Sural - News: A Persuasive Illustration Of The Benefits Of Free Trade: The Sural Group, 18 April 2001 [cached]
In an address to one of the Montreal Conference's International Forums, Dr. Alfredo Riviere, President of Venezuelan company The Sural Group, illustrated how beneficial free trade has been to his company. In the same vein, he insisted on Quebec's openness to free trade, saying that this was one of the key factors that brought Sural to establish a subsidiary in the province.
According to Dr. Riviere, "Integration does not mean creating economic blocs to confront other blocs, but rather to improve the trade opportunities within those trade zones and to negotiate with other continents or regions that have common markets". He went on to point out that integration must take place without discriminatory treatment with respect to both investment and trade.
Thinking back on how they positioned the company internationally, Dr. Riviere said that Sural Group underwent a series of administrative changes while closely monitoring the international environment and market trends in order to determine towards which countries or economic blocs its strategies should be oriented and its efforts be directed.
According to Dr. Riviere, Sural is very optimistic about the future for the demand for aluminum products, which will continue to grow at a steady pace, especially in the automobile industry.
In this context, Dr. Riviere expressed his pleasure at Quebec's interest in processing aluminum. Given Quebec's openness towards liberalizing trade, it made sense for Sural to consider Quebec as a natural partner for its international expansion strategy.
"During our expansion process, SURAL found that Quebec had energy and natural resources that were very similar to those in Venezuela. We were therefore able to apply ideas and strategies that had already been successfully tested, which among other things enabled us to access the NAFTA market", said Dr. Riviere.
In negotiating with the Quebec Government, Sural found what can be labelled as "a visionary climate that was fully receptive to new technological ideas", as well as the availability of resources for applied research projects, tax and financial incentives for new investments and highly skilled human resources with professional ethics. "This was the beginning of our first company in Quebec", concluded Dr. Riviere.
