New York, USA, 7 February 2020 – Media accreditation for the 14th World Economic Forum on Latin America is now open. The meeting will take place in São Paulo, Brazil on 28-30 April, with the support of the Government of Brazil.
Under the theme Reforming for Growth and Inclusion, the meeting aims to shape the path of Latin America’s transition to prosperity, including crafting new approaches to regional governance and geopolitics; unleashing entrepreneurial activity to drive productivity and capitalize on human-centred technologies; and shaping new policies to promote more sustainable and inclusive growth.
More than 750 leaders from business, government, civil society and media will collaborate on these pressing issues and exercise their leadership to catalyse change in Latin America.
“The Latin American region stands at a critical moment,” said Marisol Argueta de Barillas, Head of the Regional Agenda, Latin America, and Member of the Executive Committee at the World Economic Forum. “The region, which has shown resilience in the past, now needs to take crucial measures to respond to a threatening global recession and to secure long-term sustainable growth. Among the greatest is the need to ensure that growth is inclusive and sustainable. We will also address the opportunities we can leverage from the emerging technologies in the era the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Navigating these factors will demand more productive economies, dynamic businesses and better-skilled labour for new jobs, so we are able to shape future-focused societies.”
The meeting will explore how the Fourth Industrial Revolution can support this transition and will focus on the following Forum platforms from Advance Manufacturing to Travel and Tourism.
Media accreditation is now open. If you would like to cover this event, please register online at www.weforummedia.org by Friday 27 March. The number of accreditations issued is strictly limited and late requests for registration will not be accepted. No accreditation will be granted on site.
