Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
Renato Ferreira, CEO and Founder of LOBRAUS, offered an exclusive dinner in honor of Uruguayan President Mujica and all of the Uruguayan Official Delegation – Minister of Foreign Affairs Luis Almagro, Minister of Economics and Finances Mario Bergara, Minister of Interior Eduardo Bonomi, Minister of Industry, Mining and Energy Roberto Kreimerman, Minister of Education and Culture Ricardo Ehrlich, U.S. and Uruguayan
Ambassadors Carlos Pita and Julissa Reynoso — and reputable entrepreneurial personalities, both from Uruguay and the U.S.
Dinner was held at the highly acclaimed Fogo de Chão Restaurant in Washington D.C. in a private room reserved exclusively for the occasion. Renato Ferreira addressed the audience and presented their upcoming project for the Port of Montevideo; the LOBRAUS Tower, to be built in the second semester of 2014.
Said project consists of a 21-floor state of the art tower building for working offices, jointly with the construction of a 30.000 square meter warehouse; all within the Port of Montevideo. The project will be developed under a unique law regime known in Uruguay as Free Port, which facilitates international foreign trade and logistics solutions for MERCOSUR; a South American based organization for economic and political agreements between Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
Before dinner began, Renato Ferreira gave a 10-minute speech, where he mentioned not only the project but also encouraged America's businessmen to invest in Uruguay.
Ferreira insisted that although Uruguay is a small country in South America with a population of only 3.4 million people, it has a strong, solid and credible economy. Uruguay is also ranked first based on its democracy in comparison with other South American countries. It is the country with the lowest corruption rate within South America, with a positive investment rate valuation and high living standards compared to others. It is truly South America’s best kept secret yet to be discovered by the U.S. entrepreneurial sector.
LOBRAUS CEO Renato Ferreira captivated the attention of his guests by recounting his personal experiences in Uruguay; sharing with them his dreams of Uruguay’s future and what he expected from the U.S. in order to build tighter bonds between both nations. Among other points, he mentioned that by combining Uruguay’s vigorous democracy and credible economy with U.S. technology, research, and available funds, Uruguay can be regarded as a strategic ally in the region as well as a strong and leading country in South America.
Concluding his idea, President Mujica and guests were offered a special gift, which consisted of a light bulb with the word Uruguay written on it. Quoting Thomas A. Edison, Ferreira emphatically mentioned that, like Edison, he had an idea. If everyone were to closely observe the inside of the light bulb, they would find a key inside; a key for a unique opportunity called: Uruguay! Come invest in Uruguay.
