Volume I. Initial Assessment

image of Multi-dimensional Review of Paraguay

Paraguay has achieved strong and resilient growth and made progress across a range of development outcomes since it emerged from a prolonged period of economic and political instability in the early 2000s. In 2014, the country adopted its first National Development Plan, setting course towards an ambitious vision of the country’s future. To maintain the pace of economic growth and achieve more inclusive development Paraguay will need to overcome a number of institutional, economic and social constraints that challenge its development model. This first volume of the Multi-dimensional Review of Paraguay analyses the country’s development performance and presents the main constraints to the country’s development. It examines five broad areas, corresponding to the key areas of the Sustainable Development Goals: prosperity, people’s well-being, planet, peace and institutions, and partnerships and financing.

Partnerships: Resourcing Paraguay's development agenda

OECD Development Centre

This chapter describes how Paraguay’s network of partnerships with external and domestic entities generates financing to support its development agenda. It examines public finances and the scope to increase the resources available for the public sector, focusing on the potential to improve the performance of Paraguay’s public finance framework, including how to recalibrate expenditure towards areas that offer greater developmental returns, such as infrastructure, while maintaining fiscal sustainability. The chapter then examines the availability of resources for private-sector firms, through foreign direct investment (FDI) and financing from the domestic financial system, and the potential for a more effective domestic banking system. The focus throughout is on the resources that are, or could be, available for development activities, rather than how those financing flows have been used.
