On this day in ...
... 1960, meeting in Colombia, the Council of the Organization of American States adopted the Act of Bogota, recommending Measures for Social Improvement and Economic Development within the Framework of Operation Pan America. (map credit) The OAS Council further approved the Act in a resolution on October 11 of the same year. As stated on the website of the U.S. Agency for International Development, the Act "[c]onceptually set-up" the Alliance for Progress, an organization that would be established the following year (prior post).
