–– With persistent challenges to the health and prosperity of the people in Latin America, the region's political and business leaders are compelled to act.

- 2022 election expectations in Brazil and Colombia.
- Rising inflation fears in several key nations.
- Improving the region's public health challenges amid new Covid variants.
- Deciphering Latin America's climate agenda in the wake of the COP26 climate summit.
Kicking-off the summit will be Ian Bremmer's much-anticipated "State of the World" speech, which airs live on www.gzeromedia.com on 6 December at 8 pm EST. Bremmer will discuss why China and the US are not headed for a new Cold War, and why America is turning its attentions further inward. He also plans to address why the world's biggest tech companies are challenging nations by establishing their own form of sovereignty.
