Forest Business Environment Attractiveness: Comparison of Key Latin American Countries

Jun 2006
This presentation, directed to private sector investors from Finland, is about the investment climate for sustainable forest businesses in selected Latin American countries. The Forest Investment Attractiveness Index (IAIF) and the Process to Improve the Business Climate for Forest Investment (PROMECIF) were also discussed as tools to measure and help to improve the climate. The IAIF allows the systematic, periodic, quantitative and more rigorous analyses of the factors that affect the success of forest direct investment and business decision-making. This presentation was created for the AEL FinPRO Seminar "The Opportunities for the Forest Industry in Latin America," held in Helsinki, Finland on June 8th, 2006.
