About this video

Foreign investment has been commonly considered as one of the principal wealth generators around the world, especially in underdeveloped countries such as Guatemala. In this conference Travis Seegmiller elaborates on the current situation for Latin America and the Caribbean regarding foreign investment flow and the elements that directly affect it. He explains how both, social and political securities, play an essential role when it comes to the execution of these economic ventures on other countries. Seegmiller also describes how investors analyze when they plan on spending their capital abroad and also which countries have economically incurred the most on the region.  Finally, he describes how foreign capital flow has behaved recently and demonstrates the shifts it has had during the past years based on historical events.
