MEPyD and ECLAC spread awareness of the report “Income Inequality”
The National Association of Young Entrepreneurs (ANJE) received a copy of the report “Income Inequality in the Dominican Republic 2012-2019” from the Ministry of Economy, Planning, and Development and the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). Pável Isa Contreras, the minister of economy, planning, and development, presided over the meeting alongside Jaime Senior, the president of ANJE, Rolando Ocampo, the director of ECLAC’s statistics division, and Rosa Canete Alonso, the director of the ministry of economy’s analysis of poverty, inequality, and democratic culture.
The study encourages openness and offers a more thorough measurement based on household surveys and additional sources like tax returns and national accounts. Isa Contreras expressed that the organization has characterized itself as a bold, innovative association that opens paths that are giving its results in the Dominican business community with all the concerns raised at a social and environmental level, which is very positive for the nation. She was pleased to speak with the Board of Directors, members of the Economy and Energy commissions, as well as the ANJE’s Sustainable Development commission. For the MEPyD, he said, “I am happy to receive the ANJE team.”
The country is facing the triple challenge of maintaining, accelerating, and achieving economic prosperity with equity, so he thought it was important to discuss the report that deals with a new estimate of income inequality in the nation.
