The 12th International Meeting on Globalization and Development Problems, underway in this capital, devoted part of its Wednesday sessions to the analysis of the impact of the world economic crisis in Latin America and the Caribbean.
“Perspectives of the Economy in Latin America and Caribbean”, by Jorge Mattar, Deputy Director of the Economic Commission for Latin America (CEPAL), and “The Americas: Crisis Prevented. What’s next?” by Gabriel Di Bella and Andy Wolfe, from the International Monetary Fund, were two of the five papers under debate.

Following this session was the panel with the topic “Latin America, once more under debate”, with the participation of scholars from several nations.

Also part of Wednesday’s agenda was a panel dealing with integration as a way to face the challenges of today’s world.

The program also included the impact of the crisis on unemployment in Latin America, in charge of Miguel del Cid, from the World Labor Organization, as well as debates on Puerto Rico -with the presentations of several academicians from a Puerto Rican university- and on women and social movements amid the world crisis.

Also on Wednesday, a meeting of the Society of Latin American Political Economy and another one between visiting parliamentarians and senators and representatives from the Cuban Parliament, took place.
