  • Angela da Rocha, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro


Latin American firms are latecomers in the international arena, although some authors refer to earlier “waves” of internationalization (1960-1970s and 1980s). However, the present “wave” started in the mid-1990s and it is part of a broader phenomenon of the internationalization of emerging market firms. This panel aims to discuss this phenomenon and to debate the challenges and opportunities faced by Latin American firms in their pursuit of internationalization. The panel will include academics, executives and government officials.
