Considering the expectations arising from these activities for interinstitutional complementarity and cohesion among participants and due to the growing interest in further expanding partnerships, the Permanent Secretariat of SELA is organizing the Seminar “Closing gaps in Latin American integration processes”. The aim of this event is to provide support tools for the design of public policies that prioritize the analysis and use of methodologies associated with the search for convergence and reduction of asymmetries between relatively more and less developed countries.

  The Permanent Secretariat has invited various experts and speakers to participate in four working sessions, in which they will present the initiatives for regional convergence that are based on the existence of economic asymmetries, in order to enhance progress in some of the dimensions of integration whose treatment is still incipient. In addition, participants will review several studies on gaps, with special emphasis on social disparities and the efforts by the various regional players in designing public policies to address such disparities.
