With presidential elections in many Latin American countries and external factors such as higher interest rates, volatile exchange rates, and the new relationship between the United States and Latin America, the forecast for 2018 remains uncertain. Werner discussed the challenges and opportunities for economic growth in the hemisphere in this atmosphere.
