DG Azevêdo: “Our efforts in the WTO must translate into real trade gains for LDCs”

Addressing a meeting of the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) Group on 28 June 2018, Director-General Roberto Azevêdo said WTO members need to build on the progress achieved on LDC issues in recent years. He emphasized in particular the importance of implementing decisions taken at the Bali and Nairobi ministerial conferences on issues that are of importance for LDCs. He said that countries graduating from LDC status need special attention and that efforts need to be made on all fronts to boost LDC trade and to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
