Macroeconomic Policy and Finance
Network of Central Banks and Finance Ministries
The Network of Central Banks and Finance Ministries is a discussion group whose permanent members include the Chief Economists of the Central Banks and Finance Ministries of Latin America and the Caribbean. It operates under Chatham House rules. The IDB Research Department is the technical secretariat for this Network, founded in 1995.
The purpose of the group is to promote a high-level policy discussion on macroeconomic and financial issues as well as foster collegial bonds among policymakers from Central Banks and Finance Ministries. The network also fosters the interaction between the IDB Research Team and the region's policymakers, thereby helping to set its research agenda and focus its policy advice on relevant concerns.
