Overview

As nations of the Western Hemisphere continue to grapple with the pandemic, economic uncertainty, and potential political shifts, successful business strategies for 2021 require a nuanced understanding of the issues driving the regional economy. What will it take for Latin America and the Caribbean to recover quickly and emerge stronger from the pandemic than they were before?

For insight into these issues, AS/COA will hold a discussion with leading expert and policy practitioner, Carlos Felipe Jaramillo of the World Bank.

Jaramillo oversees the World Bank’s relationship with 31 countries and a $32 billion portfolio of ongoing projects, technical assistance, and grants. Operations in the region focus on fueling growth, reducing poverty, supporting equality, and protecting the environment.

Prior to his current role, Jaramillo was the senior director of the Macroeconomics, Trade, and Investment Global Practice (MTI), where he led a global team of more than 450 economists. Since joining the World Bank in 2002, he has also served two terms as country director in the Latin America and Caribbean Region. He has also worked for Colombian ministries of Finance and Trade, as well as the Central Bank.
