The meeting, organized by the Ministry of Education of Chile (MINEDUC) and UNESCO, with the support of ECLAC, CAF, UNICEF and the World Bank, addresses the challenge of educational reactivation, the transformation of teaching, and financing. To overcome these challenges, it is necessary to have public policies to guarantee the right to education for 125 million students in the region.
In a new flagship annual report, ECLAC indicates that the region’s countries will continue to face an economic scenario of low growth. It is expected that regional Gross Domestic Product will grow 1.5% in 2024, slightly below the 1.7% estimated for the current year.
The XXXV Regional Seminar on Fiscal Policy began at ECLAC headquarters in Santiago, Chile, with the participation of authorities from the Ministries of Finance of 14 Latin American and Caribbean countries.
