Shifting Socio-economic Trends, Policy Thrust and Long Term Investment Plans to Drive Digitalization, Green Energy, and Infrastructure Development
After two consecutive years of economic contraction in 2019 and 2020, Latin America achieved a ~7% real GDP growth in 2021. Some of the larger Latin American nations are emerging market growth leaders across the globe, and the region is known for its commodity exports, robust trade, and cost-effective labor. Amidst shifting socio-economic trends post-pandemic, rising debt sustainability concerns, and unique political scenarios, understanding the direction of regional growth is crucial. Factors unique to the health and growth potential of Latin American economies need to be taken into consideration to understand why and how they will become a harbinger of economic growth in the medium and the long term.
This Latin America macroeconomic thought leadership provides a growth snapshot of regional economies through the identification of growth conditions, policy highlights, and economic risks. Decision makers and investors can also leverage insights into the evolution of megatrends under Latin America’s macroeconomic conditions, while also assessing the industry growth prospects across the regional countries.
A key feature of this piece is the focus on megatrends for 6 countries under study, which will help businesses, decision-makers, and policymakers leverage long-term trends for driving profitable and sustainable investments. The research also discusses existing policy structures and megatrends across key Latin American industries and the economic impact of these on long-term industry growth.
