2013 LABA Conference: Economic Trends and Capital Markets in Latin America

The 2013 Latin American Business Association Conference

Friday, April 26, 2013
1:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Anderson School of Management

The world has put its eyes on Latin America as most of the countries in the region have embarked on promising paths of macroeconomic stability and growth. It is not only Mexico and Brazil that have gained the attention of financial analysts and economists, but it is also the countries of the Pacific Rim of South America, such as Colombia, Peru, and Chile that have experienced impressive economic performance over recent years. However, the region is still experiencing sharp social inequalities, and governments face increasing social demands as their countries become more affluent. How to navigate such a challenging environment is a critical question.

The 2013 Latin American Business Conference will provide important insights from influential leaders in the region on key economic issues that the region currently faces and will continue to experience in the coming years. The Conference will also address the integration of capital markets in Latin America, which is one of the main tendencies in the region.
