Investment and trade between India and Latin America increased to US$23bn in 2010 from $2.1bn in 2000, and is projected to reach $30bn by 2012 illustrating that the relationship between the two regions is growing deeper and becoming strategically important to the global economy.
From NMDC's $1bn Greystone Mineracao deal to Jindal’s $2.3bn El Mutun iron project to OVL’s $500mn investment in oil fields to Shree Renuka’s $350mn acquisition in Brazil, there are many examples of successful investments, JVs and acquisitions by Indian companies in Latin America, and across a variety of sectors. With compelling opportunities to forge partnerships and diversify into high growth markets,the pipeline of deals between institutions from both ends has grown to an unforeseen level.

It is aimed at educating investors and their advisers from India and Latin America, including senior officers of major corporations, direct investors, entrepreneurs, high net-worth individuals, family offices, sovereign wealth funds, private equity funds, pension funds, and asset managers.
