Resilience, recovery and sustainability: Central America 2021
The Central American Bank for Economic Integration, in conjunction with OMFIF, is releasing the second edition of ‘Central America: Integration, investment and trade opportunities’. This year the report is focusing on resilience, recovery and sustainability, assessing the region’s competitive advantages as a promising destination for foreign investors and how financial markets can further development.
OMFIF and CABEI are organising an on-the-record virtual launch for the second edition of the report on Thursday 17 February 2022. This includes a presentation of findings and a panel discussion featuring policy-makers and practitioners from across the region and beyond. The panel will discuss the findings of the report and reflect on opportunities and challenges in financial market development. Key areas for attention are conditions for foreign investment as the world reopens, regional debt, prospects for regional integration and sustainable projects and growth, developments in digital sectors, infrastructure and how this will build the region’s resilience and further the recovery from Covid-19.
