The world’s two largest economies, the United States and China, are rapidly recovering from the economic debacle that Covid-19 has brought. However, both powers maintain their diplomatic and commercial confrontation, with the struggle for technological leadership as a backdrop. On the other hand, under the presidency of Joe BidenThe United States must define how it wants to manage its relations with the European Union, which, in turn, seeks a way to strengthen its position and influence on the geopolitical board.
The second roundtable will analyze the relations between Spain and Latin America that have been, are and will be one of the key points on its international agenda. The speakers will reflect on the path that Ibero-American cooperation policies should follow in a complicated political context for many countries in the region. The Latin American economy has suffered its worst contraction in two hundred years, which has resulted in a substantial increase in the poverty rate that has fueled the discontent of many citizens.
On Tuesday night an institutional dinner will be held; And on Wednesday the 9th, in the morning, the second day of the Forum will begin with the analysis of the transversal role that digitization and sustainability are going to play in the economic recovery and the way in which both factors are revolutionizing the business environment.

The speakers will analyze the current situation of the industry and its recovery forecasts; They will also reflect on what travel will be like in the future.
