The 2nd day will focus on the Free Trade Agreements of the European Union with respectively Mercosur and Mexico. In following specific interactive discussion rounds contents will vary from digitization and new ways of working and cooperating to business risk management in uncertain times - not forgetting the food industry and its international value chains.

We can't disregard the current global pandemic situation. For this very reason, we welcome you to the first virtual Latin America Day!
