The Latin American World Economic Forum took place recently with Soa Paulo as the host city, and as such, hardly surprising that the broad LatAm / Mercosaur region continues to inevitably look to the economic pulling power of Brazil as the region's panacea.
Discussions were held around the following numerous topics:
- A New Deal on Globalisation
- A New Era of Leadership
- An Insight, An Idea with Pele
- Boosting Latin America's Infrastructure
- Breaking the Cycle of Corruption
- E-Commerce: Expanding Trade Horizons
- Equipping the Smart City of Tomorrow
- Global Economic Outlook
- Latin America: Update
- Latin America in a Deals-Based Global Order
- Leading Business with Purpose
- Migration in LatAm: Between Economic Mobility and Humanatarianism
- Mixed Reality Behind the Scenes: 'Awavena'
- New Scenarios for Brazil
- Brazil's New Strategy on Industry 4.0
- Building Trust and Transparency through Technology
- Driving Gender Parity in LatAm
- Improving Competitiveness in Brazil
- Regional Integration: Full Steam Ahead?
- Re-invigorating Brazil's Investment Climate
-Scaling-up Innovation in Agriculture
- Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution
- The Next Latin Unicorn
- The Politics of Misinformation
- The Post-Manufacturing Economy
- The Tide is Turning: International Trade in 2018
To follow will be general summaries and observations about these discussed topics, affecting a myriad of issues: from the continued need for deep-water oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico to help kickstart economies and ironically support green-energy's further traction, through to those potential new trade opportunities in the far distances of Kazakhstan and Central Asia.
