How was the list made?
The selection was made by a team of editors and senior analysts who took into account what is happening in the region and the trends in investments, public policies and activities to improve economic conditions.
"In these times, the list reflects the diversity of Latin America, both in terms of people and their initiatives," highlights the editorial team of Bloomberg Línea.
Through an in-depth analysis of the most important initiatives carried out by businessmen, executives, investors, researchers, public servants, as well as public figures whose participation goes beyond their artistic or sports activities, the publication highlights those who have fulfilled these requirements in the region.
With 150,000 subscribers, Bloomberg Línea continues to become one of the most influential outlets in the region, completing more than 3 million visits per month and reaching more than 23 million people.
