The Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean will present next today its “Economic Survey of Latin American and Caribbean 2015,” a publication updating growth estimates for the region’s countries in the current year.
The commission’s executive secretary, Alicia Bárcena, will present the report during a press conference that will be held at the organization’s headquarters in Santiago, Chile, and will be broadcast live via Internet at the institution’s Web site.
“The Economic Survey of Latin American and Caribbean 2015” is one of the commission’s most important annual reports. It analyzes Latin America and the Caribbean’s economic performance during the year’s first semester and delivers the perspectives for the following months.
Additionally, in this edition the thematic chapters of the Survey will be focused on examining the dynamics of investment in Latin American countries, their relationship with the economic cycle, the role of public investment, the lack of infrastructure and the financial challenges of private investment.
