Returning to Colombia and hosted in Medellín, the World Economic Forum on Latin America 2016 convenes at a remarkable time for the city: Medellín’s transformation over the past two decades is a stark example of successful 21st-century urban innovation.

At the same time, Colombia is close to a historic accord that promises opportunities for sustained peace, economic progress and social inclusion. These inspiring achievements teach valuable lessons and are a reminder that socio-economic advances require constant attention as well as concerted and strategic action.

The meeting takes place from 16 to 17 June, and below you will find instructions on how to follow #la16 via our social media channels, how to embed live broadcasts and how to access the photographs taken during the event.
