Latin America in the Global Economy

7 July 2014 - 9:00am to 3:30pm

Chatham House, London



This roundtable event will explore how the capacity of Latin America to promote greater productivity through economic integration will be crucial for growth and development, and for ensuring the region remains a key destination for foreign investment. The event will consider intraregional and extraregional trade and financial flows, prospects for better integration into global value chains, and the views from the region’s main trading partners.

What are the new drivers of economic integration in the region? Why has Latin America progressively turned towards the Asia-Pacific in the last decade? Could a broader transatlantic partnership, including Latin America, be a viable option? What is the role of Latin American multinationals, so-called ‘multilatinas’, in a world of ever more complex global value chains? These are some of the questions that will be addressed by a distinguished set of experts, and representatives from the public sector, business, and international organizations.

Attendance is by invitation only.

The event is held with the support of Inter-American Development Bank.

This meeting is the final in a series of events held by the International Economics department as part of the new project 'Latin America: the 'Next Big Thing' within the Global Economy?'.
