Recap: Latin America Needs Canada’s Model for Boosting Investor Confidence

Over the last year, Latin America has seen a significant dip in investor confidence, with the flow of foreign direct investment (FDI) falling 19% to US$135 billion in 2016, according to the A.T. Kearney’s FDI Confidence Index 2017.

Comparatively, Canada managed to retain its top five position in the Index for the fifth consecutive year.

According to Erik Peterson, Partner & Managing Director at A.T. Kearney, “The future is in technology and innovation, and focusing on attracting FDI in those areas. Consistent infrastructure investments have been key to the long-term success of the Canadian economy.”

In this Nearshore Americas article, we discover that if Nearshore countries can follow Canada’s lead in its approach to FDI attraction, investor confidence will be boosted on a regional scale.
