ANNUAL CAF CONFERENCE



ABOUT

Every September, the CAF development bank of Latin America, the Inter-American Dialogue, and the Organization of American States  sponsor a conference for Washington officials and opinion leaders on hemispheric affairs. Over two days of discussions, over 400 US and Latin American government officials; international economists; lawmakers, leading policy analysts, and journalists; and corporate and financial leaders, engage in deep discussions on a wide range of salient issues. The aim of this sustained collaboration is to demonstrate the importance of global economic and political relations with Latin America, and to provide a detailed review of hemispheric economic affairs. 



XVII ANNUAL CAF CONFERENCE

The failure to narrow the inequality gap in Latin America, a need for effective economic integration, and the importance of investment in infrastructure and education were among the issues spotlighted during the XVII Annual CAF Conference, the largest and most successful CAF Conference yet. Immigration, drug trafficking, social unrest, election cycles, and innovation were also addressed during panel discussions at the September 4-5 gathering, which, with more than 1,000 participants, set an attendance record. View pictures from the conference, watch video recordings, and read an event summary on our XVII CAF Conference page. MORE
