Latin Trade Symposium

The annual Latin Trade Symposium begins with the private CEO Roundtable that brings together the presidents of some of the most important Latin American companies. The Symposium has become the venue par excellence through which to view regional problems and opportunities through the eyes of business and government leaders. This year the Roundtable discussed the avenues that can lead to the achievement of fully sustainable enterprises.

The 2012 Latin Trade Symposium posed challenging issues for discussion on Building of the New Latin America. A first plenary panel addressed the question of how to become a winning multilatina in a new commercial landscape and in a highly competitive environment.

A second panel identified ways to leverage the impact of global power shifts on Latin American growth. They underlined the changes required in leadership and the acquisition of corporate knowledge in order to profit from the new trends. In a mid-day keynote address Felipe Larrain, Chile s Finance Minister, described the road that his country has followed in recent years to reach the goal of becoming Latin America's first developed nation. The conference program was finalized with a lunch session that explored the future of governance in the region. The speakers discussed how the new political landscape and new political forces are changing the ways of doing business.
