As INESAD was one of the main organizers (together with SEBOL and UPSA) of the 20th annual meeting of the Latin American and Carribbean Economics Association (LACEA), almost all of the INESAD staff went to Santa Cruz de la Sierra to help with the organization and participate in this major event. Below are some of the more fun and memorable moments from the conference.
The evening before the conference, CAINCO generously invited all participants to a welcome cocktail. Evo Morales was supposed to come too, but something came up at last minute and he sent Luis Arce, Minister of Economics and Finance, instead. Here is most of the INESAD team by the end of the cocktail, celebrating that the conference is off to a good start.
