The world economic landscape has been changing dramatically as a result of economic, social and environment challenges. Critical issues have emerged at the global level that require a strong commitment and a joint effort by the international community.
Meanwhile, the general debate on trade, investment and development has been increasingly agitated with a need for reforms and to some extent a change in mindset.
As emphasized by the theme of UNCTAD XIV “from decision to action”, the way forward is to transform current assessments, discussions and decisions into policies and measures to achieve sustainable development and inclusive growth.
With the same rationale, this Trade and Development Regional Forum 2016, hosted by International Institute for Trade and Development (ITD), will capture the new world economic reality to formulate a set of recommendations for concrete actions in the context of developing and emerging economies in Asia.
Now it’s “Time for Actions”.
- To identify actions, policies and measures that must be implemented to stimulate trade and investment in Asia.
- To encourage countries in the region to collaborate in elaborating coherent trade and investment strategies to support SDGs.
- To raise awareness on the complexity of the global economic agenda and the necessity for policymakers and relevant stakeholders to act without delay in order to meet the SDGs by 2030.
