Latin America presents opportunities for government and businesses alike. It is a region with countries that are creating new identities and establishing strategic alliances with partners around the globe. And, while Brazil may be the economic engine in the region, countries like Chile, Colombia, and Peru are becoming increasingly attractive global trade partners.
