Tegucigalpa, October 30, 2019.- The Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) participated in the discussion forum denominated, “Building a digital agenda for development, regional competitiveness and integration.” The event was held in this capital within the framework of the Central American Prosperity Project.

Specifically, CABEI participated in the “Structure and regulation” panel, in which the Head of the Bank's Financial Institutions and Strategic Programs Department, Otto Gutierrez, indicated that the development of technology and communications, digital services and artificial intelligence promote the search for financial and technical support alternatives that enable the private sector to join the public sector in the provision of services that guarantee citizens quality, safe, transparent and reasonable cost services, facilitating the inclusion of the less favored sectors, while improving the competitiveness of the countries.

In addition, the event was attended by Mr. Matthew Rooney, who is director of the George W. Bush Institute's Economic Growth Initiative and had the support of the Eléutera Foundation in collaboration with the Honduran Council of Private Enterprise.
