Digital transformation in the emerging and developed american markets

 

The region is of great interest to private and public sector players as the growth potential and influx of new technologies disrupts established practices and provides policy challenges for regulators.  As before, we provided simultaneous translation (English and Spanish) to ensure maximum value and involvement from the floor. We heard contributions from Ecuador, Paraguay, St Lucia, Bahamas, Costa Rica and Nicaragua alongside Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Jamaica and Peru.
