GSW IN THE NEWS:
Gunster Strategies Managing Director Jim Hoffmann quoted for participation in U.S. Latin America Legal Summit panel.
Chinese money is expected to flow into Chile and Mexico as the country looks to invest in manufacturing and agricultural development abroad to secure its food supply, according to experts at a Latin America legal conference in Miami on Friday.
At the Akerman LLP-sponsored U.S. Latin America Legal Summit, James Hoffmann, managing director of Gunster Strategies Worldwide, said China is looking to facilitate large-scale agriculture in Latin America, particularly Chile, to create resiliency in its supply chain of food thanks in part to U.S. tariffs threatening its access to soybeans and other food products.
Chile, because it is in the Southern Hemisphere with the opposite growing season as China, is especially attractive.
“China is making investments in that,” Hoffmann said. “[Latin Americans] understand the American jurisdiction and American requirements, and the Chinese have mapped a lot of their requirements on what Americans did.”
