Natural Resource Development and Inclusive Economic Growth (Roundtable Discussion)

The Andean region is endowed with large quantities of mineral and petroleum resources. As these resources continue to be developed, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru face important fiscal and macroeconomic challenges. For example, what kind of fiscal framework should be used in the face of revenue volatility and exhaustibility? How can these revenues best be used to achieve sustainable and equitable growth, while ensuring macroeconomic stability and fiscal sustainability? This roundtable seeks to address these important policy questions and provide an opportunity for high-level government officials from the region, leading experts, and Fund management to share their thoughts and discuss current initiatives.
