Shaping the Future of Financial Services in the Digital Economy: Proceedings from the Fourth Policy Knowledge Summit between Latin America and the Caribbean and China
In 2014, the Inter-American Development Bank and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences established the Latin America and the Caribbean and China Policy and Knowledge Summit. This initiative has contributed to expand the collaboration between LAC and China and generated fruitful dialogue between policymakers from both regions, fostering strategic alliances and collaborative networks of technical expertise. Between 2014 and 2017, four Summits have been organized to discuss important areas of mutual interests for the regions: urbanization, leadership in the public sector, productivity and innovation, and digital finance. These topics continue to be relevant and increasingly gain more interest within the LAC region. This is a summary of the presentations at the fourth Latin American and the Caribbean Policy and Knowledge Summit relating to the impacts of the digital economy, held in Shangai and Hangzhou, China September 20-22, 2017.
