  • Trade Source Article
    The latest edition of TradeSource features market snapshots of the “Look South” markets of Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Panama, and Peru. We interview U.S. Commercial Service officers working in each country who share their on-the-ground insights and advice for entering each market. Look South markets offer the unique combination of (a) similar language and business cultures; (b) attractive market size; (c) robust economic growth; and (d) free trade agreement (FTA) partner country status. In each of these FTA partner countries, U.S. companies enjoy several competitive advantages, including lower tariff rates (reduced to zero for most goods) and more stable and transparent business environments.
