The president of ACIML has said that Portugal could take advantage of the political and diplomatic tension between Beijing and Canberra to export more wine to China.

The president of the International Commercial Association for Lusophone Markets (ACIML) has said that Portugal could take advantage of the political and diplomatic tension between Beijing and Canberra to export more wine to China. Tensions arose after Australia excluded the Chinese telecommunications group Huawei from the development of its fifth generation (5G) network, for national security reasons and called for an international investigation into the origins of the covid-19 pandemic. Portugal's exports to China decreased by more than a third in the last year, compared to 2019.

Who will buy Aussie Iron Ore ?

Who will buy Aussie Coal ?

Who will buy Aussie Agro and wine ? Here there is some hope,as the growth of affluence in the world,will open new markets and the incremental freight and marketing costs,which will have to be incurred by Aussie,will slowly yield higher NSR,in the target markets.But it will take time

COVID has RUINED that strategy,also.

Who can use Aussie Coal ? EU is exiting Coal.LATAM.South Am have enough Coal.North America has enough Coal,and US is exiting coal.So we are left with the Indians.The way to sell their spiel to the Indians,is that,the Indians,should keep their black gold in the ground (for some future disaster),and start using Aussie coal via imports (with some discounts in the pricing).dindooohindoo

In the alt,Aussie will need to go up the value chain,and partner with power exporters in India (metals and ferro alloy units),to sell them coal,be JV partners in the Ferro Alloy units and then export the ferro alloys.Aussie banks and Aussie PE,can fund the power plants of the ferro alloy units,as an IPP feeding power through the grid.The Ferro Alloys can be funded,by an Indian Bank.

The sane model can be applied with LDCs,who have the ore (say manganese),lack power,have medium draft ports and will qualify for Nil Duty access,into regulated markets.
