Meeting of Government Schools in Quito promotes dialog between China and Latin America

Wed, 07/05/2017

FGV’s International Affairs Division (DINT) attended the ‘1st International Conference of Government and Public Administration Schools: China-Latin America and the Caribbean dialog’, which took place on June 6-8 in Quito, Ecuador.

Held at the National High Studies Institute (IAEN) of Ecuador, a reference institution in training Ecuadorian civil servants, the conference featured representatives of the Chinese Academy of Governance (CAG) and eight government schools from Latin American countries, including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, and Peru. The main purpose of the meeting was to establish a forum to discuss and comment on public administration models and paradigms, based on a comparative perspective between the models adopted in China and Latin America.

In addition to the government schools, reference institutions in the study and development of public policies were also invited to contribute to the debate. FGV attended the event alongside CEPAL (Economic Commission for Latin America), CLAD (Latin-American Center for Development Administration), IASIA (International Association of Administration Schools and Institutes), and GLAP (Latin American Group for Public Administration). During the second day of the event, which took place at the main office of UNASUL (Union of South American Nations), the guest institutions were able to detail their missions and main lines of work. The main focus of the presentations was the development of human capacity as a fundamental condition to improve regional public administration.

A meeting that took place between the Dean of IAEN, Sebastian Torres, and the Project Coordinator of FGV’s Latin American Center for Public Policy (CLPP), Klaus Stier, defined a joint line of work to be followed to increase cooperation efforts between the two institutions in capacity-building projects for Ecuadorian civil servants.
