Brasilia - The Ministry of National Integration, through the Department of Regional Development Policies, participates in the International Workshop "Inclusive Growth: what is it and what does it take?" on 7-8 December in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil.
The event is an initiative of the International Policy Centre for Inclusive Growth (IPC-IG) to promote, together with experts from around the world, the debate and reflection on strategies for inclusive development and social protection.
The workshop will bring together representatives from China, India, South Africa and Brazil. They are government official, experts, and intellectuals dedicated to issues related to development policies.
On Friday (10/12), the Secretary of Regional Development Policies of the Ministry of National Integration, Mr. Enrique Villa, will participate in the panel "Competitive Systems for Territorial Development". He will present Brazil's National Policy for Regional Development (PNDR) as a tool to promote sustainable competitiveness of the Brazilian territory.
At that occasion, Mr.Villa will defend the idea that the PNDR is a major instrument of territorial inclusion that the country has, with the possibility of consolidating itself as a complementary strategy for social development policy of the federal government, referring to the resolution of the impasse that historically places Brazil as one of the most unequal nations in the world. "The PNDR is clearly a policy of including people and institutions in the national productive dynamics. It is our responsibility to modernize it and make it the definitive instrument for assisting in the reduction of the unwanted regional inequalities in the country, " says the Secretary.
