An Agenda for Budgeting: Establishing a Budget Network in the LAC Region

May 2005
This presentation was commissioned by the Public Management and Transparency Network of the Regional Policy Dialogue for the VI Hemispheric Meeting celebrated on May 23rd and 24th, 2005. OECD's Senior Budget Officials Network. How it has grown over the past 25 years. The insularity of budget offices. Budget Officials rarely meet with counterparts in other countries. Countries in LAC region can learn from one another. Need for basic capacities, not avant-garde reforms. Why a LAC Network should differ from SBO more oriented to development and governance.
