IDB organizes 4th meeting of Consultative Group for Honduras

The Inter-American Development Bank will chair the fourth meeting of the Consultative Group for Honduras, which will be held in Tegucigalpa on June 10-11. The event will offer the Honduran government and civil society an opportunity to discuss with the international community the progress in the implementation of the National Reconstruction and Transformation Plan and the Poverty Reduction Strategy.

Honduran President Ricardo Maduro and the IDB’s regional operations manager for Central America, Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti, Miguel E. Martinez, will open the meeting at 9 a.m. on Thursday, June 10 at the Clarion Hotel. Honduran authorities, civil society leaders and delegates from donor nations and multilateral agencies will take part in the conference.

During the two-day meeting participants will analyze Honduras’ economic program, its progress towards the “completion point” of the debt relief initiative for Highly Indebted Poor Countries, and its efforts to decrease impoverishment. They will also discuss donor coordination and harmonization with Honduras’ goals and priorities.

As a basis for the discussions, the Honduran government will present a progress report and the 2004-2006 plan for carrying out the Poverty Reduction Strategy (PRS); its sector strategies for education, health, agroforestry and water and sanitation; as well as a report on the execution of the National Reconstruction and Transformation Plan.

This consultative group meeting will help Honduras advance towards a new phase of development, in which the continuous implementation of its PRS will make improvements in economic growth and poverty abatement possible. The gathering will also offer a unique opportunity to consolidate Honduras’ significant achievements in improving donor coordination and aligning it to support the attainment of the PRS’s goals.
