Since yesterday, more than 400 personalities, including heads of states and representatives from the private sector, academia and civil society, are gathered in the Peruvian capital, Lima, to participate in the 2013 World Economic Forum (WEF) Latin America. They will discuss about challenges and opportunities around the topic of “delivering growth and strengthening societies”. Latin America has registered constant rates of economic growth in recent years. However, there are big challenges ahead in terms of inequality and exclusion, and especially insecurity.
The program of the event is organised around the following three pillars:
1) Modernizing economies for growth.
2) Strengthening society through innovation.
3) Building resilience for sustainable development.
