Latin America. Political and economic uncertainties in the Latin American countries have direct repercussions on the future business of the broadcast industry; However, there are projects that GatesAir continues to develop favorably in the region, said Alberto Salazar, director of sales for Latin America and Central America of the company.

"We are doing very well, we have several projects working, but the uncertainty with (Donald) Trump, the North American Free Trade Agreement, have delayed a bit the solution of all these projects. If it were not for that, it would be perfect, "he said.

On the participation of the company in the technological development of new local concessions of digital TV stations, the executive said: "Thanks to that we have many projects, if it were not for that we would be moving equipment, instead of new projects that are important and big. We have been doing very well, we have been in Mexico for many years, I think there is a company here that has a transmitter over 25 years, still working. The brand, as we were Harris before and now we are GatesAir, is very well known and that helps us a lot ".

Salazar said that they have various projects in Mexico and other countries in South America. However, the constant variations of currencies make complex the challenge of the company: "We have many projects in Mexico. The change from analog to digital in Peru, Bolivia, soon in Ecuador has helped us a lot. In Brazil (the variation of currencies) gave us very hard, in Mexico it can be very hard for us. The other thing is if the Free Trade Agreement is renewed, I'm not sure how it affects us, because I do not know what kind of tariff or tariffs we will have to pay. "

And he commented on the company's near future in the Latin American region: "I think we will do very well, better than last year; If nothing happens with our president and he decides to put the black hand on everyone, I think that we will do very well ".
