The Special General Assembly of the Organization of American States today approved the 2016 Program Budget of the regular fund of the hemispheric body.

The General Assembly, which took place today at OAS headquarters in Washington DC, was led by the Permanent Representative of Barbados to the OAS, Ambassador John Beale, who presides over the Commission on Budgetary and Administrative Affairs of the Permanent Council.

In his words during the meeting, Secretary General Luis Almagro highlighted that the document “marks a turning point that leads us decisively toward a program model aligned with objectives and results which will allow us to more accurately measure the impact of the Organization in each of these pillars at the hemispheric level and at the level of member states, and the results of hemispheric actions of an interdependent nature I have been leading.”
