The countries of the LAC region face a permanently widening technological and industrial gap because they have so far been unable to develop a competitive renewable energy technology industry.
Participants discussed the policies and measures that need to be introduced to make sure the region does not turn into primarily a consumer of technologies and follower of industrial trends, which would lead to the loss of numerous jobs and lucrative business opportunities.
