Economic future of Latin America

Over the past year the Covid-19 pandemic has hit Latin America particularly hard. While a bounce-back of sorts is already being seen, two decades of disappointing economic performance in comparison to other emerging market regions has left doubt in many analysts’ minds. With a continuing struggle to obtain high-quality vaccines in the region, further waves of Covid-19 can’t be discounted and a reopening boom may not occur. Despite this, the region may still benefit from wider global trends, a rise in commodity prices, increased global demands and a resumption of capital flows towards global markets. OMFIF is convening a panel of Latin America experts to plot the economic future of the region.
