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.

IDB Annual Meetings often present an opportunity to set the course for the coming months and even years. What are some of the key issues at this annual meeting in Cancun?

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.

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.

Good morning. It is privilege to join you again at this important conference. I want to thank John Murphy and Adrean Rothkopf for generously inviting me for a second time. When I spoke to you last year I had not quite started my new job at the Inter-American Development Bank. I’ve learned my way around the building now, and I’m also a little more qualified to talk about the outlook for Latin America and the Caribbean. I’d like to start by addressing a question that I think many of you have been discussing. Is history repeating itself in Latin America?
