Editor’s Note

“Nothing ruins Friday like finding out it’s only Tuesday!” On that note, welcome to the fifth instalment of our six-week Latin American Weekly Intelligence Report pilot.
As always, our introductory 2-minute video above will give you a rapid overview of the hot topics we’re covering this week.
You will notice that this is not your typical newsletter, but rather a collection of concise articles, charged with unique perspectives from our informed and impartial primary sources across the region.
Once again, we see that the international press continues to miss important details in their coverage of Latin American news, this week on Total in Brazil, Codelco in Chile and President Viscarra in Peru. Our source-led, 350-word articles aim to fill this information void to support your understanding and decision-making.
The positive and encouraging feedback continues to arrive, so thank you all for your continued support. We have already started to work on our new content platform, incorporating your feedback, and it’s looking great – I’m excited for the launch in October.
As always, please use the form on the right to request topics you would like us to cover and get in touch if you would like a deeper dive on anything we have already covered.
As ever,
