Welcome to the 2009 Latin American Investment Summit
After years of heady economic growth, Latin America is now facing an abrupt slowdown that could reignite ghosts of the region’s repeated bust-and-boom cycles that many hoped was finally behind them.
When the global recession began in the United States, many Latin American leaders insisted the crisis would only affect developed countries, arguing the region’s recent growth was the result of sound economic policies. But months later they saw their own economies hit by the fallout.
Reuters fifth Latin American Investment Summit will feature more than 50 of the most influential businessmen, politicians and regulators who will give insight on where they think the region is heading. The Summit will take place in 15 cities in Latin America, the United States and Europe and will generate a series of exclusive interviews and articles from our team of expert reporters, as well as regular blog postings and online video, which will be immediately available only to Thomson Reuters’ clients.
