Venezuela is at a turning point. Interim President Juan Guaidó has received the backing of both the Venezuelan people and more than sixty countries. Looking ahead to the democratic transition, the interim government is focused on the reconstruction of Venezuela’s economy and public sector. Here, the Venezuelan National Assembly has proposed Plan País as the most promising opportunity yet to steer Venezuela out of its crisis. Beyond domestic support, Plan País will require the help of the international community and multilateral cooperation for successful implementation. How would Plan País rebuild Venezuela, and what would be the role of the Inter-American Development Bank and other multilateral development banks?

Join the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center on Thursday, March 14, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. (EDT) for the Washington DC launch of the interim government’s national reconstruction plan. Portions of this event will be held in Spanish with simultaneous interpretation provided.
