“From Vision to Action” is the work motto, or slogan, of the General Secretariat of UNASUR. As a Union we take the initiatives of the various agencies of the regional body, and turn them into projects that benefit the peoples and citizens of South America. Our goal is to convert the shared visions into facts of integration through specific projects that enhance opportunities for economic, social and political unity while demonstrating respect for the reality of each nation.
These regional efforts focused on particular purposes are part of the Common Initiatives Fund (FIC, Spanish acronym), approved of by the Council of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of UNASUR in Lima on November 29, 2012. This is an intergovernmental fund, the Sur-Sur (South-South) cooperation, created by the Member States of the Agency for the implementation of projects.
