Please join the CSIS Americas Program and the CSIS Economics Program for a discussion on how the Covid-19 pandemic is affecting the outlook in Latin America. The ongoing surge in Covid-19 cases across the region raises questions about the timing of recovery, adequacy of macroeconomic responses, and the role of private and official sectors in responding to the unprecedented health and economic crises. This event will explore these issues, as well as sector-specific outlooks in the wake of the pandemic, and the outlook for sovereign and corporate debt.
