Summit of the Americas, Panama 2015By Fernanda Duque Hernández
Prosperity with Equity: The Challenge of Cooperation in the Americas.
From April 10th to 11th Panama will host 35 heads of governments across the Americas that will gather to discuss common policy issues, share values and commit to face challenges and inequality in education, health, the development of clean energies, democracy and migration.
This year’s 7th Summit of the Americas will take place under the title Prosperity with Equity: The Challenge of Cooperation in the Americas. The real spotlight, however, will be on Cuba’s first participation in the summit since 1994, as well as the face-to-face encounter between Presidents Barack Obama (United States), Raul Castro (Cuba) and Nicolas Maduro (Venezuela).
According to President Enrique Peña Nieto, Mexico’s participation at this international encounter represents an opportunity to share the experience of legal reforms in Mexico with other nations.
The presidential agenda for this summit includes the president’s participation in a roundtable discussion with leaders Dilma Rousseff (Brazil), Barack Obama (U.S.) and Juan Carlos Vera (Panama), on the economic and social development of the region.
Also invited are the CEOs of the most important companies of the continent, with the aim of fostering future alliances between the private and public sector to work together for the benefit of communities across the Americas.
