WTO to champion importance of trade in supporting LDCs’ economic development

Trade will play a key role in helping countries meet the Doha Programme of Action for LDCs over the next decade. This is the message the WTO will deliver at the Fifth United Nations Conference on Least-Developed Countries (LDC5), taking place in Doha, Qatar, from 5 to 9 March. Deputy Director-General Xiangchen Zhang will speak at several events and the WTO will co-organize a number of sessions with other international organizations to discuss LDCs’ trade priorities.
