Paraguay Updates Details of OECD Meeting in Asuncion

ASUNCION – Paraguay’s deputy foreign relations minister, Federico Gonzalez, presented on Monday at the Foreign Ministry details regarding the ministerial meeting of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development to be held in Asuncion on Nov. 16-17.

The event will be the first time that Paraguay has hosted an official meeting of the international organization after joining the OECD’s Development Center as its 52nd member in March.

“The OECD has become the center where Paraguay will be able to share experiences and good practices in the area of public policies that combine the different historical experiences of the other members in the different platforms offered by the organization,” Gonzalez said.

He said that the meeting will bring officials from OECD countries and the representatives of international organizations, such as the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean and the International Development Bank, to the Paraguayan capital.

The forum will be entitled “Toward systems of inclusive protection in Latin America and the Caribbean,” Gonzalez said, adding that the aim of the meeting will be to discuss issues of social protection, planning, financing and budgets.

Regarding Paraguay’s role, he said that the country’s priorities are “the improvement of competitiveness ... the eradication of extreme poverty, the improvement of educational levels and ... achieving inclusive economic development.”

The Paraguayan government allocated $98 million for social spending during the first half of 2017, representing a 6.6 percent increase over the same period in 2016.
