Experts to Ecuador to Analyze Importance of Technological Innovation

QUITO – International experts will gather in Ecuador to discuss the importance of technological innovation for countries’ development, Raul Arias, one of the speakers at the 4th International Congress on Knowledge and Innovation, told Efe on Sunday.

At the meeting, which will take place Nov. 13-14, will be experts from Spain, Ecuador, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Canada, Panama, Sweden, Peru and Mexico, among other countries, and they will discuss the challenges and implications of “knowledge flight,” as well as how innovation can sustain small and medium businesses “in turbulent times.”

At the gathering, which will be held in the southern city of Loja, participants will also discuss the challenges of knowledge engineering and management as well as social undertakings from the academic and financial point of view.

Arias said that countries who have managed to position themselves competitively in the international market have done so thanks to the fact that “they have enjoyed processes of innovation and the ability to apply them to new products,” a situation that has enabled them to “improve ... their competitive ability and income levels.”

Arias said that the United States, East Asia and certain European nations show a high level of technological development, while the Latin American and Caribbean regions are experiencing “backwardness” in that area.

He said that Brazil, Chile, some sectors in Mexico and Colombia have experienced a better level of technological innovation, while in Central America and the Caribbean it has been less.

Thirty-six exhibitors will participate in the meeting and some 500 people are expected to attend, Arias said.
