FIPRA Expands Its Network Footprint in Latin America
The FIPRA Network welcomes its new members in Brazil, Central America & the Caribbean, Chile and Colombia. The inauguration of these partners allows the Network to provide comprehensive services across the Americas.
FIPRA is happy to announce a significant expansion of its network presence in Latin America, which will further strengthen its regional expertise, linked with a region that is increasingly impacted by EU decision-making. Recent EU developments focused on supply chain transparency and combating deforestation (such as the EU Deforestation Regulation) will have considerable impacts on companies sourcing and manufacturing in Latin America and bringing goods into the EU market.
We are proud to welcome our new partners in Brazil, Central America and the Caribbean, Chile, and Colombia, complementing our existing FIPRA Network partner in Mexico. This strategic move reinforces FIPRA’s commitment to providing comprehensive solutions to clients navigating the intricate regulatory landscape of Latin America and will provide one of the most comprehensive public affairs offers in the region.
We are excited to offer clients a one-stop shop for understanding and navigating Latin America’s complex regulatory landscape.”
