We have to become Match Makers, promoting programs and projects, to generate these powerful strategic alliances.
Ibero-America is a cultural power of great creativity, capable of feeding the new platforms that have increased the production of series and movies. For this reason, the businessman Felipe Vicini, president of Inicia, where he said that before his arrival in the audiovisual industry, it was very informal and empirical: “I started with small documentaries and videos“.
The audiovisual cultural industry becomes not only a pole of socioeconomic development but also a great opportunity to increase the “soft power” of the Ibero-American and the Spanish language in the world.
With regard to the infrastructure of Ibero-America, Andrés Arizkorreta, Diego de la Torre and Carlos Vargas spoke, who mentioned that the Latin American region is the one with the largest population in the world in cities, which generates great challenges. For this reason, the role played by public-private partnerships to finance and design viable infrastructure projects is essential.
The post-pandemic showed how important both traditional and digital infrastructures are

1. Promote greater cooperation and integration at the regional level.

In the following discussion table, Jaume Miquel, president of TENDAM, participated, commenting that “the key to achieving sustainability is reading the future and redefining your assets“.
He also highlighted that: “COVID gave us an opportunity, it forced us to take an external social attitude that the company would never have considered. I don’t know if the companies are ready, but we have to generate sustainable profitability and contribute to a fairer social capitalism”.
Undertaking and innovating is part of the present and future, for this reason in the following debate it was explained how Ibero-America cannot miss the train of the IV Industrial Revolution, which requires a determined commitment from the public and private spheres to stimulate innovation and the use of new technologies.
