The World Bank invites you to join a conversation about the just-released Regional Economic Review findings for Latin America and the Caribbean: "New Approaches to Closing the Fiscal Gap." The new report looks at the region's growth prospects and the challenges countries face in reducing poverty and inequality.

A high-level panel will share views about the region's critical conjunctural macroeconomic challenges, considering persistent inflationary pressures, tight fiscal space, and sustainability issues.
