Networking and information platform for German companies with business interests in Latin America
The Lateinamerika Verein e.V. (LAV) is the networking and information platform for German companies with business interests in Latin America.
It helps companies from all sectors to establish and expand their business activities in Latin America and the Caribbean. In addition, They promote economic, political and social relations between Germany and the countries in the region.
A knowledge transfer and the formation of opinions count among our core tasks. We contribute our recognized expertise – and that of our members – to economic discussions on Latin America. Moreover, we promote and initiate professional movements, bring industry players from both sides together, reinforce contact between decision-makers, and constitute an integral component of the Latin America Initiative of German Business (LAI).
Among our members are companies from both Germany and Latin America – from medium-sized enterprises to global corporations. Associations and public institutions are as much a part of the LAV network as individuals. The board of directors and the executive committee of the LAV is composed of managers and board directors of our member companies.
The LAV is the business network with the highest competence in and about Latin America and offers precise information, consulting and contacts.
Beside the conferences, talks and business trips, the annual Latin-American Day is the most important event for the promotion of the German-Latin-American economic relations. The formal dinner is a unique high level event in presence of Latin-American Heads of State.
The LAV is a competent partner for Associations, Chambers of Commerce, Ministries and diplomatic representations of the Latin-American countries in Germany and is present in the German centers of trade and commerce.
