Economic Mission to Chile, Uruguay and Argentina from December 2nd to 8th, 2018

Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

I have the pleasure to inform you that the Chamber of Commerce of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg will organise an economic mission to Chile, Uruguay and Argentina in order to tighten the bilateral relations between our countries. This multi-sectorial mission will take place from December 2nd to 8th, 2018.

The economic mission will focus on the financial sector, the audiovisual sector and on the startup ecosystem. However, all members of the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce are welcome to participate if interested.

According to Euler Hermes, after two years of recession (-0.2% in 2015 and -1.2% in 2016), Latin America’s economic recovery has started in 2017 (+1.2%) and a growth acceleration is expected in 2018 (+2.3%) and 2019 (+2.8%). Argentina, Chile and Uruguay are part of the Southern Cone. High life expectancy, the highest Human Development Index of Latin America, high standard of living, significant participation in the global markets and the emerging economy of its members make the Southern Cone the most prosperous macro-region in Latin America. While Chile has the most developed economy in Latin America (with a GDP of 259 billion USD in 2017), Argentina has the 4th biggest population (43 million in 2017), and Uruguay has the highest income per inhabitant in the Latin America region.

The participating companies will have the opportunity to take part in pre-arranged individual business meetings in each country, as well as to network with local companies during the various events organised by the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce with its local partners in Chile, Uruguay and Argentina. Companies may also participate in networking receptions and various opportunities to meet key players will be provided.

You can find additional information and a more detailed draft of the program here.

If you are interested in registering for the accompanied visit, you are kindly requested to duly complete the online registration form no later than September 19th, 2018. For further information about this upcoming mission, feel free to contact Violaine Mathurin / Déborah Varoqui (latinamerica@cc.lu -T:+352 42 39 39-481/531).

 

Sincerely Yours,

Carlo Thelen
