It´s good news that countries of Latam are doing well enough, but even some of those are affected. For example countries like Panama had 10.5 last year and now 7.5%, Peru 6.3% 2012 now 5.9%, Bolivia 5.2% now 5.5%, Nicaragua 4.1% now 5.0%, Chile 5.6% 2012 now 4.6% etc.

    As for Pacific Alliance it will be interesting to see how much their internal comerce grows as well as their exports. I believe PA needs more internal and complemetary comerce to get the integration wished by it´s members as their exports are doing well in general terms.
