Event description

Description

East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) is delighted to offer companies the opportunity to meet with international trade experts from Brazil, Chile and Colombia in a series of 1-2-1 business development meetings.


SAMERICA


Why South America?

There are many reasons East Midlands companies should consider doing business in South America. With exports of goods to the region amounting to £240m in 2016, there are opportunities for companies in almost all sectors.

Brazil is the seventh biggest economy in the world with a Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of $2.3 trillion. Benefits for UK businesses exporting to Brazil include an expanding consumer market and a European oriented culture and business practices.

Chile is the fifth largest economy in South America and has the highest level of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita in the region. Its economy has more than doubled in size since 2004. Chile also ranks seventh in the Index of Economic Freedom and is Latin America’s top ranked country in World Bank’s ease of doing business ranking; a business can be set up in a single day in Chile.

Colombia is the UK's fifth-largest export market in South America and is ranked by the World Bank as the 34th easiest country to do business. Over 100 UK businesses operate in Colombia, including well known companies like Virgin, BT, and Shell, as well as many small and medium sized companies.
