Enthusiasm for business entry into Latin America may overshadow the need to properly understand and evaluate potential challenges and risks of doing business in the region.
Latin American countries are currently battling serious problems including poor infrastructure, high levels of crime, wealth disparity and corruption, which has become a primary concern and is under public scrutiny like never before.
