The former president of Chile will be the second guest of the cycle in which global leaders of politics, economics and thought participate. From 11 am live in the digital edition of Clarion and on Youtube.
On Wednesday, September 2, and within the framework of its 75th anniversary, Clarion presented “The world after the pandemic”, a cycle of conversations with global referents in politics, economics, thought and technology.
The first guest was the former president of Uruguay, Julio María Sanguinetti, while this Wednesday it will be Ricardo Lagos’ turn. The former president of Chile will participate in a virtual interview with Ricardo Kirschbaum, general editor of Clarion.
With the business support of Pan American Energy, Village and Techint, the cycle and its guests ensure a deep look at current affairs, in a world hit by the coronavirus pandemic, which poses a scenario of global crisis, beyond the specific nuances.
This Wednesday it will be the turn of Ricardo Lagos, former president of Chile, who like the rest of the guests will be interviewed by Ricardo Kirschbaum, general editor of Clarion. The talk live and open to the public will be broadcast virtually from 11 in the morning through the Clarín website, Zoom and YouTube and will be sponsored by Newsan and Crossfinder.
The former Chilean president will be followed by other key names in Latin American politics in recent years. On Wednesday 16 will be the former Brazilian president Fernando Henrique Cardoso and on September 23 the Spanish Felipe González.
The meetings, inevitably virtual in these days of pandemic, mark the continuity of the “Democracy and development” cycle, organized by Clarín over the last three years, which became an inescapable reference as beacons of reflection and thought on the problems and opportunities facing Argentina and the countries of the region today.
The institutional, economic and social challenges of our country and neighboring nations are approached with a plural and long-term perspective.
Last year, and in full electoral effervescence in Argentina, the then candidate and today President Alberto Fernández, former President Mauricio Macri, former Governor María Eugenia Vidal, passed through the stage of the MALBA (Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires). the former minister Roberto Lavagna, the then vice-presidential candidates Miguel Angel Pichetto and Juan Manuel Urtubey and the current president of the Chamber of Deputies, Sergio Massa.
Such political presences made each of the meetings the center of the pre-electoral energy of those days, attracting attention and allowing us to feel the present and imagine the future.
This year, and with the presence of personalities from different spaces of thought, the cycle will run until December. An unmissable digital appointment and space for reflection to understand this particular present and look hopeful at the future.
