Latin America is an increasingly critical player in global commerce. But inadequate infrastructure remains a very real barrier to unlocking countries' trade potential. Bright signs exist: Panama will inaugurate its expanded canal in June and the Port of Cartagena uses first-class procedures for efficiency. Still greater private-sector participation is lacking and opportunities abound for building greater public-private partnerships.
What should be the next generation of physical improvements? How can constraints in moving products be overcome? Join us for this timely roundtable discussion to launch our infrastructure work.
A light lunch will be served.
