The session

The thirty-fourth session of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) will be held in San Salvador, from 27 to 31 August 2012. By resolution 656(XXXIII), adopted at the thirty-third session of ECLAC (Brasilia, 30 May to 1 June 2010), member States agreed that El Salvador would be the host country of the meeting.

The session is the most important event of each biennium for ECLAC. It provides a forum for the consideration of issues of importance for the development of the countries of the region and an opportunity to review the activities of the Commission.

The document that ECLAC will present during the Session will focus on structural policies necessary to promote economic growth by increasing jobs and equality - as a continuation of the contents addressed in the previous book (Time for Equality: Closing Gaps, Opening Trails) in 2010.
