The recent global crisis posed challenges that development banks were able to face from their counter cyclical function, mobilizing financial resources to mitigate its impact in the countries in the region. After these difficult moments and from a medium and long term perspective, it is the moment to ask ourselves the following questions: What is the next step for development banking? What should their relationship with the State be, and where should activities head to? What strategic and environmentally compatible productive sectors should be promoted to achieve the best insertion of our countries in the world economy? How will the development of infrastructure, the creation of human capital, technological innovation and other activities and new opportunities in development banking be financed? What is the role of development banking in the process of productive decentralization with social inclusion? What will the profile and regulation of financial systems after the crisis? These questions, that go beyond the crisis and that correspond to the function of development financial institutions will be addressed in ALIDE 40.

Main Topic:
Financing Latin American development beyond the crisis: new areas for development banking

Topic I:

Topic 1: “The emergence of new productive sectors in harmony with the environment, leadership and action of development banking"
The impact of the crisis highlighted the need for the region to accelerate the transit towards economies with a larger added value and articulation to the global market, less dependent on raw materials. This would involve boosting the productive transformation process to allow the expansion and diversification of the modes of international insertion, based on value adding, knowledge and internal technological effort to generate innovation. Development banks, through financial stimulation and the consensus of economic activities, may be cornerstones in the promotion of new schedules of productive organization and business models in order to compete globally, having special care in harmonizing these activities with the preservation of the environment.

Topic II:
Financing for productive decentralization with social inclusion
The economic model that has enabled the region to grow at important rates in the past few years and must reach sustainability, needs to advance further to improve the aspects of equity, distribution of income and economic efficiency, related to decentralizing and inclusive processes. In line with this objective, it is important to analyze how development financial institutions may support more efficiently the productive decentralization with social inclusion, by means of successful experiences that may become important references that may adapted in the countries.

Topic III:
The changes in international banking regulations and the adequacy of development banking management
The economic crisis raised the concern for deepening risk regulation, supervision and management in the banking sector. New international standards are starting to take shape in that sense, as a result of agreements among the main world economies. Development banking must be prepared to adequate their management before the threats that the new economic and regulatory context poses in designing and implementing financial instruments, in particular to support micro, small and medium enterprises, and also with regard to institutional governance and transparency.
