As sanctions against Russia continue to pile up, a return to the pre-war situation seems illusory, even in the event of an early end to the conflict.

China will continue to expand its role as a main destination for Latin American exports at the expense of the U.S.

Coface observes that LatAm countries’ foreign sales growth rates are expected to exceed their domestic demand expansion.
