A Partnership for a New Latin America
"It is Latin America's time to shine." Luis Alberto Moreno believes this is Latin America's decade and, as the most influential development banker in the western hemisphere, he's in a position to make that difference. Last summer, Moreno was re-elected to another five years as head of the Inter American Development Bank.
A Partnership for a New Latin America is an article he wrote for the Huffington Post in February.
Also, Luis Alberto Moreno, Business Solutions to Poverty, chronicles some of his successes as Minister of Development of Columbia, Columbian Ambassador to the US, and President of the IDB.
Through this experience, Moreno realized that strategy for creating prosperity for all citizens of any nation had to include the private sector. "Enterprise solutions to poverty" was a paradigm shift. Until then, most other decision makers in Latin America believed that government officials should set competitive strategy. Moreno was one of the first leaders in the world to observe that it wasn't working. Poverty rates were increasing. Traditional positive values were under assault. Social cohesion, itself, was threatened.
