LatinFinance will hold the Second Latin America Mid-East Investors Forum (LA-MEIF) in Abu Dhabi on April 26 and 27, which will connect Middle Eastern investors with LatAm companies and funds offering new and attractive investment opportunities, said a statement yesterday.
This interregional initiative is the only of its kind, and is very timely considering recent investments and partnerships between the Mideast and Latin America. Delegates have two full days to meet and engage with Latin American executives, and will be enrolled in the LatinFinance 1-1 meeting planner upon registering. Five weeks prior to the event, the 1-1 meeting planner will open for all event attendees to arrange meetings with each other.
The 1-1 meetings will be complemented by a series of panel discussions and networking opportunities so that both groups – Mideast investors as well as Latin American executives – can learn about each other and what it takes to get a successful deal done.
Latin American and international delegates to the 2009 LA-MEIF included representatives from AEI Energy, America Movil, America Petrogas, Baker and McKenzie, Banco do Brasil, BCP Securities, Bladex, Brazil Capital, Casas GEO, CAF, Chadbourne and Park, Delta, Embassy of Argentina, IDB, IGS, IIG, Itau, Odebrecht, OGX, Santander, Southern Cross, Thompson & Knight, Unibanco, Verax, Vision Brazil, and others.
Mideast investors at the 2009 LA-MEIF included representatives from Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, Abu Dhabi Investment Council, Abu Dhabi Ports Company, Al Baraka Islamic Bank, AlBilad Investment, Amwal Al Khaleej and others.
