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.
