World Bank Research and Development Center in Chile

The World Bank Research and Development Center in Chile was established by the Government of Chile and the World Bank Development Economics Vice-presidency in 2017.

The financial sector work focuses on conducting research related to financial sector development relevant to Chile, the Latin America region, and other economies. The goal is to generate and disseminate knowledge that will inform policy makers, practitioners, and the academic community.

As output, researchers associated with the Center are producing original academic work as well as research and policy briefs (RPBs), synthesizing current discussions. They are also organizing workshops in Chile.
