Government Leaders Forum
The Government Leaders Forum - Latin America and The Caribbean, hosted by Microsoft, is an exceptional opportunity to bring together government leaders and other influential thinkers to discuss experiences and exchange ideas on the opportunities that Information Technology enables in the region.
The Forum will focus on the theme "Driving Impact Today for a Brighter Future" with a special concentration on areas of interest to policymakers and government elites across the region, including topics such as National Competitiveness, Social Development, Economic Growth and Education.
Participants at the Forum will explore how information technologies can be leveraged to aggressively drive progress in the various focus areas, as well as discuss the public policy implications of the evolving technology environment of today.
The core themes of this year's Forum will be addressed through interactive panel discussions, practical case studies, best practices, and presentations by visionary keynote speakers. The Forum will be distinguished by an exceptional caliber of presenters and provides an unparalleled and highly valued opportunity for peer networking and ad hoc discussion groups.
At the Government Leaders Forum in 2012, a historic conversation occurred between President Sebastián Piñera of Chile and President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia. Using a virtual presence, the presidents were able to discuss their ICT nation strategy with the audience in Washington, DC while being located in their home countries.
In years past we have been accompanied by the former United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, President of Mexico Felipe Calderón, President of Brazil Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva, President of Colombia Álvaro Uribe, President of Panama Ricardo Martinelli and President of the United States Bill Clinton.
