Globally Connected: Victoria's Latin America Trade and Investment Strategy

The Globally Connected: Victoria’s Latin America Trade and Investment Strategy was launched on 29 May 2018 by The Hon. Philip Dalidakis MLC, Minister for Trade and Investment at the Australia-Latin Business Council and Trade and Investment Victoria dinner.

Key stakeholders in the Victoria-Latin America relationship attended the event, which underscored the momentum that has been established since the Victorian Government opened an office in Santiago in 2016 and since direct flights to Santiago were launched by LATAM Airlines in October 2017.

The Strategy sets out the Victorian Government’s vision for enhanced engagement with Latin America as well as underscoring the important efforts and initiatives that have taken place to date to strengthen Victoria’s relationship with the region.

The Victorian Government is committed to informing Victorian stakeholders, including the business and education sectors about the opportunities to collaborate and do business beyond traditional partners and to understand the diverse opportunities that Latin America presents.

Priority sectors include Mining and METS, International Education, Food and Agricultural Innovation and Liveability, while emerging sectors include Tourism and Major Events and Medical Technology and Pharmaceuticals.

The Government plans to increase Victoria’s exports to Latin America as well as grow student numbers and visitors from Latin America going forward.
