Latin American Business Forum
The 2015 University of Edinburgh Latin American Business Forum
After the success of the 2012 Forum, a newly elected committee decided to transform the Forum into a sustainable project with yearly editions. Accordingly, in April 2013 the second Forum was held with the aim to explore Latin America’s relationship with Europe. Through guest lectures and round-table talks, world-class speakers explored the business, political and social links.
They key objective of the Forum was to promote Latin America as a growing global player and as a land of opportunities for Europeans. The Forum also aimed to encourage Latin America as a potential area of research for students by introducing topical issues and initiating dialogue. Speakers included Michael Reid, the chief Americas editor for The Economist, Alexis Karklins-Marchay, partner and head of emerging markets centre at Ernst & Young and Domingo Cavallo, the Former Minister of Economy for Argentina.
