Development issues : presentations to the 48th meeting of the Development Committee : Cuestiones relativas al desarrollo : exposiciones presentadas en la 48 reunion del Comite para el Desarrollo - 26 de abril de 1994 (Spanish)

The Development Committee held its 48th meeting in Washington, D.C. on April 26, 1994. There were three main items on the agenda: "Population and Migration"; "Trade after the Uruguay Round"; and "Commodities". The first item gave Ministers an opportunity to review some of the key population issues and particularly their financial implications. Ministers identified three priorities: family planning, better education (especially for girls) and basic health care (in particular, maternal and child care) which will be further discussed at the UN Cairo Conference in September 1994. They agreed that these sectors need more funding, from a combination of charges to consumers, government resources, bilateral donors, and multilateral organizations, and that help must be provided particularly for the poorest countries. On the second item, Ministers agreed that the conclusion of the Uruguay Round opens up new prospects for many developing countries, although a few may need special help to get them through the transition period. On the third item, Ministers recongnized that commodity prices are not likely to return to the levels of the 1970s and the 1980s. Consequently, their main conclusion is that developing countries need to be realistic about this, and not to postpone adjustment in the hope of recovery.
