IDB Sponsors Seminar to Discuss Impact of Financial Crisis on Latin America

The U.S. financial crisis has sent shivers throughout the financial world. The U.S. Congress is struggling to agree on a $700 billion rescue package to contain the crisis, which has completely changed the banking industry and caused a shake-up in credit markets around the globe.


The Inter-American Development Bank has invited a team of experts to discuss the impact of the international financial turmoil on Latin American economies.  They will try to answer challenging questions such as whether this will mark the end of the region's recent economic boom or whether signs of financial distress have already begun to surface in some nations in the region.




When: Friday, October 10, 10 am - 1pm

Location: 1300 NW New York Ave, Washington DC (IDB headquarters)
Enrique V. Iglesias Auditorium, Room CR3
