Growth in the Latin American and Caribbean region in 2014 is set to outpace 2013 levels, spurred by promising new developments in the region and continued strength despite a deepening of the financial crisis in Europe and a slowdown in the commodities boom.

To understand challenges and opportunities in these markets for 2014, the CCA presented a panel of experts on the region. They explored regional economic prospects and drilled down into the countries and industries of the region to provide Canadian Americas watchers with competitive intelligence and analysis.

Panelists included Jonathan Hausman, vice-president of Alternative Investments and Fixed Income Emerging Markets at the Ontario Teacher’s Pension Plan; Samantha Alfonso, a partner of Fasken Martineau; John Price, co-founder and managing director of Americas Market Intelligence; and Eduardo Suarez, a director at Scotiabank. The CCA’s president Marina Jimenez moderated the discussion.
