Critical Materials: Centering the Western Hemisphere in Global Supply Chains
A keynote interview with Jose W. Fernandez and a panel explored how the region can attract the highest quality investments in global energy transition.
With abundant natural resources, the Western Hemisphere must be fully integrated into global supply chains if energy transition is to succeed. Sustained private sector investment is crucial to turn potential into reality. It is not without challenges. However, with expertise and financing, the private sector has the tools, along with effective government policies, to support the full integration of the region's resources into global critical materials supply chains.
How do we get there? Join us virtually on Thursday, July 20 from 10:00 to 11:15 am ET as our speakers present perspectives on what governments and other stakeholders can do to attract the highest quality investments as the region seeks to amplify its position on these important issues.
