3 MIN READFebruary 12, 2019
On May 16 and 17, GRI Club Infra will host the fourth edition of Infra Latin America GRI, at The Roosevelt Hotel, in New York. During two intense days of activities, more than 250 government representatives and executives working in the infrastructure sector in several Latin American countries - such as Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Mexico, and Chile - will be gathered in an informal and prime networking environment. In addition to the interactive atmosphere, participants will focus on discussing key trends and major infrastructure challenges in the region.

“There will be hundreds of international and local players, among whom high-level executives and government representatives, in a prime space aimed at strengthening relations and that encourages the development of business, projects and partnerships. In the face of so many recent changes in the political and economic scenario in Latin America, we are in a strategic moment to address the future of this industry in the region,” says Pedro Nicolau, global head of Infrastructure at GRI Club.

More than ten discussion rooms are scheduled to take place throughout the event to address strategic, country-specific topics and issues related to the region as a whole. The backdrop will be the post-election landscape and policy changes implemented by new federal administrations in key countries. On the agenda is power transmission and generation, sanitation, highways, railways, mobility, and new technologies, among other subjects.
