Convening under the theme “Opening Pathways for Shared Progress”, the World Economic Forum on Latin America, to take place on April 1-3 in Panama City, will bring together more than 600 leaders from government, industry, civil society, and academia from over 50 nations to discuss the challenges and opportunities facing the region.


It appears that Air France made the right decision in initiating direct flights to Panama.
