2016 Latin American Colloquium

The University of Queensland hosted the 10th Annual Latin American Colloquium on Wednesday 5, October 2016.

With an overarching theme of 'A decade of collaboration and innovation: Celebrating Australian and Latin American partnerships', the event sought to encourage broader discussion on the role and impact of Australian and Latin American relations and advances over the last ten years.

Proudly supported by Latin American diplomatic representatives, the Colloquium reflected on how the dialogue between Australia and Latin America has shifted and looked to the future of the relationship through a high-level keynote, panel discussions and Q&A. Discussions focused on the sub-themes of education, industry and government, considering Latin American and Australian experiences of innovation in each of these sectors and how business, cultural and educational exchange has enhanced outcomes.
