Hide / Show Abstract

In a continuation of the trend seen in recent years, in 2000 the leading Latin American economies drew on experience gained from dealing with the decade's wide external fluctuations, in an attempt to reduce their vulnerability to economic shocks. This effort generally aimed at alleviating the financial burden of debt -by reducing the relative weight of short-term obligations and rescheduling external debt repayment liabilities into the long term- while also creating room for manoeuvre in domestic macroeconomic policy in order to have more scope for smoothing out short-run fluctuations. In addition, a number of integration groupings made renewed efforts to coordinate their domestic macroeconomic policies more closely, particularly the Andean Community and Mercosur.
