During the 56th session of the Commission of Social Development of the United Nations in New York, the United States recognized that for Peru to reduce its poverty levels, the international community needs to realize that a special treatment is needed.
According to information from El Peruano, the Minister of Development and Social Inclusion, Jorge Meléndez Celis, reaffirmed in this meeting that “Peru is committed to mobilizing all of the possible resources to reduce poverty and to give voice to the most excluded populations in the country”.
Meléndez also held that the social agenda, expressed in the National Development and Social Inclusion Politics, is entirely aligned to the Agenda 2030 of sustainable development.
“We’ve set ourselves very ambitious goals for the quinquennium 2016-2021, like to eradicate poverty in 15%”, said Meléndez in the United Nations. He also pointed out that among other actions to take into consideration for this matter is the strengthening of links between the conditional cash transfer programs, the financial inclusion initiatives and the productive programs in the rural area.
