EUROsociAL, through its Social Dialogue Technical Unit, is participating in a workshop in support of the Dominican ESC to promote the fiscal and education pact.
This assistance from the FIIAPP to the Dominican Republic Economic and Social Council will promote changes in public policies that will drive the necessary reforms to elevate the quality, coverage and effectiveness of the education system and achieve a fiscal pact aimed at financing sustainable development.
Besides the electrical pact, these objectives are provided for in the National Development Strategy 2030 as part of the mandate of the Dominican Republic ESC which requested assistance from EUROsociAL for its Social Dialogue Technical Unit to help it achieve these goals.
For this reason, FIIAPP is co-organising and participating along with the European Union Delegation and the Spanish ESC in a workshop to be held in Santo Domingo on 21st and 22nd February. Ignacio Soleto, as Coordinator of the FIIAPP Public Finance, Democratic Intuitionalism and Social Dialogue Technical Unit, will open the work sessions with a presentation on “ESC and Social Cohesion”. Other outstanding speeches will be dedicated to fiscal issues (by José Luis Michanea who holds a doctorate in economics from the University of Minnesota) and education reforms (by Consuelo Vélaz de Medrano who is a Professor of Education Research and Diagnostics Methods at the UNED).
This activity is part of the action to strengthen opportunities for dialogue in order to build consensus for social cohesion under the EUROsociAL Il Social Dialogue theme, the general objective of which is to promote a greater culture of consensus and agreement among political, economic and social stakeholders in Latin American countries in order to build joint solutions and generate answers to social cohesion problems so as to reduce conflict and propitiate more civil involvement in public policies.
EUROsociAL II, awarded to a consortium led by the FIIAPP, is the European Unions regional technical cooperation programme to promote social cohesion in Latin America, support national public policies aimed at improving the levels of social cohesion and strengthen the institutions that carry them out.
