The exponential acceleration of digital transformation presents both a challenge and an opportunity for governments and businesses in the Latin America and the Caribbean region to come together in order to improve the lives of their citizens and the competitiveness of their economies. The IDB will leverage its known network of innovative digital entrepreneurs built through six previous editions of the Outsource2LAC Forum and the ConnectAmericas business community to create the first "Made in the Americas Digital Services Summit (MITA GDS) 2019" - a space that allows governments, businesses and organizations from the region to learn about the latest digital technologies, gain access to experts, vendors, and start-ups, as well as to enable business transactions by organizing B2B and B2G matchmaking meetings. The IDB has partnered with major industry leaders and other organizations to design a truly unique experience for participants.

Over the last two decades the global export of services has accelerated, even experimenting a greater growth tan goods’ exports. New information technologies and the growing international de-localization of production has led service trade, and especially outsourced professional and business services, to achieve an unprecedented growth.
During the Summit, we will discuss best practices and the most relevant aspects that businesses bear in mind to export their services, as well as the alternatives that they find in the Latin American and Caribbean market (benefits and risks), and the recent adoption of models in the offshoring of international services.
The objetive of the Summit is to offer an opportunity to participants to discuss exchange the latest tendencies in the global services sector so that they can identify business and investment opportunities for Small and Medium Enterprises in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). We expect over 800 companies from LAC to participate.
