part of SEDCâ€™s new alliance with AmCham Canada, our members are invited to
attend the Business Future of the Americas conference in Panama
City, Panama, at the AmCham rate. All programming will center around the
conference theme of "Unlocking Sustainable Growth in the Americas: Governance,
Equity, Energy, and Education."
- ABOUT THE CONFERENCE: The American
Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Panama, as a member of the Association
of American Chambers of Commerce in Latin America and the Caribbean (AACCLA),
will host the "Business Future of the Americas" conference on July 15 - 16, 2014.
- OBJECTIVE OF THE CONFERENCE: To bring
together top AmCham leaders and business leaders of the region to hear
world-class speakers and panelists talk about sustainability and participate
in business networking under the umbrella of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

those attendees interested in staying an additional day (June 17), there
