Minister of Economy, Bruno Ferrari, expressed his confidence in the capacity of Latin American countries to come out stronger from this forum, which started on Tuesday 17.


Before more than 900 attendants to the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Latin America, Minister of Economy, Bruno Ferrari, expressed his confidence in the capacity of Latin American countries to come out stronger and with a clearer panorama to drive a better integration in the region. The agenda includes extending trade, driving competitiveness, supporting economic growth, and striving for higher welfare levels.
Joined by the Governor of Jalisco, Emilio González Márquez, Ferrari said that this forum will provide the opportunity to set common objectives and work on the definition of shared solutions to the great challenges faced by the region.
At the sea walk of Puerto Vallarta, where the reception to the World Economic Forum took place, Ferrari declared that a series of major concerns for the world development, particularly Latin America, will be discussed, such as sustainability, the health of current financial systems, and the required measures to achieve higher welfare levels.
The discussions will focus on three subjects: collaboration to improve the response to economic downturn while keeping a growing pace of development; looking for a better capacity to deal with infrastructure, crime and institutional issues; and the required measures to drive green investment, employment and sustainable growth.
“I’m sure that in these days we will make further steps in our working agenda by defining concrete actions to address the challenges we face as a nation and as part of the Latin American region”, he said.
