In recent years Latin America has lived up to its reputation of being the world region of opportunities and disappointments all at once. Some of the economies have suffered serious economic or political challenges, while others have seen a steady growth performance and stabilization of its markets for growth. But things can change rapidly due to domestic and global challenges.

In this panel discussion, experts from Latin America will discuss the region’s prospects through the lens of economic and business opportunities.

Join this webcast to examine:

  • Comparative performance and business condition in Latin America’s economies
  • Economic and policy challenges, and how businesses respond
  • Can Latin America even be approached as a “single” market?

Who Should Attend: Business practitioners involved in strategy and development, as well as anyone who is responsible for business in the Latin America region.
