Increasing Trade and Investment Between the UK and Latin America
A view from the Banking, Finance and Fintech Sectors
On 16 September 2020, Canning House hosted a trade policy roundtable on the Latin American Banking, Finance & Fintech Sectors in collaboration with DIT and the City of London Corporation. The event was attended by business leaders representing UK financial services companies with an active interest in Latin America.
The event began with an overview of UK trade activity with Latin America, followed by a presentation on the work DIT is doing to remove market access barriers in order to help UK businesses thrive in Latin America. The opportunities for pension funds, asset management, cryptocurrency and money transfer services was highlighted, along with the importance of following up Free Trade Agreements with commercial opportunities in the region. This was then followed by an interactive roundtable discussion between all participants.
