Panama Canal May Face Competition From Nicaragua

The Nicaraguan government proposed legislation that will give a 50-year concession for the construction and operation of a new canal connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to a Chinese operator.
By Patrick Burnson, Executive Editor
June 18, 2013

A long talked about alternative to the Panama Canal moved one step closer this week, reports analysts for IHS Global Insights.

The Nicaraguan government proposed legislation that will give a 50-year concession for the construction and operation of a new canal connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to a Chinese operator.

Should the Chinese operator succeed in raising sufficient finance to develop the project, it will profoundly alter operational conditions in Nicaragua, shape global trade pattern, and shift regional relations.

Of several proposed alternatives to the Panama Canal, this proposal seems the most likely yet to get off the ground, partly because of the Nicaraguan government’s dominance of the domestic scenario, partly because of the clear long-term commercial benefits for a plethora of different actors.

The PMI, the ISM’s index to measure growth fell 0.8 percent to 52.7 (a PMI of 50 or greater represents growth). PMI growth has been at 50 or higher for 31 straight months (with the overall economy growing for 74 months), and the current PMI is 1.7 percent below the 12-month average of 54.4.

The supply chain industry is undoubtedly growing. But Baby-Boomer retirement, higher supply chain volumes and greater operational complexities create the greatest talent gap at the mid- and upper-management levels. If you're trying to fill the talent gap through entry-level recruitment alone, you aren't leveraging the full competitive advantage of your supply chain. Read this white paper to uncover 10 talent myths that are impeding growth, and eight best practices from benchmark companies to not only find and recruit but also develop and retain talent that can meet a company's long-term supply chain needs.

The politics, economics and the regulations of dumping and countervailing duties are difficult legal processes to understand. Investigations and legal proceedings in front of the International Trade Commission require teams of accountants and lawyers and very often cost millions of dollars in litigation fees. So who has the time and money to pursue unfair import cases?

While many industry analysts contend that distribution centers near U.S. East Coast ports will see a surge of new business after the Panama Canal expansion, real estate experts say this phenomena is already underway.
