Brazil’s President Temer Recently Signed A New Trade Agreement With The Chinese

Trade Agreements

 

Many economists say that the Chinese economy is on the verge of imploding. The Chinese say their economy is still growing by more than 6 percent a year, and that growth is better than any other country except India. China does have bank, real estate, and manufacturing issues, but the country is still the second largest economy in the world, and China is still a good trading partner. Brazil was hurt by China two years ago when the Chinese decided to scale back their imports from Brazil. But the new agreement that President Temer signed with the Chinese government will help Brazil’s export business in 2017. One of Brazil’s leading building material exporters is Eucatex. Eucatex has offices in China and in other Asian, European and North and South American countries. Eucatex export business with China has been soft over the last two years, but CEO Flavio Maluf is optimistic about the company’s future in the Chinese market.

 

 

Flavio Maluf is a seasoned exporter, environmentalist, philanthropist and business executive. Maluf is credited with turning Eucatex into a multi-million-dollar exporter that has a presence in home improvement stores in North America and Europe. Eucatex paint, floorboards, ceiling tile and varnish brands compete with name brand domestic products in those markets. Eucatex brands are price competitively, and they are known for their quality and effectiveness.

 

 

The history of Eucatex is a fascinating story, and all is told on their website. The company is the stepchild of a sawmill owned by the Maluf family. In 1954, the Americana Sawmill Americana, in the state of Sao Paulo, was a thriving business. The sawmill cut a large number of eucalyptus trees for customers, and the excess wood was taking up too much room in the factory. Flavio’s grandfather decided to use the excess wood to make a ceiling tile. The wood ceiling tile was inexpensive and durable, so Maluf offered it to his customers.

 

 

Today, Eucatex is one of the leading exporters of building materials, and Flavio Maluf is one of the most well-known environmentalists and executives in the country.  Learn more on LinkedIn.

The firm was founded in 2001 and over the years, it has over the years served over 300,000 customers. It has unique customer services, and the professionals involved establish long-term relationships with clients. The team behind the success of USMR is made up of professionals with expert knowledge and experience in the precious metal industry. The president of the firm Phillip N. Diehl is a former US Mint Director and the CEO Angie Koch has vast experience. The coin research and numismatic experts advise clients on products that have a high-profit potential.

With its headquarters in Austin, Texas, the firm endeavors to give customers peace of mind while making financial decisions. The staff offers clear and honest details when they want to purchase gold, silver and platinum products. What are the products offered by US Money Reserve? Bullion and certified gold coins are some of the products on offer. Gold bullion coins are a short-term hold, a precious metal in bulk and have a value tied to current market price. The most common bullion gold coins are the 22 and 24-karat gold with the famous coins being Gold American Eagles and Canadian Maple Leaf. Certified coins, on the other hand, are graded rare coins that offer long-term finance protection and are in high demand in the marketplace. The most popular certified gold coins are Ultra High Relief Gold Eagle and Burnished Gold American Eagles. Gold bars are products that are easier and cost effective forms of gold ownership.

Why should one own physical precious metals as a means to diversify assets? One of the reasons is because the highest graded coins have a great opportunity for growth. Gold is a recession-proof asset and is not affected by the global unrest, political instability or economic downturn. Precious metal legal tender products maintain value unlike the high risk of volatility for stocks, mutual funds and bonds. Gold is not at the mercy of government, and the same cannot be said of paper currencies which may face inflation thus, its worth diminishes. The value of gold continues to increase following its scarcity and increased demand around the world.

Thinking of protecting your retirement and savings, having IRA with physical precious metal is essential as one is protected from financial shocks. One can transfer an existing traditional IRA account into a gold and silver retirement account.

Michael Zomber, A True Renaissance Man

Knowledge

Michael Zomber has achieved success in many fields. Whether it’s filmmaking, writing, or film-making, Zomber has a knack for getting things done. One thing that unifies all of these fields is his interest in the samurai.

Zomber’s focus on Japanese history has informed many of his pursuits. The Bushido, or warrior code, of the samurai has informed several of his novels. Michael Zomber also has an extensive collection of antique samurai armor. He has a long-running relationship with the History Channel, working on shows including “Tales of the Gun.”

Although this fascination with warriors can sound like an affinity for violence, nothing could be further from the truth. Zomber respects the restraint and structure that are inherent in the Bushido. That is where the attraction lies. While the stories of warriors and their exploits are interesting to him, Zomber actually works for peace.

Along with his wife, Andrea, Michael Zomber is involved in several organizations that work to end war and de-escalate conflicts. Amnesty International, UNICEF, and Doctors Without Borders are among the organizations close to their hearts.

The Zombers formed a production company, Renascent Films, in 1998. The films they have produced include La Cucaracha, Literary Riot, and Soul of the Samurai. La Cucaracha achieved critical acclaim, and was named Best Picture at the Austin Film Festival.

Whether it is his novels, fiction-based films, or documentaries, Zomber is always successful at that. Educated at UCLA, he holds graduate and undergraduate degrees in History.
