Thanks to co-organizing institutions: Asia Society DC Center and Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. For most of their history, India and Latin America have been on the periphery of each other’s foreign policy. For nearly half a century, they turned their backs to the world economy. Their concerns were elsewhere, mostly on their domestic economies and their immediate neighbors.

(Extract on the Haitian situation after the earthquake of Jan. 12) I can't begin this speech without mentioning the Haitian tragedy, as you would say in French, cas de force majeure, Haiti est a l’ordre du jour. A donor meeting will be held today in Montreal.

Good evening. President Garcia, national and local authorities. It is a real pleasure to be here, for me and for those who have come from all corners of Latin America and the world. And a special word of thanks to Peru and Arequipa for how you have welcomed us and for the success that I know this forum will have.

Latin America and the Caribbean experienced solid growth in 2007, external indebtedness declined in relative terms, and international reserves have risen. However, inflationary expectations have started to mount, due in part to the increase in oil and food prices.

I want to thank you for this invitation to speak to such a select group of business leaders, and to open what I believe to be a very interesting discussion of trends in Latin America and the Caribbean. It is with great regard that I bring greetings to Antonio Fernández-Galiano and Cristóbal Montoro, as I do to the ministers with us today, and to all of you present here. I have come to Spain almost every year to speak at various gatherings with private investors in Latin America and the Caribbean. Many of you have participated in these discussions.

We’ve gathered here today to showcase one of the most successful water operators in Latin America and the Caribbean, so allow me to first congratulate SABESP for reaching such an important landmark. The Inter-American Development Bank takes particular pride in SABESP, because over the course of 20 years we have lent nearly $900 million to help finance its expansion.

Buenos día a todos y gracias por acompañarnos en este seminario sobre financiamiento de fuentes de energía limpia. En particular, quiero agradecer a mis colegas que participan en esta sesión inaugural al Sr. José Goldemberg, Secretario de Medio Ambiente del estado de Sao Paulo; y a la representante del gobierno de Alemania, la Sra. Ingrid-Gabriela Hoven. El tema de la energía—y el de la energía limpia en particular—es de alta prioridad en las actividades del Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo, pues es un asunto que genera grandes desafíos y oportunidades para los países de nuestra región.
