Description

In 2014, Latincouver brings the second ExpoPlaza Latina (EPL) international business conference which explores business opportunities between British Columbian and Latin American organizations. Also, year-round dialogue series were incorporated to EPL to offer events focused on specific topics and countries.

In this opportunity, the major theme of the conference was the newly formed Pacific Alliance: a Latin American trading bloc that includes Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru. Discussion focused on how BC can leverage existing bilateral free-trade agreements to promote trade and investment opportunities with this regional block.
