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.

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.

Allow me to begin by thanking our host, Mr. Alan Greenspan, and his institution, the Federal Reserve Board of the United States, for their hospitality. I would especially like to thank Alan, as a good friend of Latin America and the Caribbean, for the interest and support he has always shown for the region.
