April 8, 2021

The 2021 Latin American Business Environment Report (LABER) is now available for download. Published annually since 2000, the LABER provides a yearly review of the business, investment and legal environments in all of the Latin American states, including Cuba and Haiti. This year’s edition, the 22nd in LABER’s history, examines the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on Latin America.

The goal of the LABER is to provide an accessible, balanced evaluation of the economic, social, political, policy and legal developments that affect the region’s business and investment climate.

LABER is the main publication of the Latin American Business Environment Program (LABEP) at the University of Florida Center for Latin American Studies, in collaboration with the Center for Governmental Responsibility (CGR) in the Levin College of Law at the University of Florida.

LABEP serves academia, the general public and business community through publications, courses, career events, and speaking engagements. Through graduate degree concentrations, courses and study abroad opportunities, LABEP draws on the diverse expertise and considerable resources of the University to prepare students for careers related to Latin American business. It also organizes conferences, supports the publication of scholarly research and provides professional consulting services.
