This paper is intended to foster discussion of ideas for strengthening the critical relationship between licensing and enforcement in Latin American Countries (LACs), building on the findings of earlier dialogues, including the DR-CAFTA forum held in November 2014 in Santo Domingo. To facilitate discussion, this paper groups the broad range of issues involved into five core themes: the harmonization of goals, proactive approaches, drafting licensing terms, coordinating tasks, and institutional capacity.
