The current infrastructure gap in Latin America offers an excellent opportunity to make a qualitative leap, which is why CAF-development bank of Latin America- has invited more than fifty world leaders and over 500 other participants to exchange experiences, learn about good practices and discuss the main challenges facing the task of providing infrastructure in an environment with improved prospects for economic growth in the region.   

The Conference on Infrastructure for the Development of Latin America, to be held at the Hotel Alvear Icon in Buenos Aires, Argentina on April 25 and 26 will feature keynote speeches, panels and direct exchanges, with emphasis on how to increase the quantity and quality of investments; how to adapt regulations to the incorporation of new technologies; how to meet the sustainable development and climate change agenda; and how to improve universal access to goods and services supply centers.

In addition to Luis Carranza, Executive President of CAF, featured speakers will include Marcos Peña, Chairman of the Cabinet of Ministers for Argentina; Guillermo Dietrich, Minister of Transport in Argentina; Rogelio Frigerio, Minister of the Interior, Public Works and Housing in Argentina; Victor Rossi, Minister of Transport and Public Works in Uruguay; Federico Gutierrez, the Mayor of Medellin; Robin Chase, the co-founder of ZipCar; Young Tae Kim, Secretary General of the International Transport Forum of the OECD, and Antonio H. Pinheiro Silveira, Vice President of Infrastructure of CAF,just to name a few.

In Latin America, eight of every ten people live in urban areas, and between 20% and 30% of the population lives in informal settlements, with limited access to basic utilities, such as water or electricity. Urban infrastructure has been established as a link between quality of life and increased productivity, so it is crucial to reduce social exclusion, improve planning and resilience and increase the availability and quality of public utilities. This will be one of the central themes that will be addressed during the Conference on Infrastructure for the Development of Latin America, which you may attend free of charge by just registering here.
