WASHINGTON, DC, April 25, 2013Arturo Valenzuela, Covington & Burling’s senior advisor for Latin America and former assistant secretary of state for western hemisphere affairs, was a featured speaker at the 2013 World Economic Forum held in Lima from April 23 to 25.

Mr. Valenzuela focused on the recent economic, geopolitical and leadership transitions that are expected to shape Latin America's future. The panel of speakers included Ricardo Hausmann, director of Harvard Kennedy School’s Center for International Development, and Hernando de Soto, president of Instituto Libertad y Democracia in Peru. The session was moderated by Rossana Fuentes-Berain, vice-president of expansion in Mexico.

“It's an honor for me to be one of the speakers at the World Economic Forum on Latin America. The presence of three Latin American presidents, host Ollanta Humala, Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto, and Panamanian president Ricardo Martinelli, underscores the importance of this gathering of top business leaders in one of the most dynamic and promising regions of the world,” Mr. Valenzuela said.
