Facts about the Commission

The Economic Commission for Latin America, abbreviated (ECLAC) was established by resolution of the Economic and Social Council on 25 February 1948. The commission commenced that same year and since then has been in operation. Moreover In its resolution the council decided to have a change of name to the economic commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, on 27 July 1984.

ECLAC is one of the five regional commissions of the United Nations and their main headquarter is in Santiago, Chile. The economic commission for Latin America was founded to contribute to the economic development of Latin America, coordinating actions directed towards this end, and reinforcing economic relationships among the countries and with other nations of the world. Later, this scope was expanded when the Caribbean countries joined to promote social development. ECLAC sub regional headquarters has two, one for the Central American sub region, located in Mexico City and the other for the Caribbean sub region, in Port of Spain, established in June 1951 and December 1966, respectively. It also has offices in Buenos Aires, Brasilia, Montevideo and Bogotá and a liaison office in Washington, DC.
