IMF's Alejandro Werner on Latin America's 2020 Economic Outlook
The director of the IMF's Western Hemisphere Department returns to AS/COA to discuss prospects for growth amid uncertain times.
AS/COA will host a discussion on Latin America's 2020 economic outlook with Alejandro Werner, director of the Western Hemisphere Department at the International Monetary Fund.
As growth in the region slowed from 1.0 percent in 2018 to 0.2 percent in 2019, economic policies and political turmoil in some large LAC countries continue to be a drag on growth. Moreover, external factors remain a headwind to economic prospects in the region, led by volatile capital flows and further falls in global growth and commodity prices. Given the challenging global environment, policies across LAC region will need to strike a balance between supporting growth and rebuilding policy space.
Werner will discuss the prospects for economic growth in the hemisphere in this climate.
