The Inter-American Development Bank Group will hold its Annual Meeting in Asunción, Paraguay, on March 30-April 2. Economic and financial leaders from its 48 member countrieswill discuss key development, trade and investment challenges for Latin America and the Caribbean on issues ranging from private sector investments to global trade and political trends.
Representatives of other development agencies, commercial banks, companies and civil society organizations will also attend the gathering. The event will mark the 58th annual meeting of the IDB Group’s Board of Governors, the Bank’s top decision-making body. Most Governors are ministers of finance or the economy, or central bank presidents.
The IDB Group is made up of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), which provides resources and financing for public sector, the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC), which focuses on private sector operations, and the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF), which provides donations and resources to foster innovative small-scale projects in the region.
During the event the IDB Group will release its annual macroeconomic assessment of the region amidst a difficult global economic, political and trade environment. The findings of the macroeconomic report will be released during the Annual Meeting and panels will discuss fiscal, trade, investment and monetary challenges.
The IDB and the government of Paraguay will host the “Latin America and the Caribbean: An agenda of growth and development” Business Forum. The event will gather close to 500 private sector leaders and high-level government representatives from the Americas, who will discuss key issues to promote sustained economic growth rooted in rising productivity.
Panelists will discuss the opportunities and challenges for the region in areas including the promotion of food security and the growth of agribusiness, how to foster the development of qualified human capital and an environment that promotes innovation and the investment in infrastructure that the region requires to be a more competitive player in the global economy.
At the investment forum, the IIC’s CEO James P. Scriven will reflect on the IIC’s first year of operations since the IDB Group consolidated its private sector. He will focus on regional private sector trends and how the IIC is best positioned to tackle its clients’ evolving needs in key economic sectors such as renewable energy, transport, water and sanitation, agribusiness and telecommunications.
The Annual Meeting will feature the 8th edition of Demand Solutions event featuring big and original thinkers and entrepreneurs. Demand Solutions is designed to inspire creativity and innovation and will highlight the role of women as an engine of innovation and transformation in the past, present and future of Latin America and the Caribbean. Those wishing to attend the event should request an invitation at [email protected].
Estimados miembros de la Asociación,
Adjunto encontrarán un mensaje del Presidente de la Filial de Chile, Alvaro Beca, solicitando nuestro apoyo para ayudar a unas instituciones dedicadas a apoyar a familias perjudicadas por los incendios que flagelan ese país. La consideramos una causa totalmente justa, tanto que la Asociación está contribuyendo $1,000 a la misma y, por este medio, les solicitamos que también contribuyan, según lo indicado por Alvaro, antes del 6 de febrero (ver más abajo).
Aprovechamos para informarles que, en estos esfuerzos, estamos colaborando con la administración del Banco y la Cooperativa de Credito. En este último caso, la Cooperativa también está considerando efectuar algún aporte a dichas instituciones, sobre lo cual informará en breve a sus socios.
Ante la grave tragedia que se está viviendo en varias localidades de Chile, afectando incluso pequeños poblados como el de Santa Olga, cerca de Talca que se ilustra en la foto, la directiva de la Filial Chile de Jubilados del BID ha iniciado una campaña de recolección de fondos.
Hemos iniciado esta campaña solicitando donaciones a todos los jubilados BID residentes en Chile. Por cada dólar de donación recibida por esta fuente, la Filial Chile colocará otro dólar adicional con recursos de su Fondo Rotatorio, hasta un máximo de US$500.00. También hemos extendido nuestra campaña a los chilenos residentes en el exterior que estamos seguros se sumarán con entusiasmo.
Pero adicionalmente, queremos invitar a las demás filiales, así como a la Asociación de Jubilados del BID en Washington a que realicen algún aporte. Se agradecerán vuestras contribuciones a ser realizadas a la brevedad y a mas tardar el próximo lunes 6 de febrero de la siguiente forma:
- Transferencia en US$ a la cuenta de la Filial que se maneja en el IDB-IIC Credit Union, Nº2585240.
- Enviar un email a nuestro Tesorero Francisco Ojeda ([email protected]), con copia a nuestra Secretaria Angélica Yañez ([email protected]) indicando el monto de la contribución realizada.
Los dineros recaudados serán entregados a una de las tres siguientes instituciones, según resuelvan conjuntamente nuestro Tesorero Francisco Ojeda y el Presidente que suscribe, a la luz de las noticias sobre la forma como en los próximos días estas instituciones estén manejando los recursos asociados a esta tragedia:
Un Techo para Chile
Desafío Lavantemos Chile
Cruz Roja Chilena
Todas las actividades relacionadas con esta campaña serán dirigidas y coordinadas por nuestro Tesorero Francisco Ojeda, debido a que yo me ausentaré del país por vacaciones.
Agradeciendo vuestra generosidad, les saludo con un abrazo fraterno,
Presidente Filial Chile
Asociación de Jubilados del BID
