拉丁美洲 is heading towards several high-stakes elections in the coming quarters that have the potential to significantly affect policy direction and investment in the short and long term. The Covid-19 pandemic has broadly weakened household incomes and highlighted many of the region’s structural weaknesses, which will likely drive anti-incumbent sentiment ahead of major elections in 智利, 阿根廷, 哥伦比亚 and 巴西.
此外, many 拉丁美洲n governments face more difficult policymaking environments and less favourable conditions for implementing market-friendly reforms. Tensions between presidents and legislators, or between the executive branch and other state institutions, will underpin elevated political risks in the quarters ahead.
主题s covered will include:
- Key elections in 智利, 阿根廷, 哥伦比亚 and 巴西 in Q421 and 2022
- Ongoing political risks throughout the region tied to Covid-19 responses, disagreements about policy direction and intragovernmental tensions
- Resource nationalism and risks to extractive industries throughout 拉丁美洲
