Latin America: Leading the Road Ahead

COVID-19 has triggered severe health, economic, human, and political crisis throughout the world. Nations are doing their best to curb the spread of the virus with containment measures that have disrupted productive activities. Economies have been paralyzed, and citizens have been in more or less severe quarantines, causing a contraction in demand that is having negative repercussions in the world's GDP. International organizations warn that the coronavirus pandemic is causing a deep global recession and the outlook is uncertain.

In this new global scenario, it will be necessary to take urgent measures and redefine the region's economy. Latin America must lead the road ahead through international cooperation, high impact initiatives from both public and private sectors, policymaking, and collaboration from all sectors including academia and civil society.

Joint cooperation among nations has never been as important as today. In this context, the Latin America Leadership Program (LALP) and our Alumni Network have built a platform that aims to connect leaders in Latin America to share knowledge and impact our society. Our purpose is to influence decisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions. Facilitate knowledge and collaboration across countries in the region. Help Latin American economies to overcome socioeconomic, technological, and environmental challenges and achieve social welfare.

Through our LALP Alumni Webinar Series, "Latin America: Leading the Road Ahead," our goal is to strengthen international cooperation, promote the exchange of best practices and knowledge among countries to mitigate COVID-19, and support our almost 700 alumni within the whole Ibero-American region.
