Message from the RIAC Chair Pro Tempore 2012

Message from the RIAC Chair Pro Tempore 2012
As Chair Pro Tempore of RIAC, I am pleased to deliver this first report of the Network, called “Signs of Competitiveness in the Americas.” In this publication, we draw attention to our commitment and diverse efforts to make the Americas a more competitive region.

This report presents over fifty cases where countries of the Americas have demonstrated their leadership and commitment to advancing innovative solutions for the promotion of prosperity and whose actions reflect the 10 Principles General Principles of Competitiveness which were established in the Consensus of Santo Domingo.

With this report, our countries now have a new way to strengthen our partnerships, and this makes for a great moment because, through RIAC, we can maintain a fluid dialogue in 2013. This will enable us to develop the concrete opportunities for collaboration which are expressed in this report.

The Americas, united through RIAC, have great potential to continue the path of growth and development of recent years. This means excellent opportunities to advance and build a more prosperous future as a region, as well as to harness the talents of our peoples.

Colombia reaffirms its commitment to this important hemispheric initiative, and I must say that, personally, I am very satisfied with what we have advanced. As such, and on behalf of the Colombian Government, I would like to thank all Members of RIAC for their valuable support and to wish every success to our work ahead in Panama in 2013.
