08:30 – 09:30: Breakfast Dialogue on Development Classification of Middle-Income Countries hosted by H.E. Mr. Roberto Gallardo, Minister of Planning, Costa Rica
The Dialogue will discuss the issue of classifications in view of the unsuitable “income-only”-based classification for determining any development strategy for middle-income countries. It will analyze the criteria that should be applied to determine the stage of development of a country, and how these criteria can help building long-term, sustainable growth strategies.

Keynote Address
Prof. Roberto Artavia, INCAE Business School


09:30 – 11:30: High-Level Dialogue on Post-Busan Financing for Achieving Sustained Prosperity
The High-Level Dialogue will review the landscape for development finance following the 2011 High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan. The Dialogue will provide an outlook into “a world without ODA,” where finance will require more creative and effective aid delivery models to maximize its developmental impact. It will also cover the changing nature of the global aid architecture and the emergence of new development actors such as the private sector, highlighting the new roles and responsibilities of middle-income countries as exemplified by the proposed BRICS development bank or other mechanisms of South-South financial cooperation. In this context, participants will discuss the concept of a new global partnership for development which emerged in Busan and hold other related discussions on the post-2015 development agenda. The Dialogue will further address the challenges faced by middle-income countries in financing development programmes. It will discuss the lessons learnt from public-private partnerships, the role of trade and foreign investment, and ways to mobilize domestic resources for development.

The Industrial Knowledge Bank (IKB) is a mechanism of tripartite cooperation, which promotes the exchange of knowledge and expertise for advancing industrial and productive capacities in Latin America and the Caribbean. The IKB is a tested tool for better integrating middle-income countries in the development aid system. It fosters and coordinates South-South cooperation and creates development opportunities in three areas: (i) poverty reduction through productive activities, (ii) trade capacity-building, and (iii) environment and energy.
