The spread of coronavirus, drop in commodity prices, tighter external funding conditions and falling domestic financial asset prices will weaken economic growth in Latin America substantially this year. Join us for a discussion with the Latin America Sovereign Ratings Group to discuss our ratings outlook for the region against the backdrop of a weak macroeconomic environment.
