Complete speech by Eduardo Eurnacian
Good evening ladies.
I am very honored and grateful to have been selected as the Gold Medalist of the American Society. A special thank you to my dear friend Susan, for her introduction.
I would like to congratulate the other award recipients tonight:
Pilar Arosemina from Aleman
President Evan Duke
Receiving the Gold Medal from the American Society motivates me to pursue the values I share with this outstanding organization: economic and social development, open markets, the rule of law and democracy across the Western Hemisphere.
Tonight, together in this room, we are united in the idea of who we are as a continent.
Today, exactly five hundred and twenty-nine years ago, Christopher Columbus introduced our continent (The second largest planet, 28% of the Earth’s surface) For other parts of the world, put it on the map. Today, the map of the American continent covers 35 countries.
Perhaps tonight we will have the opportunity to ask ourselves how each of those 35 American countries is effectively related to the other region.
In each of those countries, the questions to be asked are:
– Are minority voices heard?
– Are their interests taken into account, with agreements based on initiatives that they can also support?
More specifically, Columbus opened the door to the arrival of European civilization, and many of us are here today because this land welcomed immigrants from Europe, but – more and more – from many corners of the world.
These immigrants overcame strong differences and integrated into the host community, while at the same time creating a new culture.
“Man lives real human life because of culture”This is something we must constantly protect, and it should never be taken lightly.
But not only that: too We must consolidate our democracies and modernize our economies. In this sense, we have to thank companies that cross borders and individuals who make a difference in different fields.
But today democracy is threatened by waves of social discontent and popular ideology.
The tragic and repetitive conflicts of the last century show that both action and reaction are part of the evolutionary process of history.
It is this tension that often leads to growth and innovation and is also an expression of the freedom we enjoy.
In this context, the potential of countries acting in and out of global challenges is high:
– Climate change and the lowering of the oceans
– Diseases and Infections
– Massive human migration
– Threats to cyber security
– A new arms race
As we know, technology has recently taken its own life, for example through genetic engineering.
States are not the only ones affected by this evolution. There is a risk that any individual will control you and multiply potential threats.
Lack of this control can mean acceleration on the way to self-destruction.
