Multi-dimensional Review of Paraguay

Volume 2. In-depth Analysis and Recommendations

image of Multi-dimensional Review of Paraguay

Having achieved robust economic growth and remarkable macroeconomic stability over the past 15 years, Paraguay has set a course to become not only more prosperous, but also more inclusive by 2030. To deliver on its development ambition, the country will have to overcome a number of crosscutting constraints that limit progress towards widely shared improvements in citizen well-being, as identified in Volume 1 of the review. Putting Paraguay on a more inclusive development path requires co-ordinated actions to increase the capacity of the state to redistribute, to improve the delivery of public services, and to break the persistence of poverty and inequality across generations. This report discusses policy actions and priorities in three critical areas to make Paraguay’s development more inclusive. It presents in-depth analysis and recommendations to improve the effectiveness of social protection, the delivery of health services, and the formation of skills for all Paraguayans.

Overview and recommendations to meet Paraguay's development ambition

OECD Development Centre

Paraguay has experienced strong growth since the early 2000s and has committed itself to a development path to become more inclusive, efficient and transparent. To achieve sustainable and inclusive development and deliver on its vision to 2030, Paraguay will have to overcome two key challenges: buttressing the sources of economic prosperity by fostering structural transformation, and making development more inclusive. The objective of the Multi-dimensional Country Review of Paraguay is to assist the country in achieving its development objectives. The second volume provides in-depth analysis and policy recommendations in three key areas to better share the benefits of development: education, social protection and health. This chapter provides an overview of the analysis contained in the report, the main conclusions and their implications for development policy in Paraguay. The chapter also discusses possible scenarios for the future and their implications for development prospects and priorities in the country.
