Meaning Business: Let's talk Latin America and the Carribean


Due to the physical distance, Latin America's commercial potential is still often overlooked, but the continent is very close to Europe in terms of culture and business mentality. The EU also sees Latin America as a partner in its strategy to ensure access to raw materials and to diversity supply chains.

The continent therefore occupies a prominent place in the European Commission's Global Gateway Programme.

During this webinar, organised by Belgian Chambers, speakers from the business community, the Belgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the European Commission will highlight the business opportunities that the region has to offer.

The event will take place online, and the registration is possible via this link.
