Fertilizer Markets and Finance

On this blog I publish posts & news about what's new in the fertilizer industry and how it's markets are affected by geopolitical developments, environmental changes and monetary policies. I also focus on how farmers are affected by government decisions, and economic fundamentals of the market place. I am passionate about agriculture in Trinidad and write about problems farmers face in the agriculture industry especially in rural areas. Thanks for viewing.

President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko was interviewed by local media on the eve of his visit to Venezuela. In particular, the Belarusian leader said he was willing to create the center of mixing Belarusian potash and local nitrogen fertilizers in Venezuela so that to sell them in Latin America, which, as he says, feels lack of it.

In addition, the Belarusian Head of State says that Belarus intends to continue developing the construction of enterprises for chemicals, petrochemicals, household appliances, television factories, as well as to build a thermal power plant, gas pipelines and a large amount of housing in Venezuela, BelTA informs.

According to Alexander Lukashenko, he has long been negotiated with his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez. He says that Belarus would help protect the country from dependence on raw materials and create a strong industrial and agro-industrial complex.

"If talking about our interest, then I see Venezuela as a great base from which we can work for the whole Latin America. So, I offered to my friend Chavez to regard Belarus as a foothold of economic expansion in Europe, in a good sense of the word," said President of Belarus.

The Belarusian leader stresses that Belarus and Venezuela cooperate not to the detriment of other countries.

"We’re not friends against someone. We are not going to interfere with any other state or wage a war. We want to ensure the independence and prosperity of their nations and peoples," said Alexander Lukashenko.

As Telegraf previously reported, first vice-premier Vladimir Semashko reported to the president a week ago that Belarus and Venezuela were implementing joint projects for $2.9 billion.

A blog entry on Alberta Oil Magazine’s website this week asks whether Alberta and Canada should not be paying more attention to political events in Venezuela.

Hugo Chavez, famous among other things for nationalizing the country’s gold industry, is facing stiff opposition from newcomer Henrique Capriles in upcoming presidential elections.

After 13 years in charge, Chavez’s health may also be failing.

Venezuela has the world’s largest oil reserves at just under 296 billion barrels, but under Chavez, the country’s output has actually decreased to 3 million barrels per day.
