Francisco Pizarro (AGRU Chile) shares his insight into the challenges and opportunities from the Mexico/US border to the tip of Chile. He and Tamara Tuttle identify how geosynthetic companies enter into and expand new markets, how different countries support development (such as oil and gas, mining, transportation, and the use of public-private partnerships), and how geosynthetics serve some of the major needs: project economy, efficiency, and sustainability.

Francisco also shares what it’s like to doing business in Peru with a famous name.
