Country Risk Breakfast Briefing
Growth Opportunities and Emerging Threats: The Outlook for Latin America and Africa
Please join us on 19 November, at the IHS Westheimer office, for a breakfast briefing on growth opportunities and emerging threats in Latin America and Africa.
What are the key global drivers of political and violent risk in emerging markets and the implications for business operations and investment strategies? There are a range of emergent geopolitical developments that have the potential to shock and shape global markets and supply chains. We will forecast the outlook for some of these risks, including:
- Balancing act: Risks of policy instability and unrest risks in lower oil price environment
- Islamic State advances into sub-Saharan Africa: Impact on militant capability and target selection in the region
- Prospects for the peace process in Colombia and its implications for war and terrorism risk affecting energy assets, government property, aviation and cargo.
- Political outlook in Argentina following October’s presidential elections
- Political, civil unrest and security related risks in Brazil in light of current unstable political environment – attempts to impeach Rousseff and the full impact of the Lava Jato scandal
