Representatives of the Inter-American Development Bank will be visiting Copenhagen, and we would like to use this opportunity to invite you for a seminar, where we take a closer look at recent experiences and draw up the contours of the coming years of socio-economic development in Latin America.
Latin American and the Caribbean countries require an ambitious growth agenda that focuses on overcoming large gaps in investment and productivity. At the same time, most of the countries are forming new governments that will face challenges remaining from the latest economic crisis.
Denmark has a valuable partnership with the IDB, which includes joint support to national development banks across the region to catalyze private sector investment in energy efficiency. IDB has recently cemented a partnership with Denmark’s Investment Fund for Developing Countries (IFU) to promote the financing of private sector projects in Latin America and the Caribbean. The partnership with IFU will actively identify opportunities for co-financing and co-investment in private sector projects. IDB Invest and IFU have already begun to develop a pipeline of projects in Colombia, and also plan to work together through knowledge, information, and best practice exchange efforts.
Visiting IDB representatives will give us insight in the socio-economic realities that form the basis of the IDB’s interventions and present some of the current development projects of the bank around the region. Professor Pablo Selaya from the University of Copenhagen will give his perspectives on the successes and failures of development efforts in Latin America, and the challenges and prospects that remain.
The event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
Please register for the seminar [email protected] no later than 15 June 2018.
Further inquiries can be directed to the Ministry on ph. 41 53 25 41.
