A project’s carbon footprint and financing sources, the honesty of the construction company’s executive management team, and how it relates to local communities and other stakeholders. For a company trying to secure financing or land contracts in Latin America, these factors currently weigh as much as recent earnings statements and project experience.

But are companies convinced of the added value in committing to the sustainable economic growth of the countries they operate in? And what are the crucial milestones of a long-term sustainable growth plan?

BNamericas, which for the past 20 years has been providing the needed information and insight to do business in Latin America, is bringing together executives and officials from the private and public sectors, as well as multilateral organizations and entrepreneurs, for a two-day intense debate and brainstorming session to map Latin America’s sustainable growth path.

The event will take place in Miami, FL on September 15-16, and is supported by the Inter-American Development Bank and Endeavor Strategic Partner, which will provide their experience in creating a discussion and networking spaces to tackle the region’s next steps on the road to sustainable development.

The panels will also look at the mindset of the shared-economy entrepreneurs, while also highlighting the efficient management techniques of traditional mega-projects and deciding whether the time has finally come for greater public sector participation in government development programs.

“It’s necessary for the private sector and governments to learn how to work together, with the right dose of regulation, in order to bring private initiative in line with the public sector’s goals. That way the region will no longer be left behind in the wild global race for competitiveness,” says BNamericas CEO and lifelong entrepreneur Greg Barton.

The agenda will include discussions about the ‘new global economic normal;’ innovation as an essential factor for sustainable growth; the revolutionary transformation taking place in cities, and the need to reshape the education agenda. LatAm Leaders Forum will provide a unique opportunity to share success stories and recommend best practices in order to produce a road map for sustainable growth.

The main commercial sponsors of the event are SMBC, Siemens and Generac. Other supporting partners include AACLA, Beacon Council of Miami, Canning House, Connect Americas, eMerge, Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, IAD, ICEX and MexCham (Beijing).
