The Spread of Regional Science into Japan, India, and Latin America



The August 1962 newsletter recorded the spread of deep interest in regional science in Latin America that had developed in previous years. It then announced the First Latin American Congress of the Regional Science Association, arranged through the good offices of the new Centro de Estudios del Desarrollo (CENDES), at the Universidad Central de Venezuela in Caracas, Venezuela. The Congress was to take place at CENDES on November 12–14, 1962, and on the following two days Walter Isard was scheduled to conduct a series of open seminars on regional development problems. The theme of the meetings was “Industrial and Regional Development.”
