The International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), and other leading institutions have cut their 2019 growth projections for Latin America. A slowing global economy, political uncertainty in the region’s largest economies, and ongoing corruption have all played into the disappointing growth forecasts.
Council of the Americas will hold a meeting with a panel of experts, who will assess the primary reasons for Latin America’s sluggish growth in 2019 and consider opportunities to boost 2020 growth.
