Spain: Spanish consortium “Ribert Investment & Business Trust/Indico PLC”

2015/11/22

Spanish consortium “Ribert Investment & Business Trust/Indico PLC” will soon start construction of 801 low-cost houses in a suburb of Bissau, the capital of Guinea-Bissau, announced Roberto Mondejar, head of the business group.

The construction of social housing is one of 20 projects that the consortium intends to run in Guinea-Bissau, under an agreement signed between the Government of Guinea-Bissau and Roberto Mondejar, who heads the group of Spanish businessmen who on Wednesday began a four-day visit to the country.

The Minister of Economy and Finance, Geraldo Martins, said the projects mentioned were all associated with building infrastructure and would be financed through a pioneering model in Guinea-Bissau.

“For the first time in Guinea-Bissau we have a Private Investment Fund, which will be allocated considerable value and that transfers funds to enable companies to carry out works of public interest,” he said, expressing his conviction that the projects would change the face of Guinea-Bissau and lay foundations for sustainable and inclusive growth.

The twenty projects to be implemented by “Ribert Investment & Business Trust / Indico PLC” in Guinea-Bissau include construction of a new transport terminal, a slaughterhouse, in the Antula area and a bridge over the River Farim, north of Guinea-Bissau and where soon it will start exploration of phosphate deposits.

  • What Game Theory can teach us about the Catalonia crisis

    2017/11/25 Next the arrest of several Catalan ministers and the exile of the rest in Belgium, the situation remains tense and the ultimate outcome unclear, pending December elections in the region. Marc Hernando Santacana argues that game theory can help. Game of Chicken The escalations of events, starting from the Referendum on 1 October until the self-exile of Catalan President Carles Puigdemont in Brussels, fits the mold of the so-called Game of Chicken perfectly. According to this model, two or additional players are in a car race. Obviously, both of them want to win. However, next the finish line there is a cliff, into which neither of the players wants to fall. The players can either accelerate or to brake. If both players accelerate all the way to the finish line they will fall; if one of them accelerates and the other one brakes the former will win; and if both of them brake, they will tie. Essentially, it’s a game of escalation.
