International Business in Latin America

Show Summary Details


An examination is made of international business activity in Latin America. It starts by tracing the historical context, and then analyses four issues that are central to international business in Latin America at the beginning of the twenty‐first century. These are the government/business relationship; the impact of subregional integration schemes on competition in the region; FDI in the region and policies to avoid financial crises; and the entry and operation of foreign multinational enterprises (MNEs), and the reaction of local firms to these. Lastly, the relationship of the informal economy to international business in the region is investigated.
