Millicom CEO Mauricio Ramos highlights digital priorities at AACCLA Outlook on the Americas 2021 conference
Luxembourg, February 25, 2021 - MillicomCEO Mauricio Ramos took the stage this Thursday, February 25, 2021, as a keynote speaker at the Association of American Chambers of Commerce in Latin America and the Caribbeanconference, in partnership with the United States Chamber of Commerce.
As the AACCLA's first major hemispheric business event of 2021, the virtual conference highlighted the current and post-COVID-19 digital priorities across Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the need for a robust and flexible regulatory framework to re-launch the sector and economy.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has proven that now, more than ever, digital connectivity should be at the core of all priorities - from healthcare, to education, government services, and far beyond," said Millicom CEO Mauricio Ramos. "This will not change any time soon. But in order for this to become a reality, there is a need for a modern, flexible, and widely accepted regulatory framework for telecommunications, which can give the industry the necessary space to act as a fundamental engine when contributing to the reactivation of economies."
Ramos' participation in the AACCLA Outlook on the Americas conference came at a pivotal time, as he was recently elected Chair of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce U.S.-Colombia Business Council (USCBC), which works to strengthen the economic and commercial relationship between the United States and Latin America. Ramos also serves as the Chair of the World Economic Forum Digital Communications Industry.
As it fulfills its purpose of building the digital highways that connect people, improve lives, and develop communities, Millicom works toward a full adoption of 4G networks across Latin America, paving the way for future 5G evolution.
