The Department of Research and Chief Economist (RES) generates new ideas to enrich the knowledge base that supports the policy agenda of the Bank and its member countries for achieving sustainable and equitable development in the region. To maximize the impact of its research, RES carries out activities that serve as inputs to Bank departments, governments, the academic community and public opinion in the region.

RES advises management on economic and development issues, conducts research and analysis on macro- and microeconomic trends, and oversees development of the Bank´s quantitative and analytical databases. It dons a team of researchers with excellent academic credentials, superior research and policymaking experience, and expertise in different areas.
