Calendar of Activities 2020

The Center for Latin American Monetary Studies (CEMLA) has been a benchmark in central banking issues in the region for many years. In a changing economic environment with significant challenges, CEMLA reaffirms its commitment to the highest standards in the study of these issues and changes, not only for its understanding but also to facilitate its management. Thus, CEMLA presents a Program of Activities strengthened for the current year, with a deep commitment to its membership.

Below are the courses, workshops, seminars, meetings and other activities scheduled for 2020. The invited institutions nominate their officials through the registration forms, and the confirmation of acceptance is then sent to the applicants by e-mail once CEMLA has verified that the appropriate profile is complied with in order to ensure a balanced and diverse participation of the members in all activities.
