Economic and Trade Impact of COVID-19 in Latin America

In recent weeks we have seen how Latin American countries have unevenly adopted measures to mitigate the effects of COVID-19. There is no doubt that many of these measures will paralyze wide economic sectors, meaning governments will need to take significant stimulating steps to boost their economies, maintain security and ensure social peace.

Discussion Points: 
– Is there a nationalisation risk? Protection of foreign investments.
– Governments: fiscal measures, access to funds (subsidies) and easing of payment obligations.
– Role of multilateral institutions.
– Force Majeure interpretation: is it applicable in this crisis?
– How can foreign investors work with LatAm Governments in fighting COVID-19
