Aguirre too. The resources of Latin America are attracting a lot of innovators in
natural laboratories such as Chile’s desert. Latin America has abundance in
resources that can used in different innovation sectors, but one obstacle is the
absence of innovation in this region. I think that it is one point that should be

Mexico, Brazil and others. Latin America is showing the importance of natural
resources and its use in bioenergy production.
