,” said the Uñaquista bishop.

With a manageable deficit, Sergio Uñac’s management is betting on not having to make use of the authorization given by Deputies to take on a debt of up to $ 8,000 million in order to cover the shortfall that accumulates in this year. López said that “we are making every effort and it is likely that we will not have to directly request the loan.”

Optimism was accompanied by restraint. The Finance Minister herself warned that everything is subject to what happens with the pandemic. An eventual outbreak of cases could cause a new downturn in the economy, an increase in public investment in health and deepen the deficit scenario.

COVID-19 in China: Forced to take unapproved medicines

A woman uigur middle-aged woman told the Associated Press that she was detained during the peak of the COVID-19 in China and that she was forced to take medicine that made her feel weak and made her nauseous. She and other women detained in her cell had to undress once a week and guards sprayed them and their cells with a disinfectant, she said.

“It was boiling,” the woman said in a telephone interview from Xinjiang, without giving her name for fear of retaliation. “My hands were damaged, I was skinning myself.”

This new confinement, which has been going on for 45 days, came after 826 new cases were reported in Xinjiang since mid-July. It was the largest outbreak in China since the beginning.

In other parts of China, strong lockdowns were put in place, especially in Wuhan, the city where the virus was first detected. COVID-19. But in Wuhan there were 50,000 cases, many more than in Xinjiang, and measures as severe as forcing people to take traditional medicines were not taken, and people were generally allowed to leave their homes to exercise or buy food.

Another outbreak of more than 300 cases in Beijing in early June did not produce as many measures, and quarantines were only put in place in a few neighborhoods for a few weeks. In Xinjiang, however, more than half of its 25 million people are facing lockdown that stretches hundreds of kilometers from the center of the outbreak in China’s provincial capital Urumqi, according to an AP review of government and government reports. state media.

The confinement of Xinjiang is enforced with a large surveillance team that led to the arrest of millions of uyghurs, Kazakhs and members of other ethnic minorities in China in the past three years, including many arrested without trial.

After being detained for a month, the woman uigur she was released and locked up in her home. Once a day, she said, people from the neighborhood would visit her and force her to drink traditional medicines from bottles without labels, telling her that she would be arrested if she did not take them.

Authorities say the measures are for the well-being of all residents of Xinjiang, where the government has struggled for decades to control the uyghurs from the area, who resent the heavy hand of Beijing.

Not all measures related to the new outbreak of COVID-19 target mostly Muslim ethnic minorities such as the uigur. They also cover the majority have. This month thousands of people complained on social media about what they describe as too extreme measures. Photos circulated of people handcuffed to bars and of house doors in which metal bars are placed. In response to criticism, authorities eased restrictions somewhat last week, allowing people to go for walks without leaving their homes.

A merchant have told the AP that he was confined in mid-July despite analysis of the COVID-19 They tested negative and still won’t let it out. He indicated that when he complained on the networks, his publications were deleted and he was told to keep quiet.

“The worst is the silence,” he wrote on the Weibo portal in mid-August. “After being silent for a long time, you plunge into an abyss of hopelessness.”

“I’ve been in this room for so long that I don’t even remember how long. I just want to forget, ”he wrote a few days later.

He is also forced to take traditional medicines, including one from the same unlabeled bottle as the woman uigur, according to photos the AP saw. He pointed out that they force him to take lianhua qingwen, an herbal medicine that the United States health authorities confiscate saying that it is not true that it helps contain the COVID-19.

Since the beginning of the outbreak, the Chinese government has been promoting traditional medicines even though their effectiveness against the virus has not been proven. COVID-19. The application of these measures varies and not all residents are required to ingest them. The woman uigur says he has flushed the liquid and some pills down the toilet. An individual have whose parents live in Xinjiang told the AP that its use is voluntary for them.

The man, who asked not to be named for fear of retaliation, said the measures are “extreme” but understandable.

“There is no other way to control this epidemic,” he said.

Covid19 | How the curfew applies in Soacha – Bogotá


“Today I am more concerned about employment in Soacha than about the pandemic,” these were the words of Juan Carlos Saldarriaga, mayor of Soacha, who announced new measures with the aim of starting to boost the economy.

One of the decisions was to lift the curfew that was in force during the day on weekends. Now this measure will only apply from 8:00 pm to 4:00 am from Monday to Sunday in order to avoid family gatherings and clandestine parties.

The ‘peak and ID’ will also change. “We went from four daily identification numbers to six, so now they will be able to go out six daily identification numbers to buy, to make their returns, because we have to reactivate the economy,” said Saldarriaga.

Also there will be a new schedule so that people can go out to make purchases and procedures. This will be from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm

Although it is still unknown how the new ‘pico y cédula’ will apply. The municipal mayor announced that This Saturday, August 22, people whose identification number ends in an even digit will be able to leave, and on Sunday, August 23, those who have an identification number ending in an odd number may do so.

“The measures we have taken are timely, especially due to the good behavior of the soachunos when they remain in their homes during isolation. Today we have a figure close to 2,000 active cases and a hospitalization rate of 39%, for that reason the schedule for carrying out errands and shopping in the city was extended one more hour “explained the president.

Why does California have low COVID-19 numbers in the US drama? – Telemundo 52

LOS ANGELES – Early confinement and other prevention measures promoted by the state government have allowed California, with more than 40 million inhabitants and some 300 deaths from COVID-19, to become an example of how to deal with the coronavirus pandemic in United States.

So far, the nation’s largest metropolis, Los Angeles, with more than 10 million citizens, has recorded fewer than 6,000 cases and 132 deaths, far from New York City, which has 8 and a half million inhabitants. and it has confirmed some 130,000 infections and more than 4,000 deaths.

“California has been doing quite well in the COVID-19 pandemic, with a relatively low number of infected per 100,000 people and a low death rate,” said Professor Karin Michels, head of the Department of Epidemiology at the School of Public Health, University of California Los Angeles (UCLA).

PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES

California Governor Gavin Newsom was one of the first in the country to enact relatively strict confinement, allowing only “essential” activities such as going to the grocery store and pharmacy, and exercising respect for safety distances between people.

In contrast, eight states – Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, South Carolina, Utah, and Wyoming – have not mandated their residents to stay home.

“The governor issued ‘home security’ and ‘shelter’ orders relatively quickly. Universities like UCLA and other large employers closed even earlier and sent people to work, teach and study from home,” said Michels, who has extensive experience in disease prevention, public health and statistical methods.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, California schools may continue to be closed until the end of August.

Newsom also took the initiative to decree the closure of schools, which will remain closed until next year, as a preventive measure; in asking President Donald Trump to send a hospital ship to Los Angeles to support local hospitals before it reached a hypothetical peak in the number of cases, which has not yet occurred; and in closing the state’s beaches and parks.

Another point that seems to have helped so far in the exceptional case of California against COVID-19, according to experts, is the low population density of the state, which reduces the possibility of contagion and allows better compliance with the rules of social distancing.

“TO
 Despite having a large population, Californians do not live in
as dense as New Yorkers. Cities spread with
Few skyscrapers: Relative to other states, many more people in
 California lives in houses, not in apartment buildings or buildings
high, “summarizes Michels, who is based on data from a study of his
college.

YOUNG PEOPLE, LESS DEATHS PER CAPITA

California has had a much lower per capita death rate than most of the nation’s largest states, with the exception of Texas.

“The state has a low average age and a high
density of healthcare facilities, which may have contributed to
 the low mortality rate, “explained Michels.

According to a recent study published in The Lancet, the mortality rate among those infected with 20 years of age is 0.03%, while for those 70 years of age it is 8.6%.

Cautious tone

The
 Californian authorities have projected alarming numbers in the
recent weeks, although so far those estimates have not been
compliment.

Newsom himself foresaw two weeks ago that more than half the state’s population, or about 25 million people, would become infected, so he begged its residents to follow the guidelines to the letter.

For his part, the mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, did not hesitate to forecast that the city “would follow in the footsteps of New York” in number of cases, a catastrophic scenario that is still far away.

COVID-19 affects children differently than adults. This is what the doctors say in the following video.

The United States on Monday exceeded 10,000 deaths from coronavirus, with 10,335 and almost 350,000 infected, making it the third country with the most deaths after Italy and Spain, according to the count of the Center for Systems, Science and Engineering (CSSE) from Johns Hopkins University (Maryland).

The new data is known after this Sunday
President Donald Trump, during his usual daily press conference,
make sure “this will probably be the hardest week, between this
week and next, and there will be a lot of death. ”

The state of New York, the great epicenter of the pandemic in the United States, accumulates with these latest figures a total of 4,758 deaths and 130,689 confirmed cases of COVID-19, compared to just over 122,000 that it had a day earlier.
