Trade and Investment Opportunities in Latin America

25 July 2017 - 08:00 to 09:15

Chatham House, London


Richard Lapper, Associate Fellow, Global Economy and Finance, Chatham House

Chair: Rodrigo Aguilera, Latin America Analyst



Latin America’s largest economies – Brazil, Mexico and Argentina – are slowly emerging from years of economic downturn and recession. Raw materials such as oil, gas and minerals are an obvious source of investment interest and there is also continued expansion in consumer sectors such as food, drink, cosmetics and fashion goods as well as major planned infrastructure investment.

Having recently returned from trips to Mexico, Colombia, Peru and Ecuador, Richard Lapper, a former Latin America editor at the Financial Times, will argue that, as British business sets its sights beyond the European Union, Latin American markets deserve greater attention.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.

This event is only open to Major Corporate Member and Partner organizations of Chatham House. If you would like to register your interest, please RSVP to Linda Bedford. We will contact you to confirm your attendance.
