Riviera Maya Welcomes the World Economic Forum on Latin America 2015By Fernanda Duque Hernández
Mexico chosen based on economic leadership.
From May 6th to 8th, Mexico will be hosting the 10th edition of the World Economic Forum on Latin America 2015. Francisco González Díaz, CEO of the ProMéxico trust fund and Marisol Argueta, the World Economic Forum's Latin America CEO, have chosen the Riviera Maya as the ideal meeting point for this international economic encounter.
The World Economic Forum (WEF) is an international institution committed to improving the state of the world through public-private cooperation, according to its website. Aside from the annual summits in Davos, Switzerland, the WEF organizes different events throughout the year to develop economic solutions for different parts of the world.
For the Latin America edition, almost 750 entrepreneurs, governments, international organizations and academics have confirmed their participation. The WEF has chosen “Advancing through a Renovation Agenda” as this year's slogan. The event is considered by those attending to be essential for boosting investment in Latin America.
For its 10th anniversary, the forum will return to Mexico as the stability of its economy has made it the host of the forum on at least three occasions.
For the state of Quintana Roo, this will be the second time that it hosts this international forum. The first time was in Cancun in 2008 and now, in 2015, it will be the Riviera Maya.
