Top independent freight forwarders from Latin America and their counterparts from other major trading regions will meet in August to discuss the Central/South America/Caribbean marketís import and export prospects.
Organised by WCA Family of Logistic Networks, the 2nd Latin American/Caribbean Regional Conference on August 30-31 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is being held following demand from members for a repeat of the first such gathering three years ago.
The meeting will aim to help members take advantage of WCA Familyís massive group buying power to gain better rates and space allocation from carriers (both air and sea), enable Latin American members to get to know each other better and ensure they are fully conversant with the latest services, benefits and programs offered by WCA Family.
Interest in the region is booming as Latin America has re-emerged as a major trade area with substantial growth of imports and exports, not only within the region. The effects of globalisation, together with political and economic stability in the region, have prompted strong industrial growth, reflected in trade with other world regions. The United States and the European Union are Latin Americaís biggest trading partners. Last year trade between Latin America and the US grew 13.7 percent (representing 38.4 percent of total LatAm trade) while trade between Latin America and EU grew 13.0 percent (representing 12.2 percent of total LatAm trade).
