Governmental procurement may be crucial to enter or make a name in a new market in LATAM and the Caribbean region. The region’s governments are key players in each economy and, for 2024, are embracing essential challenges that demand private-public collaboration on infrastructure, information technology, healthcare, and renewables energies sectors, to name some of the more active industries for the region.
We are pleased to present the Governmental Procurement Regional Guide (the “Guide”) with the aim of providing a general overview of the opportunities and challenges to contract with governmental entities in 14 jurisdictions, covering Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, México, Nicaragua, Panamá, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay. Through the Guide, you will obtain strategic insights from legal experts that will enable you to understand the state’s role in the market and the main requirements to be a governmental contractor. Moreover, you will find the incentives for governmental procurement, the way to access governmental information, and the main selection mechanisms applied for public procurement in each of the referred jurisdictions.
Some of the most renowned lawyers of some of the best well-known law firms in each jurisdiction have written each chapter of this publication, to whom we are especially grateful for their participation and contributions. The Guide is part of Lloreda Camacho’s regional publications, a multijurisdictional project aimed to make the first contact with a foreign market in LATAM and the Caribbean and the result of a collaboration project with the most outstanding legal firms of the region that will be available to further advice your businesses.
