The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration (ITA), is organizing a Cybersecurity Business Development Mission to Santiago, Chile; Montevideo, Uruguay; and Lima, Peru, March 1-5, 2021, along with an optional stop in Buenos Aires, Argentina on March 8, 2021.
Mission Participants Will: Learn about regional priorities, policy and regulatory changes, projects, and business opportunities. Make industry and government contacts. Have one-on-one business appointments with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors, or joint venture partners in Chile, Peru, and Uruguay with optional appointments available in Argentina. Participate in Networking Receptions. Solidify business strategies and advance specific project goals. Why You Should Join: The purpose of this trade mission is to introduce U.S. firms to rapidly expanding markets for cyber-security products and services in South America.
The mission will help participating firms and trade associations to gain market insights, make industry contacts, solidify business strategies, and advance specific projects, with the goal of increasing U.S. exports to Peru, Chile, Uruguay, and Argentina. By participating in an official U.S. industry delegation, rather than traveling to Peru, Chile, Uruguay, and Argentina on their own, U.S. companies will enhance their ability to secure meetings in those countries and gain greater exposure to the region. By participating in the mission, U.S. companies will partake in customized, one-on-one, business appointments with pre-screened potential buyers, agents, distributors, and/or joint venture partners through which they may export their products and services to the region.
The Mission will provide opportunities for participants to have policy and regulatory framework discussions with foreign government representatives in order to advance U.S. cybersecurity sector interests and it will provide participants with an opportunity to meet with local governments and/or associations, to foster long-term partnerships, and to share best practices.
