How Doing Due Diligence in Latin America Can Help Your Business

Latin America stretches from Mexico to the bottom of South America and encompasses many different countries and cultures, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Panama, Peru and Venezuela, among others. As a whole, unfortunately, Latin America has a reputation for corruption and bribery when it comes to doing business. These things have been generational– it’s not like corruption and bribery are a new thing. That said, there have been positive changes in recent times. However, if you plan to do business in Latin America, due diligence is paramount.
