Ipsos, in partnership with Canning House, provide a full review of our LatAm Outlook, updating our look ahead at the next 5 years and beyond in Latin America for 2022, covering Political, Economic, Social and Security & Corruption, Health and Environmental trends in the region.
Jean-Christophe Salles, CEO Latin America of Ipsos, took part in the presentation during a hybrid conference taking place on December 7th in Central London.
Key findings of the report:
- The pandemic represents an opportunity to take a new public policy direction to build more egalitarian and resilient societies through the implementation of universal, redistributive, and solidarity-based policies with a rights-based approach. Jean-Christophe Salles, CEO Latin America, Ipsos. Download the presentation and find out the key findings
- Politics in the region is polarising more than ever, with centre-ground candidates struggling to break through in opinion polls. Politicians previously confined to the fringes are finding more fertile ground for their ideas. Michael Stott, Latin America editor, Financial Times.
- The economic outlook for Latin America is becoming more challenging. Global GDP growth is predicted to be 3.9% in 2022, compared with an average of 2.23% in Latin America’s big six economies: Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Peru. João Pedro Bumachar Resende, Senior Economist, Itaú Bank.
- The environmental messages are mixed: commitments are being made to international environmental agreements such as the UN Climate Convention, while at the same time commitments to the fossil fuel sector are also being made. Dr David Purkey, Latin America Centre Director, Stockholm Environmental Institute.
- The major health story for the next 5 years will be the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ongoing vaccination roll out and its challenges, and the resultant effects of the outbreak on health systems. Dr Clare Wenham, Assistant Professor of Global Health Policy, London School of Economics.
- Issues that fuel crime such as income inequality, deficient judicial systems, underfunded and inefficient policing, and the proliferation of drugs- and arms-trafficking gangs will continue to undermine any short-term gains in security, while political priorities are likely to focus elsewhere. Oliver Wack, Partner, Control Risks.
A full update to the LatAm Outlook, a 100+ page report on Latin America's next 5 years and beyond, will be launched at this event. All attendees, in person or online, will receive a copy.
