Description

Este documento propone una estrategia para reducir la pobreza en Guatemala. La estrategia ha sido formulada por el Gobierno de la República para mejorar las condiciones de vida de los guatemaltecos más pobres, y así empezar a resolver el más grave problema que enfrenta la sociedad. La estrategia contiene el reconocimiento de esta grave realidad y representa un cambio fundamental en las políticas gubernamentales al dirigir una significativa proporción creciente del gasto público hacia los pobres y hacia las áreas rurales. A diferencia de los países pobres altamente endeudados, la estrategia no ha sido motivada por una promesa de condonación de deuda, sino por el compromiso del Gobierno de la República de mejorar las condiciones sociales.

This document proposes a strategy to reduce poverty in Guatemala. The strategy has been formulated by the Government of the Republic to improve the living conditions of the poorest Guatemalan people, and begin to solve the most serious problem facing society. The strategy contains the recognition of this grave reality and represents a fundamental change in government policies to address a significant increase in the proportion of public spending toward the poor and toward rural areas. In contrast to the highly indebted poor countries, the strategy has not been motivated by a promise of debt forgiveness, but by the commitment of the Government of the Republic to improve social conditions.
