2. IDB 2017 Macroeconomic Report: Routes to Growth in a New Trade World. This report explores the fiscal position and trends in LAC as well as the case for regional integration. The report encourages LAC to pursue a simple route to integration, claiming that previous attempts were too complex and ambitious.
The IDB estimates that a Free Trade Area in LAC would create a $5T single market amounting to 7% of the world’s GDP. The IDB claims that Mexico and Brazil have the “Gravitational Pull” to kick start this initiative.
