The meeting will debate the Latin American political and economic situation and the integration between countries; the region’s financing and investment capacity; and the challenges faced by multilateral development banks.

Fundação Getulio Vargas will host the seminar titled “Collective Challenges – The Future of Latin America” in honor of Bolivian economist Enrique García, president of the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF), at 2:30 PM on March 21. Ahead of CAF for 25 years, the executive is preparing to retire in April. The meeting will debate the Latin American political and economic situation and the integration between countries; the region’s financing and investment capacity; and the challenges faced by multilateral development banks.

The event will be held at FGV in Sao Paulo, gathering authorities and scholars, such as FGV’s president, professor Carlos Ivan Simonsen Leal, governors, mayors and distinguished businesspeople. The seminar will end with a closing lecture by Enrique García.

FGV and the development bank have a long-standing history of partnerships in research, knowledge production and scholarships, which prompted the seminar held in honor of Enrique García. Event registration is free of charge. Participants must register via the website.
