Exporting From Latin America

In the last couple years, there were massive expectations for the export market in Latin America. Those hopes have since come back down to earth with some companies exiting their original expansion plans in the region. There are still real opportunities with Colombia and Uruguay offering the most mature regulations for production, but how limited will those opportunities be? This session will look at the current export market and provide realistic expectations for the markets in Colombia and Uruguay.  In this session, you will learn:

 

  • What businesses looking to export need to know about the regulatory paths in Colombia and Uruguay and associated costs
  • Considerations for exporting to other countries outside of Latin America
  • Expected reforms ahead in both

Developing The Internal Market: Revenue Opportunities Within Latin America

Most of the discussion surrounding Latin America has been about export opportunities to Europe and North America, but what revenue opportunities are currently within the region?

  • Requirements to sell within Brazil and what types of products are allowed
