South and North America

The Americas have always been lands of opportunity. Prehistoric settlers and modern immigrants alike have looked to the New World
 for a fresh start in greener pastures. More than anything, the Americas offer variety and choice: from the rich, established
 and progressive economies of Canada and the United States to the fledgling, promising new opportunities of Latin America,
these two continents offer something for everyone. 

Countries in the Americas

North America is a continent rich in economic opportunity and is the largest and most highly-developed economy in the world. The U.S. dollar is the most-used currency in international transactions. The South American continent represents the economy of 12 nations, with Chile and Brazil leading the pack in terms of wealth. Regional economies experienced a growth-spurt in the 1990’s, when the South American nations adopted a Free-Market economy and overcame the debt crisis. Today, mining, agriculture and forestry are South America’s major industries.
