In view of the ongoing developing situation and different communications and instructions being issued by Sanitary Authorities of the Argentine Government we have chosen to send a consolidated daily report at the closing of working hours with an update of the day’s news.
National Holiday: Monday, June 15th, Güemes Day. Saturday, June 20th, Flag Day.
Covid-19 National Quarantine: The National Quarantine has now been extended until June 28th.
At the main ports the sanitary measures remain unchanged and attendance is well coordinated. The Ship’s Agency tasks are allowed to continue with few restrictions and strict sanitary procedures are applied. Upriver ports are working close to normal with strict sanitary enforcement.
As mentioned before Bahia Blanca and Necochea are very rigid imposing in nearly all cases a 14 day quarantine on arriving vessels. The 14 days are counted as from departure from the last port of call.
Export licenses: Export licenses were issued Monday 08th for 145,000 metric tons of maize, 90,000 metric tons of wheat, 50,000 metric tons of feed barley, 22,000 metric tons of malt and 18,000 metric tons of soyoil.
Vicentin: There has been no more formal news regarding the expropriation of the company. What we do know is that Government “overseers” arrived in Avellaneda and Reconquista (North Santa Fé) and they were chased out by the employees and local town people.
