Dominican Republic is the tenth largest economy in Latin America and the largest in the Caribbean and Central region, making it a very attractive destination for foreign investment in infrastructure, energy, real estate, tourism, agriculture, services and new sectors like film, technology and new media. The continued success of its national economy lies in the ability of Dominicans to leapfrog outdated development models, adopt new technologies, create a strong human capital base and remain a flexible host to incoming industries. This is the responsibility undertaken by construction firms like Constructora AE, SRL based in Santo Domingo and one of the country’s most recognized design and construction firms.

The Chilean company Camanchaca was founded in 1965, taking its name from the distinctive cloud patterns that form over the coast where its fishing trawlers have operated until today.

The Brazilian state of Minas Gerais is not as well known internationally as Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo, but the state may be the most important for Brazilians. Not only is it Brazil’s largest state by territory - covering more area than mainland France - it is also a powerhouse of agriculture and industry, and home to several of Brazil’s most important companies.

 

One such company is the energy firm, Cemig. With its headquarters in Belo Horizonte, the capital of Minas Gerais, it is responsible for around 12% of the electricity produced on the Brazilian national grid. As of 2018, it has over 50 power plants - most of them hydroelectric - and owns around 6,000 MW of generation capacity.
