Elections in LatAm: Will the Pendulum Swing Again?
2018's regional electoral calendar requires three major LatAm economies to go to the polls to elect a new president. Much has changed since the previous election: Brazil's political environment has been shaken by a worldwide corruption scandal, Mexico's economy and international relations have been impacted by the results of the US' election, and although Colombia reached an agreement with the FARC, the implementation of the peace process has been moving slowly and is still resisted by a wide sector of the population, even after the first anniversary of the peace accord. Experts will analyze the risks firms and investors face in the short term, and how this election year could impact long-term regional growth in LatAm.
