Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru: Better Together

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

With the creation of the Pacific Alliance three years ago, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru decided to move toward deeper economic and commercial integration.
Our four countries represent 214 million people, and our economies have a combined GDP of $2.1 trillion, which accounts for 37 percent of Latin America’s total GDP. Our foreign trade adds more than $1.13 trillion, and we receive 45 percent of total foreign investment flows in Latin America.
The Promotional entities ProChile, ProColombia, ProMéxico and PromPerú, and close work between the public and private sectors, LAB4 was created to be a laboratory of ideas concerning entrepreneurship and innovation which seeks to create the environment for businesses to be global.
In the panel we will discuss these efforts. We will talk about what experience each country is bringing to the table. And our efforts to create a fertile environment for companies to growth and share capital. Each country’s bringing unique experience.
