“The proposals that the business community has brought to the Americas Business Dialogue are very opportune. The excellent recommendations of the Americas Business Dialogue’s Working Groups –on strategic topics such as energy, logistics and connectivity are a concrete contribution to the collective efforts to enhance our productivity.
