Turnover in Latin America went to CHF 1,694.0 million in 2017 versus CHF 1,531.1 million one year earlier. Organic growth in the division was 10.8%. South American countries, such as Brazil, Uruguay, Chile and Peru performed well. The same applies to the Caribbean operations with Dominican Republic being the leader in this area.
