Pacific Alliance Seminar

SEMINAR: Why is the Pacific Alliance relevant for you? Join this seminar and learn why the trade agreement is a poten-tial game changer in Latin America

At this seminar, we will present the Pacific Alliance and all it entails from a Danish company perspective. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to ask questions concerning the markets, the Pacific Alliance and the free trade agreements between the countries and the EU.

The Pacific Alliance is a regional integration initiative formed by Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru in the spring of 2011. The goal is for the four countries to act as a unified economic bloc to negotiate and trade with other countries. Member governments have committed to open markets, free trade policies, fiscal stability, openness to foreign investment, and strengthening trade relations with other countries.

The four member countries have embraced free trade as far back as the 1980s and have multiple free trade agreements with many countries, including the European Union. They represent 37 pct. of Latin America’s population, 35 pct. of its total GDP and 50 pct. of its imports.

Chile, Mexico, Colombia and Peru are four of the best managed and most resilient economies in the region. They have a combined population of over 216 million, and account for half of Latin America’s exports and around 35 pct. of region’s GDP. All four markets have young populations, and rank in the top 60 of countries for ease of doing business. The countries provide a potential for productivity and production, consumption, savings and investment capacity.
