A regional outlook for Latin America through 2020. Learn about the top trends impacting multinational companies in LATAM, what potential risks lie ahead, and how companies across industries can take action.

Overview, Table of Contents & Sample Pages below


Latin America will grow at a slightly higher pace in 2020, buoyed by Brazil’s faster recovery, but most other countries will perform at 2019 levels. Weak growth in the region follows a global trend of weaker trade dynamism, flat commodity prices, and higher exposure to trade and policy disruptions. Relative to past years, central banks in Latin America are better equipped to encourage consumption and investment through lax monetary policy, but governments will remain fiscally constrained. As regional executives plan for 2020 they should consider prioritizing resilient markets, relying on new digital tools to create and capture customer value, and making sure that their organizational footprints and channels are responsive enough to unexpected market changes.
