Strengthening of the State and Social Equality Defended at the CEPAL Summit
San Salvador, August 29 (RHC) -- The Economic Commission of Latin American and the Caribbean (ECLAC) held its 34th session in San Salvador, where they discussed more active roles of the state, social equality, and neoliberal policies.
The topics of discussion were addressed at the opening ceremony by the President of El Salvador, Mauricio Funes, and the Executive Director of ECLAC Alicia Bárcenas.
Funes affirmed that his government shares the point of view with ECLAC that strategies for equality and the construction of a state that serves democracy and development should be implemented. He also warned about the influence of neo-liberal doctrines, which he said have not lost strength and are harmful to the countries of the region.
