Minister José Molinas, of the Technical Planning Secretariat underscored the importance of inter-agency coordination in support of Paraguay´s National Development Plan, which focuses on poverty reduction, inclusive economic growth, insertion in the global economy, and anti-corruption and transparency efforts.
