Description

Texas - Latin America Business Summit Helps Texas Companies Access Nearshore Expanding Markets

The World Affairs Council of Austin will present the Third Annual Texas-Latin America Business Summit on 4 October from 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm. The Summit brings trade promotion experts and business decision-makers together for panels and meetings with the Texas business community. The event is a unique face-to-face opportunity for Austin corporate representatives to make connections and learn about current inbound and outbound business opportunities with Brazil, Mexico and several other Latin American nations.

Over the last decade, the region experienced a deep economic and social transformation, which lifted millions out of poverty and swelled the ranks of the middle class. Latin America’s economy is expected to expand 2.0% against a backdrop of stronger global growth. Attend the Summit and learn how your company may benefit from this growth.
