Latin America Highlights 2014

Panama, the host of this year's World Economic Forum on Latin America, embodies the region's progress and potential. The country is a thriving international hub of trade and investment in the Americas and has demonstrated impressive economic performance and stable growth rates of over 10% in recent years. It offers a strategic geographic position in the centre of the Americas, being further enhanced with the development of modern infrastructure and the expansion of the Panama Canal, which is to coincide with the celebration of its centenary at the meeting.
