The objective of the II Latin American and the Caribbean Forum is to analyze the good practices of financing and promotion of the tourism sector in development banking, as an important sector to consolidate and project in the process of economic and social development of our countries, examining, together with the governments/policymakers and international bodies, the critical aspects of financing and development for the attention of banks and financing institutions as instrument of credit policy. It will also continue with the discussion of the proposals of the way forward reached in the I Forum (Quito, 2010) with a set of considerations about marketing aspects, prices, destination connections, investments, infrastructure and logistics, and SMEs.

For more information, please find enclosed the Preliminary Program of the II Forum. In receiving your confirmation, we will put you in contact with GRUPO ROYALE in Cancun in charge of accommodations of participants.

This is a valuable opportunity for development banks and financial institutions supporting tourism in our countries, to learn about and share good practices in financing and promotion of the sector, and refine the criteria for the adoption of policies and the design of strategies, adequate to tourism development promotion objectives.
