“Latin America Ambition” business forum (31 May to 3 June 2021)


For the eighth Latin America and Caribbean Week, Business France is organizing a France-Latin America business forum entitled “Latin America Ambition”, under the auspices of the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of the Economy, Finance and the Recovery.

This unprecedented forum aims to strengthen economic and commercial ties between France and Latin America, enabling French companies to find out about opportunities in key economic sectors for the region and hold many targeted meetings with Latin American businesses.

In a purely digital format because of the public health situation, the first Latin America Ambition business forum will be organized in three stages:

  1. 31 May-1 June: opening of the forum at ministerial level, then sectoral and thematic round tables during a plenary session, involving high-level French and Latin American figures and businesses with ambitious, innovative projects;
  2. 2 and 3 June: targeted business meetings to foster tangible partnerships between French and Latin American companies;
  3. 2 June (afternoon): an Invest segment for Latin American investors interested in France.

This business forum aims to bring together almost 450 participants in total and enable more than 600 B2B meetings.
