The Director of the Centre, Javier Santiso, highlighted his pleasure that the minister of economic affairs, planning and development, Mr Montás, is taking a “direct a personal interest” in strengthening the links between the centre’s policy analysis team and the Republic’s authorities and research institutes. 

With the assistance of the economic affairs ministry, the centre is setting up a policy network on fiscal issues which will bring together both OECD and Latin American countries.
