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.

  • The Mexican government could shrink next year's national budget by up to 250bn pesos (US$16.6bn). That's according to Ernesto O'Farrill of the Mexican institute of public accountants (IMPC). "It's probable there'll be a bigger cut in public spending in 2016 compared with what we saw in 2015," news website El Universal quoted O'Farrill as saying. "We estimate it could range between 200bn and 250bn pesos, that is to say, between 1% and 1.4% of GDP," added O'Farrill, chairman of IMPC's economic analysis committee. He said this was based on a scenario in which the Fed and Mexico's central bank raise interest rates gradually. Another expert, Aníbal Gutiérrez from the economics faculty of Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, was reported as saying that in a best case scenario the budget would be reduced by around 70bn pesos. In January, the government said it would reduce the 2015 budget by 124bn pesos in response to the drop in global crude prices, which is hitting state revenues. Last week, President Enrique Peña Nieto confirmed that the government was redesigning next year's budget. The move could lead to some infrastructure projects being canceled, an official at local financial group Grupo Financiero Banorte told BNamericas previously. "This announcement is negative for the infrastructure sector," the source said. Mexico's government will also review the country's 2014-18 infrastructure plan in conjunction with national construction chamber CMIC as part of a bid to increase the involvement of the private sector in infrastructure projects. The government is looking to "cancel budgets, programs or reduce the scope of those programs that do not fulfill their purpose, namely, programs that do not redistribute income or are not properly evaluated," finance minister Luis Videgaray Caso said previously.

  • US-based global asset manager BlackRock and private equity firm First Reserve have bought a US$900mn, 45% stake in Mexico's Los Ramones II natural gas pipeline (pictured) from a unit of state oil company Pemex. The interest covers the north and south sections of Los Ramones II. The agreement was signed by the two firms and Pemex's international trade subsidiary PMI. The acquisition of the stake is the first public-private partnership in Mexican midstream assets, BlackRock said in a press release. The investment includes a 25-year transportation services agreement for the 744km stretch of the pipeline with Pemex Gas and Petrochemicals (PGPB). Los Ramones I, from Agua Dulce in Texas to Los Ramones in Nuevo León state, began operations in December. Los Ramones II, which will comprise two sections, will run 669km from Los Ramones to Apaseo el Alto, in Guanajuato state. The pipeline's minimum capacity will be 40.5Mm3/d. Work on the US$2.5bn Los Ramones II began last September and it is due to start commercial operations mid-2016. The Nuevo León-San Luis Potosí stretch will be built by Pemex affiliates TAG Pipelines, Gasoductos de Chihuahua and PMI, while the southern stretch, from San Luis Potosí to Guanajuato, will be built by TAG, PMI Holdings and GDF Suez. The pipeline is key to boosting Mexico's natural gas supply for industry and power generation. The equity injection is BlackRock's first infrastructure investment in Mexico, where it plans to establish a local investment platform, leveraging its global investing capabilities and existing Latin American business, the firm said. First Reserve is the largest global private equity and infrastructure investment firm exclusively focused on energy, with more than US$4bn invested in energy infrastructure worldwide. Pemex CEO Emilio Lozoya said the deal demonstrates international investors' confidence in Mexico. BNamericas will host its 3rd Mexico Oil & Gas Summit on April 15-16, and its 3rd Mexico Electric Power Summit on May 13-14, both in Mexico City.

  • Thursday saw yet another development in the ongoing New York courtroom drama centered on the Argentine government and US judge Thomas Griesa. Argentine finance minister Axel Kicillof, referring to a ruling made by Griesa on Monday, alleged bondholders had been put at risk. Griesa had ruled Citibank could process two Argentine bond payments, one of which is due on March 30 and the other June 30. "Reading the fine print of the deal, what we find is a trap possibly aimed at scamming the bondholders," Kicillof told a news conference, Reuters reported. What Argentine authorities fear is that Monday's ruling will help smooth the bank's exit from the custody business in the Latin American country, Reuters added. Argentina pointed out that on Wednesday Griesa ruled that the Belgium-based clearing house Euroclear could not proceed with making interest payments on the same Argentine bonds, adding the move confirms that Monday's ruling facilitates Citibank's exit. Kicillof has said that if Citibank does not process bond payments it would be in breach of Argentine law and its license to operate in the country would be at risk. In related news, the Argentine economy is showing signs of stabilization, with devaluation of the peso losing steam as accumulated devaluation totaled 2.34% in the first two months of the year compared with the 38.6% accumulated in the 12 months to September 2014. Inflation, according to national statistics institute Indec, slowed in February to 0.9% compared with 1.1% in January. But potential problems loom in the medium to long term, as the central bank might be forced to resume a devaluation of the peso in light of possible valuations of competing currencies – most importantly the Brazilian real – a move that would also spark inflation.
