The 2021 Forecast for Latin America

When and how Latin American economies will recover from COVID-19 and what to expect in a highly disrupted region

The COVID crisis has added a whole new challenge to the task of forecasting Latin American market behavior in 2021.

That is why AMI invested considerably more effort in creating its 2021 LatAm Forecasting Forum, published on September 24th, 2020.

The 2021 Latin America Forecast by AMI

Using an easy-to-follow design that allows you to quickly zero in on key data points, AMI’s 2021 Latin America Forecast is divided into 2 parts:
