IMF: Latin America and the Caribbean are Recovering, but Slowly

The International Monetary Fund discussed regional economic issues in Latin America and the Caribbean on Friday, saying the region is recovering, though slowly. The region is trailing many others amid a global recovery, according to the Western Hemisphere Department. 
Venezuela represents a trouble spot, though fears of spillovers to neighbors should be tempered, said Robert Rennhack, Deputy Director, Western Hemisphere Department, IMF.
