La Región CCLAC - Coordinadora Regional Chile

 

Con más de 600 millones de habitantes, la Región de América Latina y el Caribe es una de las zonas del planeta con mayor diversidad no solo en aspectos étnicos, sino también sociales, culturales y demográficos. Las economías se basan principalmente en la extracción de recursos naturales, siendo en su mayoría industrias mineras y petrolíferas, de manufactura y agrícolas las existentes en la región.

En la última década, la región ha experimentado una profunda transformación social y económica, la que ha levantado a millones de personas por sobre la línea de la pobreza y ha aumentado la población de clase media. Este fuerte crecimiento económico se debe a reformas domésticas realizadas por los gobiernos del Región y un ambiente económico global favorable.

Los principales idiomas oficiales en la región son español, inglés y portugués. Sin embargo, también se encuentran países de habla francesa y holandesa.

De los 46 países que componen esta región, 33 integran el CCLAC y representan un 20% del total de países participantes del Codex.
