Hide / Show Abstract

In 2012, ECLAC proposed to the governments of the region a new integrated approach to development, which identified equality as the objective, structural change as the way forward and public policy as the instrument. Structural change entails reallocating the economy’s resources towards activities or sectors that provide greater value added or are more technology-or knowledge-intensive.
