26 January 2009
The OECD Development Centre, the French Ministry of Finance, the Inter-American Development Bank and UBIFRANCE are organising the International Economic Forum on Latin America and the Caribbean 2009. This high-level event will bring together a selective group of ministers, central bankers, economist and representatives from the public and private sectors to discuss key economic issues for Latin America. Participation is free of charge and open to all individuals, organisations and companies interested. Since space is limited, we encourage you to register online.
The Forum will last a full day and will be structured around five sessions addressing the following issues:
Sessions 1-4 will be plenaries where the topic will be introduced by a speaker and a selective group of discussants will offer their comments. An initial roundtable discussion will take place, led by a moderator, and the final 10-15 minutes will be opened to questions from the audience. Session 5 will be split into 4 panels around a specific sector each: (i) transportation; (ii) environment; (iii) fair trade and sustainable tourism; and (iv) infrastructure and water sanitation. Each panel will be moderated by an expert on foreign trade and is particularly targeted to companies and firms operating in each area of activity.
