Country consulting Brazil, Argentinia, Chile and Uruguay / Paraguay
Weekly consulting on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon
Brazil is a huge market with a population of 209 million and a GDP of $ 2.14 trillion (at current prices). Despite the ups and downs of its cyclical economy, the country forms a hub in the LATAM region with numerous opportunities in sectors such as life sciences, agricultural industry and infrastructure.
Chile is an attractive market for Swiss SMEs and an ideal pilot country and hub in Latin America. Compared to other Latin countries, it offers political and economic stability, legal certainty and a business friendly environment. The relation to Switzerland is well established with a Free Trade Agreement (EFTA), a double tax treaty and investment protection agreement, having already attracted more than 200 Swiss companies generating over 30’000 jobs. The Chileans place great value in the Swiss brand.
Especially Cleantech companies and innovative SMEs of other sectors like Life Sciences have great opportunities in Chile and will find a good infrastructure in place to expand their business.
Argentina is the third largest economic power in Latin America with a GDP of $ 520 billion (after Brazil and Mexico). The economy has doubled in the past 20 years. Beginning with the outbreak of COVID 19, the government offered benefits related to imports of drugs and medical devices. Moreover several new public tenders related to cleantech, oil and gas, mining, construction, and infrastructure projects are announced that are open to international investors and solution providers. High-tech and innovation are also still required for the traditional Argentine industry (agricultural and food industry). Thanks to the high-level public education system, the Argentine labor market offers a large number of highly qualified and young professionals.
