“De-risking” investments and operations against volatile regulatory backdrops in Latin America

Doing business in Latin America is an ever-evolving venture. With government policies across the region shaking up the status quo in several sectors, regulatory affairs remains an important area for legal teams to navigate. Some sectors are expected to face more hurdles as industries sophisticate, domestic policy priorities change and global geopolitical shifts lead Latin American governments to take a closer look at foreign investors, particularly in strategic sectors. For example, many countries are expected to follow the US and EU in adopting more stringent foreign investment requirements, creating a new layer of regulatory and compliance considerations. In the energy sector, governments in jurisdictions like Colombia and Chile are focusing on the renewables sector, while in Mexico new regulatory hurdles are making renewables projects more difficult to develop and operate. The rapidly changing regulatory environment means legal teams are going to have to adapt, fast. Panelists will present the challenges and solutions needed to reduce the risks that come with operating in regulated areas against volatile political backdrops.

  • The evolving regulatory scene across different sectors, including energy, tech and telecoms
  • What foreign direct investment restrictions impact businesses in the short and long-term
  • How legal teams can present their companies with “de-risk” strategies in regards to public policy, investment protection, warranty and political risk insurance, and more
