Consider the political and economical environment

Although many Latin American nations maintain a stable political and economical environment, it is necessary to understand the economic cycles of every country. You can get that information from the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (CEPAL).

Know the language and culture

It is crucial to understand the culture of the country you will make business and will certainly make the difference in the relationship you build between your clients and suppliers and your business. Knowing the language is also important, although you might speak it fluently, the mannerisms could be misinterpreted so learning more about them and local expressions might save you some misunderstandings.
