Mr Aragón holds extensive experience in Amazonian issues, international cooperation, public administration, and preparing, executing and assessing fundraising projects.

Administrative Director of ACTO since 12 January 2011.


As an international organization, ACTO coordinates procedures in the framework of the ACT and expedites the execution of its decisions through its Permanent Secretariat.

The various dimensions of its operations - political-diplomatic, strategic and technical - correspond to the different spheres of the Treaty and ensure compliance with the purposes of the ACT and of the Organization itself.

ACTO is without doubt a contemporaneous instrument of the ACT with a broad vision of South-South cooperation that strengthens its governments' vocation to build synergies with other players, nations, multilateral bodies, development agencies, social movements, scientific community, productive sectors and society in general.

ACTO coordinates studies and pilot projects on economic perspectives capable of generating income and opportunities for the Amazon region, thus fostering effective cooperation and integration among the Party Countries of the Treaty.

One of its functions as a regional entity is liaising with ongoing initiatives in the Amazonian territory in areas like infrastructure, transport and communications. One important element in the attainment of this goal is ensuring an adequate interconnection with actions developed by the Union of South American Nations (Unasur).
