Please join us for our Miami Executive Roundtable. This event will gather LATAM regional executives from leading multinationals in the B2C, B2B and B2G sectors, and will be aimed primarily at surfacing best practices for tapping into corporate resources to fund ambitious growth plans in 2019. We will also explore ways to deliver on more aggressive targets in the likely scenario in which corporate resources to Latin America do not increase at the same pace as targets will.
Despite remaining political and economic instability stemming from the region’s “election super-cycle” and the NAFTA renegotiation, Latin America is expected to grow at 2.6% in 2018, with 62.5% of regional executives reporting top-line targets between zero and ten percentage points higher than in 2017. As political and external headwinds subside in 2019, it can be expected that investment growth will resume in key LATAM markets, lifting consumption and government spending along the way. These dynamics will put Latin America on an even-faster-growth pace of 3.2% in 2019.
However, with growth in Latin America remaining below the emerging market average (5% in 2019), US economic activity accelerating, and the introduction of new US government policies aimed at encouraging higher investment in the US, there will be pressure on multinationals to reallocate resources away from Latin America. In this environment, it will be paramount to make the case for the region, focusing on long-term opportunities and demonstrating that Latin America can deliver sustained and profitable growth.
