The World Affairs Council of Austin and the Kozmetsky Center of Excellence in Global Finance at St. Edward’s University host a series of Forums on Global Investment, Finance, Emerging Markets and Geopolitical Risk. Our next Forum will feature a lively discussion with Sebastian Gomez, Co-Founder of Thorus Consulting, and David Sandler, Co-Founder at Remarks, on the important details a business investor should consider when looking at expanding and selling into Latin America. Mexico and the rest of Latin America represent the United States’ second-largest trading partner and second-largest export market, and interest is increasing from Texas corporations.
