We have no such Ministry in the U.S. (if that is where your translation is going) but hey, different strokes for different folks.

¡Suerte!

Planning and Development


Explanation:
If it's a source I think you should leave and indicate the country. And if you felt it was necessary, put a footnote '...literal translation Ministry of Development'. Alternatively, if the table is mentioned elsewhere slot in a reference to its source.

There is no exact equivalent in UK or Ireland, but there would be a Department of Planning and Development, somewhere, responsible for promoting industry, regions, employment etc.

The Ministerio de Fomento was a creation of the Franco


Explanation:
Regime which has no correspondence in most other countries. As of 1983, the official translation was Ministry of Public Works and the Economy. Then the Socialist government created a separate Ministry of Public Works and a Ministry of Finance, later on changed to Ministry of the Economy. The functions of the Ministerio de Fomento have thus been reduced to national development programs, although it still collaborates in Public Works and certain issues of Economy (financing highways, concession of licenses, etc.) in what directly concerns Development.

This has always been a problematic translation.
