LATIN AMERICA: SURGING AS THE NEXT BUSINESS FRONTIER
Latin America is thinking carefully about its future. To return to faster growth and without running the risk of jeopardizing recent economic and social gains, Latin America is addressing structural weaknesses, diversifying its economies and closing the productivity gap. The region needs to develop new businesses, in industry and services, initiate productive development policies to foster new enterprises and diversify its exports. How does Latin America diversify its economy and major exports? What role will trade agreements and intra-regional trade play in greater economic growth? What new industries will take over from commodities? What role will technology and innovation play? How can more Latin American companies evolve into successful multinational players?
The 2016 Latin American Business Conference will bring together respected and influential private and public sector leaders across multiple industries and disciplines to explore these questions and forecast what is to come as Latin America considers its future and returns to stronger economic growth; diversifies its industries and exports beyond commodities; stimulates innovation and technology advancement; leverages trade integration; and continues in its social transformation to become the next business frontier.
