Summary: I will discuss the impact of ICMI on Mathematics Education in Latin America, and how the ideas exposed in the ICMEs had an influence in the region. In particular, I will discuss the creation of the affiliated committee, the IACME/Interamerican Commission of Mathematics Education, and its relations with other regions of the world.
