The presentation of the Inter-American Development Bank's 2017 Latin American and Caribbean Macroeconomic Report:

Canning House and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) invite you to the London launch of Routes to Growth in a New Trade World the IDB’s 2017 Latin American and Caribbean Macroeconomic Report. This report analyses recent developments in the global economy and how Latin American and the Caribbean countries are adapting to external conditions. While US stimulus may boost global demand, rising global trade frictions and higher interest rates could have serious impacts on the open economies of the region. The report argues that significant progress has been made in fiscal and external adjustment and that if the world becomes more protectionist, LAC should respond by integrating more within the region. LAC is not too far away from being a Free Trade Area but, given the current over-complex architecture, it does not reap the full benefits. A concrete and realistic action plan to deepen integration and boost growth is provided. The report will be available at www.iadb.org/macroreport

The report will be presented by Andrew Powell, Principal Advisor in the Research Department at the IDB.

Discussants:  Professor Meredith Crowley, Cambridge University, and David Lubin, Head, Emerging Markets Economics, Citibank.

17:00-17.25 - Presentation by Andrew Powell

17:25-18.00 - Discussion from Meredith Crowley and David Lubin
