World Economic Forum on Latin America

5-7 April 2017 Buenos Aires, Argentina

Latin American economies are adapting their monetary and fiscal strategies
in the face of slower growth and budget cuts. The region is also experiencing
historic political milestones, advancing structural reforms and opening for further
integration. At the same time, inclusiveness and poverty reduction remain high on
the agenda.
The region needs to consolidate its 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 exemplified in this year’s host country.
Argentina – a G20 economy with vast resources – is adopting a new economic
framework, re-entering international credit markets and driving technological and
digital transformation across sectors.
Participants at the World Economic Forum on Latin America will explore the
challenges, risks and opportunities for Latin America in this transitional period.
They will discuss the region’s political, economic and societal issues, including
the transparency, agility and long-term stability needed to enhance credibility
and improve the business environment. Conducted in a spirit of openness,
this meeting will bring together global and regional leaders from business,
government and civil society to share strategic insights on how to navigate the
present and contribute to shaping Latin America’s inclusive future.
