Latin America News August 2017

2 LATIN AMERICA NEWS / Issue 2 2017 Editor’s Note , It is our pleasure to showcase the 2nd edition of Latin America News. Technology remains a vital and constantly growing market in the Latin America region, therefore we have a number of articles in this issue which showcase the varied and exciting developments in the market from across the region. A key example is the news that the Latin America ERP software market is expected to reach $2.73 billion by 2025, ERP applications have helped many large-scale organisations to bring clarity and visibility in their business. Increased international focus on Latin America has also led to an influx in support and funding, with UK Export Finance (UKEF) recently announcing that it is doubling its support for UK trade with Peru to at least £4 billion, an additional £2 billion in finance available. This will offer many great investment opportunities for the region, as we highlight further in the magazine. The waste management industry in the region is also due a shakeup, as Boulevard Acquisition Corp. II, a blank check company sponsored by an affiliate of Avenue Capital Group and Estre Ambiental S.A., the largest waste management company in Brazil and Latin America, jointly announced recently 16th that they have entered a definitive agreement pursuant to which Boulevard will combine with Estre to produce a colossal firm which will change this vital market for the better.
