The first part of the webinar focused on regional short-term trends and developments that will influence the 2024 economic, political and business outlook for Latin America.
- Why 2023 economic forecasts were generally wrong and why the results were much better than expected (which we also covered in a different article)
- How the anti-incumbency political mood is likely to give way to political rationalization in 2023-2024
- Despite the concerns about newly elected populist presidents, 2023 has shown us that populists have been checked by surprisingly strong institutions in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru
- Foreign direct investment (FDI) will be flat, though AMI analysis and other sources suggest that the 2018-2027 CAGR for FDI will be strong for a number of countries, and we highlight the numbers for them
- 2024 growth projection for Latin America’s economy—and how it compares to projected growth in other world markets/region like US, Canada, China, India, Sub-Saharan Africa, EU and more
- Markets where we will see the most new net spending in 2024
The second part highlighted 5 specific longer-term trends that will impact Latin America not only in 2024 but through the rest of the decade:
- Artificial intelligence
- Climate change
- Gig economy
- Increase regulation of disrupted industries
AMI’s panelists analyzed these particular trends in terms of how they will affect different industries, speaking in broader terms but also indicating specific developments that they expect in specific countries. Among the broader discussion points were:
- How AI will power up productivity while creating regulatory dilemmas and making certain industries obsolete
- Which industries in which countries stand to benefit the most from nearshoring
- Looming threats for fintechs, ride sharing and other disruptive businesses due to regulation
- Why the gig economy is a two-edged sword for the region
- The effect of new regulations to deal with climate change
