SFS participates in prominent free market think tank events in the Southern Cone

SFS was delighted and honored to participate in prominent Latin America think tank events in Argentina and Chile this past April. 

Eight scholars and associates from the SFS network with regional expertise from their senior posts in the U.S., Colombian, Venezuelan and Bolivian governments, academia and think tanks participated in panels and discussions for the 25th anniversary of Argentina’s Fundacíon Libertad (Liberty Foundation) in Rosario and Buenos Aires the week of April 8th, and two participated in a forum at Chile’s Instituto Libertad (Liberty Institute) in Santiago the week of April 15th.

Over 2,000 free market opinion leaders from throughout the Western Hemisphere and Europe attended the Fundacíon Libertad anniversary events, to include former heads of state from Spain, Slovenia, Uruguay and Bolivia, dozens of current and former cabinet members, featuring keynote speeches from Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas Llosa of Peru and Jose Maria Aznar of Spain.
