Established in 1996 as a joint initiative of CAF – Development Bank of Latin America, the Inter-American Dialogue, and the Organization of
American States, the Annual CAF Conference has brought together more than 1,000 world leaders to debate and discuss the most pressing
developments facing the Americas. The event has grown to become the primary forum for policy makers and analysts, journalists,
governments and international organizations, entrepreneurs and investors, and civil society representatives to review progress in the
Western Hemisphere and address pending challenges.
