Hospital de Maipú abriría a comienzos de 2014

99% de avance:

Un 99% y 98% de avance tienen las obras gruesas de los nuevos hospitales de Maipú y La Florida, respectivamente, según el MOP. En el primer caso, el 65% fue recepcionado y está siendo equipado. Eso implica que, tras la recepción final, podría iniciar la marcha blanca en octubre y abrir totalmente el primer trimestre de 2014.

Ambos recintos fueron pensados para funcionar bajo un nuevo modelo de gestión, como hospitales clínicos. Pero como la ley que los crea está entrampada en el Congreso, Salud no descarta que Maipú funcione como hospital autogestionado hasta que se apruebe la ley o un veto presidencial.

  • Brazil published the draft rules earlier this month of its first public tender to build and operate a natural gas pipeline. The call for bids from petroleum, natural gas and biofuels agency ANP is open until April 10, with a public hearing in Rio de Janeiro scheduled for February 24. The Itaboraí-Guapimirim 11km pipeline will connect the Rio de Janeiro petrochemical complex in Itaboraí with the Cabiúnas-Reduc-Gasduc III pipeline in Duque de Caxias city, and will generate a maximum annual income of 20.5bn reais (US$7.9bn). The bidding results will be published on August 19, when the winner is expected to sign the concession contract. "This will be the first auction since the gas law was approved back in 2009. This particular pipeline is relatively small, but it will be interesting as a pilot for the new rules that were so painfully discussed years ago," said J. Robert Martins, a partner at local law firm Trench, Rossi e Watanabe. "The market will expect the government to announce additional auctions, hopefully for larger pipelines. The future of the gas market depends on a reliable, diversified, and efficient pipeline network that can transport natural gas at reasonable prices," he said.

  • Brazil's Petrobras reported its fourth domestic hydrocarbons find of the month. Information from hydrocarbons regulator ANP reveals the discovery was made at onshore well 3BRSA1277CE, designated by Petrobras as 3FZB880CE. The well was spud in October and is in the Fazenda Belém field in the Potiguar basin, Ceará state. In 2014, Petrobras reported 62 hydrocarbon finds out of a total 83. This month's other discovery to date was made by Parnaíba Gás Natural. Companies are obligated to report any hydrocarbons discovery within 72 hours. The find does not necessarily constitute a commercial accumulation. Petrobras lifted its proven oil and gas reserves by 47Mb in 2014.

  • A range of global insurance players have joined forces to establish a microinsurance corsortium and microinsurance venture incubator. The initiative was announced during the World Economic Forum (WEF) taking place in Davos, Switzerland. The consortium consists of AIG, Aspen, Catlin, Guy Carpenter, Marsh, Hamilton, Transatlantic Reinsurance, XL Group and Zurich. The consortium has committed to launching 10 ventures over the next 10 years to deliver solutions to address the risk management needs of the underserved, the companies said in a joint release. The group is currently evaluating opportunities in Latin America, Africa and Asia, with the initial venture due to be launched this year. The growth of the insurance industry is increasingly tied to innovation and the positive impact that insurance makes on society, said Daniel Glaser, president and CEO of Marsh. Meanwhile, the gap between economic and insured losses continues to be an impediment to the emergence of societies, said the president and CEO of Guy Carpenter, Alexander Moczarski. LOWER GROWTH Latin America's microinsurance industry has entered a phase of lower growth following the boom of 2005-11, with compound annual growth of 14% coming to an end, according to a note from the Munich Re Foundation. Microinsurance growth was only 2% in 2013, according to the reinsurance company. However, the trend towards mass market insurance in the region is obscuring the difference between middle and low income clients, and several insurers are shifting their focus to mass market from microinsurance. Despite this, several regulatory actions were taken in Brazil and Mexico during 2014 which are likely to have a positive effect on microinsurance growth in those countries. Meanwhile, multilateral institutions such as the IFC also made investments in microinsurance last year, providing US$18mn for Peruvian insurer and reinsurer La Positiva, which is a leading microinsurance provider in the Andean nation. LATIN AMERICA AMONG LEAST PENETRATED Despite being the fastest growing insurance market for much of the past decade, Latin America remains one of the least penetrated. Total insurance penetration in Latin America and the Caribbean was just 3.2% in 2013, compared to 3.0% in emerging Asia and 3.5% in Africa. Life insurance penetration was 1.4% in Latin America as of 2013, while P&C penetration was 1.8% at that time, according to Swiss Re statistics. There is a significant variation in insurance penetration among countries in the region, with more developed markets such as Chile and Brazil having rates of above 4%, while the figure falls to under 3% in countries including Colombia, Mexico and Uruguay.
