This event, organized jointly by the World Bank Group and the global Spanish Newspaper El País, will bring together heads of state, ministers and experts to debate the challenges created by one of Latin America's most impressive recent development successes: While the middle class surpassed for the first time ever the number of poor in the region, this achievement highlights the public service gap and multiplied citizen demands for quality service delivery.
