Think of a place where the world’s most prestigious companies establish their regional headquarters. Think of a place where people hold university degrees and speak fluent English. Think of a place where you can produce high quality work at low rates and within US time zones. Think of a place where people have European roots and where the economy is booming and open to new opportunities. You are thinking of São Paulo, Buenos Aires or Santiago. You are Thinking Latin America. In this talk, Gaston Irigoyen will summarize some key aspects of Latin America and explain why European businesses can benefit from outsourcing work or even establishing local offices in the region.

This session was presented at think! Latin America Dublin, organized by CCaps and SpeakLatam.
