Iberoamerican General Secretariat
It is that the United Nations General Assembly, said that road safety was in Crisis. Then in another Assembly, it raises the improvement of road safety. With the Declaration of youth in 2007 a new upturn occurs in the fight against road violence. The transitional Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean chaired by Dr Oscar Arias generates the Declaration of San Jose, leaving the claims of Spain as the Ibero-American Association on road safety, then mediating the Iberoamerican General Secretariat, under the direction of Dr. Enrique V. Iglesias, who enjoys a prestige and unquestionable respect in the States of this hemisphere in an institutional vacuum, and who understand could result from its concensuar effort a viable and effective solution at the highest levels of political power in the region. In another sense, the recent meetings of the Ibero-American countries, Madrid and Chile, were scenes of interesting discussions, neuralgic issues relating to the regulations and to the system of authority of our countries, made presence, formulating an important series of documents, which we honestly expected you comment, even tangentially, were at the Global Ministerial Conference recently concluded in Moscow, so this implies the improvement of security in the streets, avenues and roads. Costa Rica has created a space for also interesting discussion, through the Forum of actors of road safety, which resulted in the so-called transitional Committee. After the Declaration of San Jose, which had alluded, we were surprised that to date there has been recognition of the same on the part of all Caribbean and Latin American Governments. What in my opinion has been for lack of an intelligent management that could withstand the influence of President Oscar Arias Sanchez.
