Our work

Canning House produces a high-quality programme of events and publications. Discover how we work to promote Latin America and Iberia in the United Kingdom.

Everything you need to know about Latin America, in one place.

The Canning House LatAm Outlook was first launched in March 2020, offering a look ahead at the next 5 years and beyond across key trends in Latin America through the lens of the region's six largest economies - Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. It is fully updated annually.

The Outlook now covers seven chapters: Latin America's place in the world, and its politics, economics, society, risk, environment and commerce.

Produced in partnership with

In Canning House's Sustainable Trade & Investment Series, we convene conferences on the key sectors shaping Latin America today, and its sustainable future: energy, technology, finance, infrastructure, mining, agriculture, pharmaceuticals and more.

Bringing together senior speakers, high-level audiences and top global partners, these conferences take the pulse of Latin America's key opportunities and risks for businesses, and how the region is working to meet its Sustainable Development Goals.

The UK-Brazil Conversa is an annual forum for dialogue between policymakers and influencers, business leaders, academics, diplomats and governments, to help build closer relations and contacts between Brazil and the UK. It was founded in 2014 by former UK Ambassador to Brazil, Alan Charlton.

Alternating between the UK and Brazil, the Conversa was established to help explore how to make more of the contacts and links between the two countries. In order to encourage free-flowing and open conversations, discussion groups are small and sessions are held in closed conditions.

Conversa is a non-profit venture funded by sponsors. It is supported by the Brazilian and British governments, with Canning House acting as Secretariat. Participation is by invitation only.

Honorary Co-Presidents

Gilberto Gil, Minister of Culture, Brazil, 2003-2008

William Hague, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, UK, 2010-2014

Each year, Canning House publishes a selection of research papers on political and economic trends and issues in Latin America, as well as papers focusing on specific industries and commercial sectors.

To date, the papers have covered topics as diverse as election analysis, corruption, renewable energy and private equity in Latin America. The papers aim to offer essential insights into the most pressing socioeconomic and geopolitical issues, and business risks and opportunities in emerging sectors.
