Govt & business leaders to attend IDB Annual Meeting

Mar '08
Finance ministers, business leaders, civil society representatives and top artists from Latin America and the Caribbean will participate in the annual meeting of the Inter-American Development Bank, which this year is taking place in Miami, Florida, April 4–8.

The IDB is the world's largest regional development bank and the leading source of multilateral financing for Latin America and the Caribbean. In 2007 the IDB Group approved new operations totaling more than $9.6 billion.

Miami, a vibrant link between the United States and its neighbors, will become the premier forum on Latin America and the Caribbean, as the IDB will bring together thousands of participants for five days of discussions on some of the region's most pressing economic and social issues.

This year's program will include a seminar on partnerships for development, focusing on the increasingly influential role played by individual and corporate donors in promoting innovative ways to combat poverty. This event, on Friday, April 4, will feature a dialogue between Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates and IDB President Luis Alberto Moreno.

Other annual meeting seminars will cover topics such as the macroeconomic outlook for Latin America and the Caribbean, the region's infrastructure needs, the expansion of microfinance, mobile banking, business models that benefit the poor, green energy scenarios, the impact of climate change, natural disaster prevention, and artists and youth as agents of change.
