"CEPAL Review" Chinese Special Issue Released

 

CDRF released "CEPAL Review" Chinese special issue at a press conference on October 30th, 2012 in Beijing.

"CEPAL Review" was founded in 1976 by Raúl Prebisch, the first Chief Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). Up till now, the journal has published over 100 consecutive issues including more than 1000 articles on developmental issues of Latin America and the Caribbean regions. In the past 36 years, "CEPAL Review" is committed to spreading new ideas and viewpoints on local economic and social development from ECLAC and the academia. It is also an important platform of academic communication for Latin America and the Caribbean as well as other Spanish- and English-speaking regions.

This issue aims at discussing CEPAL Review’s effect in spreading ECLAC’s ideas and analyses on developmental issues, and has reflected the increasingly important bilateral relationship between China and Latin America and the Caribbean.

The special issue contains part of the articles published in "CEPAL Review" from 2000 to 2011, under the theme of resolving the long-term problems faced by ECLAC, such as growth and technology advances, poverty and social inequality, sustainable development, democracy and citizenship, etc. Articles are selected based on three objectives: first, to give analyses on economic and trade relations between China and Latin America and the Caribbean; second, to present Chinese readers articles on Chinese economic and social development from the perspective of Latin American and Caribbean; and third, to give Chinese academia and policy-makers an overall introduction of main articles published on "CEPAL Review".

The cooperation between China and Latin America regions is not restricted to economy and trade, and can expand to cover a wider range of human development issues such as poverty alleviation, income distribution, social welfare, education and medical health. Although the two regions are distinctively different from each other in economic and social institutions, certain Latin American countries’ experiences can serve as valuable reference for China. For example, Mexico, Brazil, Chile and other countries succeed in improving human capital investment, reducing poverty, narrowing income distribution gap and perfected social welfare system through public policy innovation. Featuring a number of articles with in-depth discussions on policy issues such as anti-poverty and human development, this issue is a good reference to promote mutual understanding and wider cooperation.
