Day 2 - Better Policies

Development policies vary from one country and / or region to another, depending on the conditions and circumstances of the territory in which they are intended to be applied, resulting in an unimaginable variety of practices with both successful and unsuccessful results.

Given the participation of international experts in the conference, the implementation cases of different policies of productive development (modern industrial policy) in the world, as well as the efforts required for their realization and the results obtained can be explored; aiming at finding those elements that promote processes of collaboration and complementarity between countries and regions.
