El Foro Paraguayo tomará lugar el próximo 11 de Septiembre de 7:30 a 9:30 am en la Universidad de Wisconsin en la ciudad de Milwaukee-EEUU.

Los temas principales a desarrollar durante el evento serán relacionados con la agricultura y exportaciones de Paraguay al resto del mundo, además de la posibilidad de recibir inversiones directas extranjeras e inversiones conjuntas.
Según el organizador Peter Tase (quien fue el iniciador del evento), este Foro tiene un importante rol político y económico para el Paraguay de hoy, al que describió como haber sido marginado por sus países vecinos.
“Esta fue la región más importante para mí, por lo que he decidido trabajar en conjunto con otros instructores del Departamento de Negocios de la Universidad para conformar un foro estratégico acerca del Paraguay”, manifestó Tase.
Los principales expositores en el Forum serán representantes nacionales del Congreso paraguayo, como el diputado nacional Blas Lanzoni Achinelli, quien además es presidente de la comisión de comercio, industria y turismo de la Cámara de Diputados. También confirmó su presencia Vicente Aquino, director de la fundacion paraguaya Ñepytyvo, (establecida en Washington DC).
Tase mencionó que el Foro Paraguayo será en el club de la Universidad de Milwaukee, que es un club de membresía privada y todos los líderes serán recibidos en esta locación.
La semana pasada fueron enviadas aproximadamente 70 invitaciones y por el momento siguen esperando las confirmaciones respectivas provenientes de los representantes de la República del Paraguay en Washington DC, para así poder enviar otras 30 invitaciones a otros líderes de negocios de los Estados Unidos. “Desafortunadamente el embajador de la República del Paraguay ha expresado su imposibilidad de participar del evento”, dijo el organizador.
Esta es la primera vez que la Universidad de Wisconsin organiza un Foro sobre Paraguay y es también la primera vez que el mismo ha sido organizado en los Estados Unidos, fuera del área de Washington DC.
Algunas de las empresas Norteamericanas que formarán parte del Foro Paraguayo serán: Bucyrus International, Briggs and Stratton Corporation, John Deere Worldwide, Manpower Co., Oshkosh Truck, Sensient Corp., Miller Light, Harley Davidson, entre otras.
Además contarán con la presencia de representantes de la Universidad de Wisconsin en Milwaukee, el decano de la Facultad del Comercio Timothy L. Smunt, el profesor Kanti V. Prasad (Ex miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Ciudad de Milwaukee), Charles Mulcahy, J.D., y Vicente Aquino, director y fundador de la Fundación Ñepytyvo Inc.
Según Peter Tase, uno de los objetivos del foro sería mostrar apoyo político al actual presidente del Paraguay, Federico Franco, además de que el evento fomente aun más el comercio bilateral entre los países de Paraguay y EEUU.
“Esta es la razón por la que hemos decidido organizar este Foro, para poder beneficiar a la nación Paraguaya y a su comunidad comercial, para que mutuamente puedan cooperar el uno con el otro”, dijo.
En el Foro habrá un cierto número de estudiantes de la Universidad de Wisconsin que estarán presentes en el evento pero la gran mayoría de los participantes serán presidentes, vicepresidentes y directores de compañías interesadas en invertir en el país.
Estas empresas están dedicadas e involucradas principalmente en maquinarias de información tecnológica, equipamientos y maquinarias para la agricultura, administración de recursos humanos, industrias alimenticias y productos lácteos.
Peter Tase ha formado parte del Cuerpo de Paz, que fue lo que lo trajo al Paraguay por primera vez en los años 2007 al 2009 y después de ese periodo ha visitado el país un par de veces, la ultima fue durante este año con una estadía de 3 meses. Actualmente se encuentra en el proceso de preparación y edición de un libro sobre el Paraguay.
El organizador finalizó expresando la importancia política y económica de este Foro porque demuestra el apoyo de empresas norteamericanas a la idea de trabajar conjuntamente con empresas paraguayas que a su vez han demostrado interés en trabajar con sus pares de dicho país.
La Universidad de Wisconsin es una entidad educativa pública urbana de investigación, la más grande del área metropolitana de Milwaukee. Poseen un total de 30.502 estudiantes inscriptos y 1.623 instructores. Además cuentan con el más amplio Departamento de Arquitectura, Enfermería y Ciencias de la Salud del Estado de Milwaukee.

Paraguay Inks Oil Deal to Advance on Energy Independence

  Peter M. Tase            December 11th     2012

On December 5th, President Federico Franco of Paraguay began a two-day official visit to Miami, invited by local petrochemical companies that are planning to explore oil in the the Chaco region of the South American country.

In one of his interviews, Franco stated that Paraguay has the largest oil reserves in Latin America and is looking forward to receiving US investors to conduct further studies in the Chaco. One day before his departure, the president visited the city of Neuland (about 350 miles from capital city Asuncion) and with representatives of President Energy Company led the symbolic act of officially beginning the oil exploration in Chaco, in which President Energy is expected to invest $92 Million. Seismic exploration trucks have already undertaken tests and exploratory drilling is set to begin.

In Miami, Franco met with representatives of President Energy in Miami and noted that the exploration of oil in Paraguay “means a tremendous added  value for [Paraguay’s] economy.” Franco “highly values Paraguay’s potential for energy independence and the its significance to secure an added value from oil and its byproducts.”

He added that “[oil exploration] will open a new area of development for the country,  and further enhance what we already have in the agricultural sector and create value with our existing strategic resources.” Franco received details of the latest digital technology in studies of geo-seismology undertaken by President Energy Co. in the territory of Pirity and Boqueron in the Paraguayan Chaco region. It was in the Chaco region that Paraguay fought a brief war with neighboring Bolivia in the 1930s, ostensibly over possible petroleum reserves. It is in the same region that it currently faces a restless insurgency.

The senior leadership of President Energy, Peter Levine and Richard Gonzalez, presented the rese search and methodology that confirm prospects for oil in Paraguay. According to President Energy analysis, there have been identified more than 150 million barrels of high quality crude oil, which can be refined at the state-owned Petróleos Paraguayos (Petropar) refinery at Villa Elisa in central Paraguay.

Franco, accompanied by two members of his cabinet: Minister of Industry and Trade Francisco Rivas and Minister of Schedules Fernando Pfannl, was given briefings on the technology, industrial equipment and logistics that will be installed once the oil exploration has begun in Chaco. Also joining Franco were Senators Blas Llano and Robert Acevedo.

President Franco met also with the leadership of Brightstar, who confirmed their interest in establishing headquarters in Paraguay in order to assemble 30,000 computers per month.  Brightstar will fulfill the demand of supplying computers to Paraguayan children, while the surplus will be exported overseas. Brightstar is a global company, headquartered in Miami, and is dedicated to computer and cell phone production technology.

Also, in an exclusive interview with Speroforum in Paraguay, Franco confirmed his government’s desire for closer economic and political ties to the United States. This was confirmed last month when American Airlines began direct flights to the Paraguayan capital from the U.S. Franco’s government and Paraguayan exporters are still experiencing the fallout of Paraguay’s suspension from the MERCOSUR regional trade bloc. Paraguay’s absence from a crucial vote allowed Venezuela to become a member of MERCOSUR, despite Paraguay’s long-standing opposition. Paraguayan exporters complain of bureaucratic delays at the border with Argentina, while Paraguay struggles with diplomatic wrangling over its impeachment and removal of former President Fernando Lugo this year. The Organization of American States, however, has confirmed the constitutionality and legality of Lugo’s dismissal.

Peter M. Tase is a long-time observer of Paraguayan political affairs and trade matters. He writes forSperoforum, from where this article is adapted.

Stevia is acknowledged as Paraguay’s indigenous plant

20121203_22747_50bc834d58b6b_590Stevia is acknowledged as Paraguay’s indigenous plant

Peter Tase

International Programs Assistant to Secretary General International Federation of Engineering Education Societies.Stevia producers and farmers gathered in November 13-14, 2012 in Asuncion to discuss current challenges and accomplishments in their initiatives. Under the framework of the VI International Symposium of Stevia, president Federico Franco informed participants that Stevia or Ka’a He’ê is declared as a plant of Paraguayan Genetic Heritage.The Head of State announced substantial investments to encourage the cultivation of this natural non-caloric sweetener, discovered by Moise Giacomo Bertoni in 1887. The President of Paraguayan Chamber of Stevia Production (Capaste), Juan Barbosa, asked government representatives to enact legislation that encourages Stevia production as well as developing a certification stamp that would accompany Paraguay’s stevia products exported abroad.Franco’s government introduced in this symposium a number of initiatives in raising production, processing and marketing of Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni in the international markets. The president noted that: “the Ministry of Agriculture and Dairy (MAG) products, is planning to invest over USD 2 million towards the production of Ka’a He’ê for the last quarter of 2013 and following next year.”Production of stevia sprouts requires high technology; the Paraguayan ministry of Agriculture is working to develop techniques, tools and research labs to facilitate the cultivation of Stevia Rebaudiana in a larger scale. Enzo Cardozo, the minister of Agriculture, expressed his commitment that “the Ministry of Agriculture will create programs of training, research and expand Stevia plantations across the country, in order to transform Paraguay into a top producer of Stevia in t he world stage. Paraguayan farmers have cultivated more than 2,200 hectares of Stevia plants.Other countries in the region such as Argentina, Ecuador and Colombia are directing their energies towards a massive farming of Stevia Rabaudiana. While technological progress is at its height, Stevia is known to be a complex plant in both production and processing. Therefore it is clear that only developed countries have the potential to provide economic assistance to conduct further research in this area.

Therefore, country such as Japan, Brazil, Hong Kong and Taiwan, that are interested in Stevia production, have improved certain technologies related to the assembly sector as well as industrial processing; product refinement and Stevia’s applications in the industry. According to a report published by PriceWaterhousecoopers, Sustainable development has progressed steadily in the last decade that should be considered as a good sign for the growth of food industry.

There is a growing number of companies that are becoming aware of sustainable development and are focused towards implementing environmental friendly practices and product development. In developed economies fair trade practices and respect of labor law are principal components of assuring a successful presence in the market. Consumers are convinced that sustainable practice and reduction of employees’ exploitation are the core values which encourage them to purchase a particular product.

There are a number of factors that contribute to new market tendencies that are in accordance with new preferences encouraged and supported by customers;

1 – Global Market Forces; 2 – New vision for large corporations management, 3 – Large Scale globalization.

According to Sunny Misser, a U.S. marketing strategist: “Sustainable business balance their economic interests to suit the needs of socially and environmentally responsible customers, the companies that succeed in the long term are those that incorporate ethical considerations into their decision-making policy, and are administered on the basis of personal integrity and broad implementation of organizational values.”

Consumers are increasing their ethical awareness; according Pejling, a Swedish magazine of the Association of Dairy Producers: “70% of Swedish consumers have a ‘blacklist’ of products and companies that do not meet the ‘personal standards’” related to social and environmental responsibility.

Stevia or Ka’a He’ê, is one of the highly acclaimed products that brings the consumer closer to farmers, by paying a fair trade price and additionally, consumers support organic production of stevia which is healthier and safe to environment sustainability.

Foro de Milwaukee: Gobierno, ausente

Desde este espacio estamos sosteniendo que el Paraguay necesita tener presencia en todos los escenarios en los que sea posible exponer la actualidad económica, política, institucional y social del país. Argumentábamos que una construcción de ese tamaño implica una inversión proporcional en un campo que, como las relaciones públicas y la difusión, insumen muchos recursos.

En pocas palabras: es una materia cara. De ahí que cobren extraordinaria importancia y valor eventos que, organizados por terceros, ofrezcan al Paraguay estrados de gran importancia. Un ejemplo es el Foro Económico de Milwaukee, Estados Unidos, previsto para el 11 de setiembre próximo con una agenda compuesta por dos temas dominantes: la producción agropecuaria y la conexión del Paraguay con todos los mercados del mundo. Anfitriona, la Universidad de Wisconsin
