In a bid to encourage debate in Latin America and the Caribbean on the contribution of creativity as a key element of economic and social development, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) published in 2013 the book: “The Orange Economy: An Infinite Opportunity” (in Spanish and English) a report on the creative and cultural economy of this region written by IDB officials Felipe Buitrago and IvÃ¡n Duque MÃ¡rquez. A panel comprised of members from American University’s Center for Latin American & Latino Studies (CLALS), together with its counterparts at the IDB’s Culture, Creativity, and Solidarity Affairs Division and local business leaders will meet to discuss the importance of how this report’s new data impacts this international region’s economy.
