Daniel Titelman, Director de la División de Desarrollo Económico de la CEPAL (en primer plano), inauguró este martes 25 de abril de 2017 la Sexta Reunión de la Mesa Directiva del Comité de Cooperación Sur-Sur, en Ciudad de México.

The organisation highlights that, given the protectionist movements around the world, multilateralism will allow the countries in Latin America and the Caribbean to develop equally and sustainably. Just by adding initiatives and efforts, the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean will achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), since what is required is global governance and new coalitions between the states, citizens and the private sector.

Given this need, South-South cooperation can and should be a significant contribution, says the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC).

The Director of the Economic Development Division of ECLAC, Daniel Titelman, opened on Tuesday, April 25, 2017, the Sixth Meeting of the Presiding Officers of the Committee for South-South Cooperation on behalf of the Executive Secretary of the United Nations agency. Alicia Bárcena, and stated that multilateral cooperation strengthens the possibility of the countries of the region to comply with the 2030 Agenda and its 17 SDGs.
