Reaction Of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) And Chairman Of The Committee On Appropriations To The Election Of A New President Of The Inter-American Development Bank

“After two turbulent years, I am pleased that a Latin American will once again lead the IDB.  Its mission is especially important today, when the Latin American and Caribbean countries are facing immense economic and social challenges exacerbated by climate change, COVID, and the secondary effects of the war in Ukraine.  It is vital that the Bank prioritizes lending to support education and equitable development to reduce poverty, investments in clean energy, and strong conditionality to strengthen the rule of law and prevent corruption."
