FIU in DC: Trends 2030: Political, Economic and Security Forecast of Latin America and the Caribbean

This is a past event.

Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at 5:30pm to 7:30pm

601 New Jersey Ave NW Suite 730 Washington, D.C. 20001

Latin America and the Caribbean is one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse regions of the world with many great challenges unique to the Western Hemisphere.  Be it weak state capacity, economic underperformance, voter rejection of the political class or extreme weather events; all represent threats to their current economies and future economic growth and stability. 
The Kimberly Green Latin America and Caribbean Center and the Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy invite you to learn from a recently commissioned set of reports aimed at predicting trends for the region in the next 10 years. The dialogue will include findings relating to: 

·     Security and violence
·     Institutional capacity building 
·     Economic growth
·     Demographic shifts
·     Communications
·     Disaster risk reduction 

Hear from the experts:

Please join us as we discuss the three different reports produced by FIU and its partners on Central America, the Caribbean and South America with:

Luis Guillermo Solís Rivera, former president of Costa Rica and distinguished visiting scholar at the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center 

Ana Quintana, Senior Policy Analyst, Latin America and the Western Hemisphere, The Heritage Foundation
