Partnering with SOUTHCOM

Responding to General John Kelly’s request for greater security focus and assistance on Latin America and the Caribbean, over twenty BENS members and guests joined his staff at U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) headquarters in Florida to cohost a two-day ‘Global Business Symposium’. The symposium featured member-led presentations on diverse topics ranging from anti-money laundering to global energy markets. The collaborative setting fostered a robust conversation on best business practices and the evolving economic environment in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.
