A body of international experts meets to validate the Decade Plan of Culture for Ecuador, drawn up by the Ministry of Culture in Ecuador and UNESCO.
Discussions focus on the plan’s objectives, institutional structures, functions and strategic guidelines. This activity is part of the Operational Plan 2008 approved by the Director-General during his visit to Quito in May 2007, and designed to reinforce the country's cultural institutions. The plan will soon be submitted to Ecuador's Constitutional Assembly for approval.
The workshop is organized by the UNESCO Office in Quito in collaboration with the Division of Cultural Policies and Intercultural Dialogue at Headquarters.
