Good morning to everyone. I would like to welcome all of you to the Inter-American Development Bank. The IDB believes in the power of sports to mobilize the private, public and non-profit sectors to have a positive impact on youth. In the past two years, the Bank has invested over five million dollars in non-reimbursable financing for this type of initiatives. We believe that the skills learned on the soccer field can be transformed into skills for life and skills for employment.

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.

Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen. I want to thank Bill Guyton and the World Cocoa Foundation for this opportunity to get acquainted and for the honor and pleasure of sharing this occasion with my friend and distinguished fellow speaker, Anne Venneman. I’m excited to be here today for the simple reason that you and I are in the same business—the business of sustainable development. The areas where cocoa is grown and harvested, with few exceptions, are areas marked by poverty, inadequate education and healthcare, and limited economic opportunity.

Greetings Good afternoon! It’s a great pleasure for me to visit the American Enterprise Institute for the first time in my new capacity as President of the Inter-American Development Bank. One of my main missions at the IDB is to transform it into a true “ideas bank”. I think there is much our institution can learn from successful ideas-driven organizations like the AEI, and I look forward to a closer relationship between our two institutions in the years ahead.

AIDS is a challenge to development that affects every continent. The transformation of AIDS from health concern to global development issue reflects the rapidity with which HIV has spread and the magnitude of its economic and social consequences. It also underscores the need for quick, decisive, and sustained action. AIDS is radically changing our perspective on the need for cooperation because it cannot be stopped without a coordinated and collaborative global effort. That is why we are here today.
