Companies across a wide range of industries are increasingly recognising Latin America as a growth region with extraordinary potential and upside. Across the region, a burgeoning middle class, a growing consumer economy and an urgent need for basic infrastructure are creating many business opportunities. In addition, the rising demand for commodities and other exports worldwide, and increasing foreign direct investment, are boosting growth.
Latin America brings some unique challenges, however. Companies who are investing and expanding into the region are facing ever-changing regulatory, tax and political conditions, coupled with rising costs.
