Ibargüen, Parellada and professor Joseph Keckeissen, participated in the XXXI APEE´s Convention in which they explored themes related to private enterprise, and was titled Private Solutions for Market Failures: Is Government Always the answer?
The days at the
APEE meeting have been maximum motivators, said Parellada, who observed that you breathe a libertarian air and those of us who were there came back very positive and with a lot of energy to keep spreading the philosophy of liberty.
Guatemala will be the host of the 2009 APEE reunion, a project that Joseph Keckeissen has promoted during the last 10 years in which he has assiste to the Annual Conventions of the Association.
