Abstract:

BMI View: Our outlook for the Argentinian port sector is continuing to look better than it has been for some time. In ----, we forecast growth, albeit modestly, both in tonnage and throughput volumes at several of the country s maritime facilities. Weaker private consumption will continue to reduce imports in the next year, while a weaker exchange rate will slightly improve the competitiveness of exports, which will have a positive outcome for port volumes. Government intervention, industrial unrest and bureaucratic requirements will continue to disrupt the industry, while easing inflationary pressure supporting growth in household incomes, declining real imports and a boost in soy export volumes will strengthen net export numbers. However, we sill forecast a moderate expansion due to structural issues still affecting the country. ...A more moderate inflation will continue to drive positive GDP growth in Argentina over the medium term, and we forecast GDP growth to increase from -.- in ---- to -.- by the end of our forecast period (average growth rate of -.- y-o-y). The accelerated growth will be due to fixed capital formation returning to growth on the back of investor optimism toward a new government.

...A lack of investment in port infrastructure has resulted in frequent bottlenecks and delays at ports. Argentina has a weak financial system and relatively weak legal and regulatory frameworks. ...We caution that strikes could impact on future growth at the country s ports should shipping companies become wary with regard to the market. We maintain our long-held view for a settlement between the Argentine government and holdout debt investors before the October election, after which point investor sentiment and business confidence will begin to improve somewhat as the country exits technical default. As a result, even though we have modestly tempered our ---- gross fixed capital formation forecast, it remains in positive territory. ...We maintain our long-held view for a settlement between the Argentine government and holdout debt investors before the October election, after which point investor sentiment and business confidence will begin to improve somewhat as the country exits technical default.
