The Paraguayan president, Mario Abdo Benítez, and the delegation that accompanies him in his participation in the World Economic Forum held in the Swiss town of Davos, aspire to attract investments for the South American country, with "emphasis" on its "sustained" economic growth and "solid".
The Paraguayan Presidency reported today that the agenda of the Paraguayan delegation, consisting of the Foreign and Finance heads, Luis Alberto Castiglioni and Benigno López, respectively, and the First Lady Silvana López, will also focus on their commitment to increase "integration "of Mercosur.
In that sense, he indicated that his bet is for the "renewal and strengthening" of the bloc - formed by Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay - with a view to reaching "new trade agreements" with other economic blocs.
The president, who will intervene on Tuesday in the conversation "A new day in Latin America," along with other leaders of the region, such as the Colombian Ivan Duque, will address his intention to diversify Paraguayan industrial production, through the incentive to SMEs and support for entrepreneurs.
In addition, Abdo Benítez will meet with his Ecuadorian counterpart, Lenin Moreno and Estonian Prime Minister Jüri Ratas, and will meet with representatives of companies such as Coca-Cola and Microsoft, as reported this week by the head of the Management Unit of the Government, Hugo Cáceres.
The referential theme of the conclave in 2019 will be Globalization 4.0: "Forming the global architecture in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution", an edition that will be marked by the absence of important political leaders such as the presidents of the United States, Russia and China, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jingping, respectively.
