April 25, 2012 - PRLog -- ROSEVILLE, Minn. – April 24, 2012 – AbleNet participated in the South American Trade Forum to provide expertise on and highlight individuals with disabilities in South America.  The forum included representatives from Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Ecuador.  South America offers companies in the United States a tremendous opportunity to export and import a wide variety of manufactured goods and professional services.  The forum discussed current issues that prohibit opportunities between South American countries and the United States and sought out ways to unlock potential so that economic expansion can take place in both regions.  The host of the event was Medtronic and the CEO, Omar Ishrak, discussed universal access to healthcare with Latin America – a key topic for AbleNet as well.  

“AbleNet has many valuable distributor partners across the South American region,” commented Jennifer Thalhuber, CEO of AbleNet.  “We are committed to improving the lives of people with disabilities and want to do what we can to break down barriers to helping individuals get access to our many assistive technology solutions. With over 370 million people in South America, we know there are many people with disabilities that can benefit from our technology.  We are committed to working with these global leaders to help encourage access to these markets and ultimately to our customers – individuals with disabilities.”

AbleNet currently services the South American market with distributors in numerous countries.  By continuing to create business relationships between these governments, local representation through distributors, and a worldwide manufacturing and product development company yvdycc like AbleNet, the three entities working together can create opportunities for individuals with disabilities throughout the region.  This trade forum provided continued opportunities for improving business between the United States and South America.      

The forum’s initiative is designed to strengthen the cultural, political, and economic ties between South American and the United States.
