Latin America economic growth is forecast to be one of the strongest globally, rising from close to 3% in 2015 to an expected 3.6% in 2019. Brazil (growth projected to increase to 3.5% by 2019), Chile (4.5% by 2019) and Colombia (4.6% by 2019) are anticipated to be the key motors of regional growth.
While West Midlands exports to Latin America since 2009 have been strong – 85% by the end of 2013 – overall at less than 2% of West Midlands total exports, the current level of penetration is modest. Thus, there is considerable potential for deepening this relationship, and building on the vibrant growth sustained between 2009 and 2013 – Brazil (export growth 87% during this period), Chile (203%) and Colombia (30%).
Learn more about your company’s potential from the country experts speaking at our joint UK Trade & Investment/West Midlands Chambers of Commerce Prospects event. You can also arrange in advance to have a 1:1 meeting with the Overseas Chamber or UKTI trade representatives (to book a meeting call 07703 735 408 or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
