This event coincides with the launch of the recent IDB 2015 Latin American and Caribbean Macroeconomic Report which argues that the region is in the midst of a labyrinth and must navigate several global and domestic obstacles -including lower commodity prices and new types of financial risks- to ensure strong and sustainable growth.

At the event each country to fashion its own specific response based on its particular circumstances and further enhance productivity to attain higher, long-term growth.

At the event we will be focusing in particular on the following areas:

- How to improve social indicators and productivity with limited fiscal resources
