The 10th Sustainable Mobility Summit hosted by Latam Mobility is coming up, where leading members from the public sector of different Latin American countries will meet on October 8th and 9th to discuss priority measures to be implemented immediately to minimize the carbon footprint across different transportation modes.
The first day of the three day virtual Summit will be dedicated to South American nations that have made progress over the last few months in terms of laws and incentives for promoting sustainable mobility, including Argentina, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.
The Minister of Transportation and Public Works of Ecuador, Marcelo Cabrera, will welcome the participants and offer a brief overview on the efforts made by his office to promote a cleaner mobility.
Discussions will initiate with the panel entitled “Sustainable mobility as an Ally for the Economy Decarbonization of South American Countries”, with the leading participation of the Subsecretary of Transportation from Chile, José Luis Domínguez, alongside the Subsecretary of Industry, Energy and Mining from Uruguay, Walter Verri.
