The 31st “Regional Fiscal Policy Seminar” organized by the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (UNECLAC) took place in Santiago, Chile on March 25th and 26th, 2019. The seminar is a vital forum for dialogue on fiscal policy in the region, uniting international experts from authorities, international organizations, academia, civil society and the private sector. Through the course of the seminar, topics such as the challenges for public finances in taxing the digital economy, the fiscal space of subnational governments and expenditure pressures of the demographic-epidemiological transition were discussed. The Green Fiscal Policy Network contributed to the discussion by presenting the current status quo of fiscal policies, and providing forecasts of how we see it developing for the future.
