The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and El Salvador will host the XIII Regional Conference, which will focus on fiscal policy, regional outlook and financial integration.
conference will include representatives from El Salvador, Panama and other Central American nations. The main focus will be on the region’s macroeconomic outlook, including experience, growth, fiscal policies and responsibility frameworks. Attendees will also discuss the risks and benefits from the growing financial integration.
The conference will unite finance ministers, central bank governors, and financial sector superintendents from the area. There will also be leaders from multilateral organizations and senior officials from the IMF.
“The conference will bring to the table major regional policymakers to discuss options to strengthen policy frameworks and reforms to remove investment obstacles, with a view to enhance the resilience of the regional economy, raise potential growth, and ease inequality gaps,” Alejandro Werner, director of the IMF’s Western Hemisphere Department, said.
Salvador Sanchez-Ceren, the president of El Salvador, will begin the conference. Mitsuhiro Furusawa, the Deputy Managing Director of the IMF, will head the IMF delegation alongside Werner, the supervisor of IMF activities and operations in the Western Hemisphere.
