About the product

The region ended the 1990s with mixed results in the area of economic and social planning. The publication suggests that there is a need for the State to have an agency or representative through which it can perform basic planning duties, whatever the style of development or reform adopted. These include compiling experiences, consolidating gains, amending what is considered inappropriate and introducing any changes that may be necessary. It is hoped that this study will help governments throughout the region to combine a long-term outlook with an efficient allocation of fiscal resources in order to reduce poverty and inequalities.
