OAS report on the drug problem in the Americas to be presented to ECLAC
Published on July 1, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

SANTIAGO, Chile -- The secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, will deliver a lecture on "The Problem of Drugs in the Americas" on Monday at the headquarters of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) in Santiago, Chile.

Insulza will also present the Report on the Drug Problem in the Americas that was prepared by the OAS under his direction in response to the mandate given by the VI Summit of the Americas, in April 2012.

The drug report, presented in May, was already the focus of dialogue at the XLIII OAS General Assembly, held in early June in Guatemala, and which ended with the Declaration of La Antigua Guatemala.

Comments on the report will be delivered by Chilean Senator Jaime Orpis; Chilean congressman, Carlos Montes, and Martin Hopenhayn, director of the Social Development Division of ECLAC.
