Despite recent improvements, the Caribbean region is still grappling with headwinds affecting social dynamics, fiscal outcomes, and economic growth. Global commodity prices—particularly for food and energy—remain volatile and above pre-pandemic levels, straining household budgets.

El acero, el cemento, los productos químicos, el vidrio o los ladrillos forman la realidad física de nuestra civilización. Los utilizamos para construir casas, escuelas, hospitales, oficinas, carreteras e incluso para crear estructuras que nos ayuden a evitar o reducir el impacto de los desastres naturales.
