Flavio Maluf Sets Export Concerns To Rest  0

As the son of a well known politician in Brazil and the head of a family-owned global conglomerate, Flavio Maluf is well qualified to comment on the recent report released by the Secretariat of International Relations of the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply. The report contains export results for the month of June for Brazilian agribusiness. While the figures showed a decrease of 0.7% in comparison to that same period the previous year, Maluf pointed out that the downward movement was simply a balance of trade of agribusiness, which totaled US $ 8.17 billion (+ 0.7%).

In truth, agricultural sector exports, which represent nearly half of all total foreign sales (45.6%) reached $1.04 billion in June, which is up 10.1% over the same period the previous year. Of the agriculture sector exports, soy makes up more than half of them (53.3%). Based on the most recent survey data of the 2017/2018 harvest, the Brazilian Supply Company (Conab) estimates that Brazil’s total export of soybeans for this year will reach 72 million tons. That would exceed the previous period’s volume by 5.6%. In addition, the total crop of soybeans is expected to reach or exceed 119 million tons, which is also up 4.2% on the previous crop.

The two main markets for Brazilian agribusiness exports are China and the European Union.

The EU in particular, which is currently comprised of 28 countries, showed a marked increase in sales of soybean meal, up US $94.70 million. Other increases include pulp (+ US $ 60.36 million), orange juice (+ US $ 35.40 million ) and green coffee (+ US $ 17.64 million). Maluf went on to further stress that in the initial months of 2018, from January to June, Brazil had already shipped a total of 46.27 million tons of grain which resulted in the generation of US $18.43 billion in revenues. Compared to that same time frame in 2017, that represented an increase of 5.2% in quantity and with an increase in the average price of 5.1%, that result in a total of 10.6% increase in the total exported value over this same time last year.

Dick Devos Looks to Improve His Hometown  0

In 1991 Dick Devos helped shoot down a plan for a multi-purpose sports arena outside of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. He had learned the lessons from Detroit’s downfall after the Pistons and Lions built arenas. This lead to his creation of Grand Action, a group of business leaders who came together to better the community and build hospitals, parks, and schools.

 

Since then, Dick and Betsy Devos have not given up on creating better opportunities for people in their community. It has largely taken the shape of charter schools, which are aimed at providing parents with local decision making and choice regarding their childrens’ education without paying tuition, just like public schools.

 

In fact, the couple have given over $1 billion to various causes in their lifetime. In 2013, Dick and Betsy gave over $90 million to education causes, as well as health services, community services, faith based groups, and arts causes. More recently the couple have started an aviation academy in west Michigan to allow kids to train to be pilots without paying costly tuition.

 

The Devos family seek to better their family and their community with their giving. For instance, they have helped develop training in teaching, which cut down on the amount of absentee students in those schools who are often minorities in low income areas by 30%. Dick believes that schools are the first places that communities need to change from the inside out.

 

Other ways they have helped to improve their small town is by getting people basic needs like drivers licenses if they needed to drive to get to work, have access to social programs, and even sometimes just meals and showers. One recipient of their kindness, Mel Trotter, was able to get a job in just over a month and cease being homeless.

 

The Devos haven’t always been successful in pushing their educational agenda. Their “Kids First!” campaign sought to give more tax credits to parents so they could choose where their children went to school. Ultimately, voters shot down the initiative. But that hasn’t stopped Dick and Betsy Devos from making education a priority.

 

They continue to use Grand Action as a way to get education to young people and entrepreneurs so that Michigan can continue to transform. The group provides scholarships and other opportunities such as internships to underprivileged kis who get certain grades. Among chairing the FAA and his own company Windquest, Dick Devos stays busy finding ways to better the world around him now and into the future.
