In Panama City, representatives from eight national institutes, and three other countries as observers, met in May to discuss issues affecting the management and sustainability of the institutes and the Forum’s support to the Latin America network initiative, which was launched at the OECD, IFC, Forum 2009 Latin American Roundtable in Chile. “There was considerable discussion about regional and national differences,” said Santiago Chaher, the Forum’s senior consultant for the region. “Some countries have institutes with a high level of development while others are just starting to build them, so each experience counts as the new institutions are learning from experience and the developed ones are learning new ideas.” For more information, click here.
