According to the Association of Latin American Industrialists (Aila) intra-regional trade in Latin America is at 22%, "a very low level" compared to over 60% among European countries. In that sense, the Aila on Friday urged Latin American countries to "strengthen the commercial relations of the region."
In a communiqué, the Aila notes that the perspective of business among nations is changing, in terms of "the benefits of the transnational exchange of goods and services as part of world economic activity." That is why the Aila calls for promoting international trade in general and increasing intra-regional trade, as means to spur economic and social growth," the communiqué reads.
