Delegate: Mr. Martin Gallardo
11. Mr. Gallardo (Peru), speaking as a youth delegate, said that quality education for all and economic and social inclusion were prerequisites for sustainable development. As part of its national plan for productive diversification, Peru had helped more than a million young people escape poverty through training at its technology and innovation centers and other programmes. It was investing an increasing percentage of its gross domestic product in education [*4*] and had achieved almost universal primary education, while also providing scholarships for thousands of students to study at foreign universities every year. The national plan for gender equality provided for technical assistance to empower and train young women.
