Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean

Established in 1948, the Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLA) is part of the United Nations’ broader initiative to foster coordinated economic development schemes and relationships among Latin American nations. Their web presence is quite formidable, and for persons interested in these types of policy endeavors, this site warrants several visits. First-time visitors can get an accurate sense of ECLA’s overall mission by reading the headlines on the homepage, which draw attention to their economic analyses and monitoring of the UN’s Millennium Development Goals. Visitors looking for reports and publications can take a look at some of their more recent works, such as the economic survey of Latin America and the Caribbean as well as papers on foreign investment in the region. The site is rounded out by a very helpful interactive database which provides information on trade for 33 of the region’s countries, along with 15 members of the European Union.
