Several years ago, GGI divided its Latin-American Region into four subregions (Mexico, Central America, the Andes and Mercosur), in an effort to increase efficiency. This year Dr Miguel Mantelli, Regional CEO of the Latin American region, has organised subregional meetings. These meetings enabled members to get to know each other better and cement business partnerships or even friendships amongst GGI fellows, to exchange experiences, ideas and views and to create a sound basis for new business referrals. Subjects discussed during the subregional meetings included cooperation with North American GGI members, involvement in GGI Practice Groups, international conferences and, last but not least, generating new business opportunities for GGI members.
Subregional meetings, hosted by GGI member firms, took place in four different locations. The Mercosur subregion met in Montevideo, Uruguay, on 7 February, which was hosted by the MDV Group and Carle & Andrioli. The meeting between the Central America and Caribbean subregions took place on the same day in Panama City, Panama, and was hosted by Quijano & Asociados. The Mexico subregion meeting was held in Monterrey, Mexico on 8 April and was hosted by Saldívar & Asociados. Finally, Vargas, Alencastre, García S.C. hosted the meeting for the Andes subregion members on 28 April in Lima, Peru.
This year’s Latin American regional conference will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 14-17 August 2014, kindly hosted by GGI member firms Banco Fiscal, Monteiro e Monteiro and Grupo Work. The conference will be conducted in Spanish and will be held at the Shera- ton Rio Hotel & Resort.
A combination of presentations and interactive work will form the event’s agenda. Dr Miguel Mantelli will update the audience on the latest developments and planned projects in the region. Practice group meetings will enable delegates to exchange topic-related expertise, experiences and ideas. Presentations will be focusing on various subjects, for example transfer-pricing. Subregional meetings and workshops will take place on the Saturday. In the afternoon, a sightseeing programme will allow delegates to network and to meet in a relaxed en- vironment. All conference documents (delegate programme, registration form and invitation) can be found on the GGI website (member login > events > Latin American Conference Rio de Janeiro).
