Tegucigalpa, August 23, 2021.- The Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) will hold its LXI Board of Governors on September 3 and 4 to discuss its 2020-2024 strategic plan, which has demonstrated its flexibility and responsiveness in promoting integration and social and economic development in the region.

The most representative advances on various management fronts that have improved the quality of life of Central Americans will also be highlighted.
'CABEI's financial strength allowed us to approve the highest amount for the region in the Bank's history in 2020, one of the most challenging years for the world economy, for US$3.459 billion, and to disburse US$2.538 billion, giving continuity to projects of great importance for our partner countries,' highlighted CABEI Executive President, Dr. Dante Mossi.
For the second consecutive year, the Board of Governors will be held in a hybrid format, combining face-to-face and virtual meetings, following sanitary measures to ensure the safety of participants from the 15 member countries, including Ministers of Finance, Economy, Finance and Central Banks.
The activity will be led by CABEI Executive President Dr. Dante Mossi and CABEI Governor and Minister of Finance of Honduras, Luis Fernando Mata Echeverri.
