are pleased to invite you to:

 Industrial Policy, Macro-Economic Performance, and Cities in Latin America:
A Seminar
ola-eclac seminar

One of the features of the current debates about economic policy is the growing recognition of the need for industrial policy as a key component in development strategy. This issue has received relatively more attention in Latin America than in other regions. Progressive Latin American governments have shifted their attitudes on the role of the state in promoting and supporting efforts to increase industrial output and productivity. This is in sharp contrast to the public debates in North America or Europe where most economic policy discussions are mired in the discussion of austerity in fiscal policy and the impact of debt on long-term economic performance.

The Observatory on Latin America (OLA) in collaboration with the United Nations Economic Commission on Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) will host a two-day seminar with global experts to explore industrial policy, macro-economic performance and cities in Latin America and examine the following linkages:
- the link between industrial policy and macroeconomic performance in Latin American countries 
- the link between industrial policy and urban variables in Latin America
- the links between industrial policy, new technologies, sectors, and territories

Speakers include: Michelle de Pass, Michael Cohen, Emily Miller, Mario Cimoli, Gabriel Porcile, William Milberg, Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, Martin Abeles, Javier Esguevillas, Robert Buckley, Rick McGahey, William Morrish, Gulelat Kebede, Adriana Clemente, Rachel Meltzer
