A Note from Americas Center Director Stephen Kay

In 2018, the Americas Center continued to work with key stakeholders within and outside the Federal Reserve System to provide leadership on key supervisory, financial, and economic matters related to the Americas. In this annual review, we highlight many of our accomplishments, including

  • outreach events focused on North American trade, Cuba's economy, and Brazil's economic outlook
  • outreach events geared to South Florida's foreign and international banking community
  • participation of Atlanta Fed staff as instructors for the Board of Governors's Foreign Technical Assistance (FTA) training programs for examiners from various foreign regulatory agencies in Latin America and other regions

As we look ahead to 2019, the Americas Center will continue to plan a range of initiatives to support the mission of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta (FRBA). We welcome your input on initiatives and invite you to contact us with your thoughts and suggestions.
