The Office of the Chief Economist provides guidance on strategic priorities and technical quality of economic analysis in the Latin America and the Caribbean region (LAC).
This mission is accomplished through:
Annual Flagship Reports
These review the economic and financial outlook of the Latin America and the Caribbean region. They also cover the short-term prospects and provide a deep analysis of the internal and external factors affecting the region's economic and financial performance.
The semiannual report reviews the economic and financial outlook for the Latin America and the Caribbean region.
These are one of our main lines of policy-oriented research. They focus on topics that are central to economic and social development policies in the region. Typically, they are relevant to different sectors and countries.
Research teams for these studies generally involve experts from outside the Office of the Chief Economist, including top internationally renowned researchers from universities and think tanks in the region.
Economics Seminar Series
These aim to promote awareness and debate of high-quality economic research that is relevant to the World Bank’s operations and strategy in the region. The seminars are thematically broad-ranging, covering all relevant areas of economics.
