Please be advised: This event will premiere on this page at 3:00 p.m. EDT, Thursday, September 9. Register for the event here

Fair, transparent institutions and citizens’ trust are key elements for well-functioning democracies, economic productivity, and robust trade, investment, and innovation. In Latin America and the Caribbean, longstanding issues with fraud and waste have not only hindered development and eroded trust, but exacerbated the enormous toll that COVID-19 has taken.

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has devoted significant efforts to addressing corruption through programs promoting transparency and accountability and, under new leadership, is making a renewed push in this area. While corruption and kleptocracy will continue to pose serious challenges, the COVID-19 recovery also presents a critical opportunity for institutional reform, as identified in the IDB’s blueprint for recuperation and growth, “Vision 2025.”

Please join Hudson Institute for a live discussion on these issues with Mauricio Claver-Carone, president of the IDB, Hudson Senior Fellow Marshall Billingslea, and Research Fellow Nate Sibley. Audience members will be invited to submit questions to Mr. Claver-Carone during the discussion.
