Ongoing technological advances throughout the region are laying the foundation for a smarter and more efficient public and private sector. But will corporations, regulators, and politicians be able to keep up with the rapid growth of intelligent technology? How will innovative developments in robotics, cloud computing, and big data affect governments, businesses, and people in Latin America?

A panel of experts will discuss the question “Is Latin America ready for the technology revolution?” and look specifically at the role of technology in areas of financial services, digital technologies, and manufacturing and logistics—both in Mexico, and throughout the region.
