The Forum has the participation of over 400 leaders from business, government, private sector, media outlets, and civil society, as well as international and regional panelists, to discuss priority issues and promote Social Responsibility. For the first time since its inception, the 2020 Forum was held virtually and was open to all audiences.
From September 1 - 3, 2020, the interventions of the different Forum participants focused on the “Reinvention and resistance in times of crisis” . The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed many of the vulnerabilities and concerns of Central America based on the construction of alternative responses to the economic impact, gender approach, migration, and the role of companies to increase market access for all.
For the 4th consecutive year, AgroAmerica participated as a sponsor of the Forum, promoting the development of the Central American region and the implementation of good business, labor, social and environmental practices.
During 2019, the Forum's central theme was “Progress at the Crossroads”. More than 30 conferences, panels, and workshops were held in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, addressing Economic Development, Youth, Feminist Movements, Corruption, Migration, Human Rights, Democracy, Public-Private Partnerships, among others.
In 2018, the forum was held in San Salvador, El Salvador, developing the theme “Creating space for everyone”, highlighting the role of corporate social responsibility in building a more inclusive region through strategic alliances with social actors.
In 2017, AgroAmerica CEO, Fernando Bolaños, was a member of the host committee, as well as a panelist of the Forum that revolved around the theme “Reimagining Partnerships” held in Panama City.
Bolaños participated on the panel Social Responsibility: The Role of Influential People in the Construction of Democracy in Central America . “There are many challenges facing Central America,” said Bolaños during his intervention. “Our challenges are all connected and linked – food security, poverty, gender equality, health and education to name just a few. At AgroAmerica we strive to create a sustainable development initiative through partnerships, so we can improve the lives of our employees and the people in the surrounding communities.”
AgroAmerica will continue contributing to initiatives that promote a more inclusive region through its Corporate Sustainability Strategy and strategic alliances with social actors.
