Sustainable investment will focus Conferences of Latin American Cities
For the first time, the Dominican Republic is hosting the Conference Series of Latin American Cities, which will focus on sustainable investment. The event, organized by the Americas Society/Council of the Americas (AS/COA) in collaboration with the Vice Presidency of the Caribbean country, will bring together members of the Dominican Government and executives from the private sector to discuss investment, trade, energy, and technology.
Under the motto “Creating a new vision of sustainable investment,” the conference will feature three panels. The first panel will focus on “Facilitating sustainable investment in strategic sectors,” with a special focus on the industrial, energy, and service fields. The Dominican Minister of Industry, Commerce, and Mipymes, Víctor Bisonó, will participate in this discussion.
The second panel, “Diversifying industries, creating opportunities for development and promoting a climate for innovation,” will explore how to create an attractive climate for innovative companies to take advantage of opportunities derived from “nearshoring” and the Dominican Republic’s position as a logistics center in the region.
The final panel, “Public-private collaboration for innovative opportunities that promote sustainable development,” will discuss the joint effort needed to promote investment and empower the operational framework for economic growth, infrastructure, digital transformation, transportation, medical devices, and financing of projects, among other points.
The AS/COA has previously visited cities such as Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Lima, Medellín, Mexico City, Monterrey, and Panama City. This year, in addition to Santo Domingo, the conference will be held in Mexico City, Brasilia, Santiago de Chile, Bogotá, and Buenos Aires.
The Dominican President, Luis Abinader; the Vice President, Raquel Peña; and the head and CEO of the Council of the Americas, Susan Segal, will participate in the event. With a focus on sustainable investment, the Conference Series of Latin American Cities aims to promote economic growth, infrastructure, and innovation across the region.
