The conference will bring together researchers and policymakers from Asia and Latin America to discuss how the two regions can learn from each others’ experiences with trade liberalization, investment priorities, growth strategies, rural-urban transformation, social protection, and infrastructure development, to encourage economic growth and reduce poverty and hunger.
