What would you Ask a Leader?
When leaders gather in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for the World Economic Forum on Latin America, you too can join the conversation by posting a question to the World Economic Forum’s Ask a Leader YouTube channel at

During the three-day meeting from 16 to 18 April 2012, we will install a recording booth at the Social Media Corner and invite regional and global leaders from business, government, industry, academia and the media to respond to questions from the public.

Submit your questions, on the meeting’s theme – Regional Transformation in a New Global Context- via text or video to or Google moderator. 

Questions will be selected by the World Economic Forum and those voted for by you. Video responses will then be uploaded to the Forum’s Ask a Leader YouTube channel, where you can watch participants’ video blog answers and share their responses, ideas and visions for a stronger Latin America. All video responses will be uploaded continuously during the meeting and will be available for sharing on your own social media channels.
