BT at the World Economic Forum on Latin America 2017
05 - 07 April 2017
Latin America has reached an inflection point. Its economies are adapting their monetary and fiscal strategies in the face of a period of slower growth and budget cuts. The region is also experiencing historic political milestones, advancing structural reforms and opening for further integration, as inclusiveness and poverty reduction remain high on the agenda. The region needs to put in place innovative measures to consolidate social accomplishments, further its economic resilience, sustainability and competitiveness, and improve its credibility as a leading business environment.
In this context, the Fourth Industrial Revolution can be a critical driver for achieving the vision of an entrepreneurial, innovative and inclusive Latin America.
The region’s ongoing transformation is well exemplified in this year’s host country. Argentina – a G20 economy with vast resources – is dynamically adopting a new economic framework, re-entering international credit markets, and driving technological and digital transformations across sectors.
