About Us

The Institute for the Integration of Latin America and the Caribbean (INTAL), a unit of the Integration and Trade Sector of the IDB, seeks to generate and disseminate knowledge on the benefits of integration processes, the trade dynamics of the region and the impact of new technologies on trade strategies. Every month, we publish the INTAL Connection, where we share the latest news on integration. The Integration & Trade Journal contains research carried out by world experts on topics that are key for the regional future. Together with Latinobarómetro, we measure what Latin Americans think of the integration strategies of their Countries. With other initiatives, such as i+i Node, the joint training program with the WTO, and the contribution of publications such as the MERCOSUR Report or the Trade Monitor, we keep the outlook for Latin America and the Caribbean updated. Moreover, since 2000 the INTAL is also the Secretariat of IIRSA Technical Coordination Committee (CCT), within the UNASUR, thus contributing to regional efforts towards a greater physical connectivity.
