A Program on the Political Economy of Latin America and the Caribbean (ProPELAC) Event
On November 16, 2023, CLAS hosted the first event organized by its Program on the Political Economy of Latin America and the Caribbean (ProPELAC). The event included presentations from Osmel Manzano, CLAS Adjunct Professor and Regional Economic Advisor for the Andean Region at the IADB and Antoni Estevadeordal, Georgetown Americas Institute (GAI) Resident Fellow. The presentations were followed by commentary from Miguel Coronado, General Manager of the Andean Country Group and Venezuela Representative for the IADB. The presentations and commentary reflected on the IADB’s new Economic Report New Horizons in Productive Transformation for the Andean Region. To close out the event, moderator and ProPELAC co-chair Professor Jenny Guardado led a Q&A with attendees, including students, faculty, and other members of our community. Thanks to all for attending and making this a great event.
