President Leonel Fernandez of the Dominican Republic Friday highlighted the importance of education as a tool to reduce inequality during a meeting in Argentina.
Fernandez made the remarks at the 20th Ibero-American Summit held in Mar del Plata, a seaside resort in Argentina.
"There must be a connection between education and economic growth," he said, adding that "education is fundamental to protecting the growing mobility of our society."
Fernandez also downplayed the impact of economic crisis in the region, saying Latin America would soon recover to pre-crisis level as "it has maintained its macroeconomic stability and certain growth."
The two-day summit, bringing together leaders of 18 Latin American countries and their counterparts from Spain, Portugal and Andorra, will mainly focus on the themes of "education and social inclusion."
