Development-centred globalization: Towards inclusive and sustainable growth and development

Development-centred globalization: Towards inclusive and sustainable growth and development

CONFERENCE: 13th United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD–XIII)

21-26 April 2012 | Doha, Qatar

 “The recent financial and economic crisis and the danger of a global recession point to the necessity of a paradigm shift in the economic policies of development", UNCTAD Deputy Secretary–General Petko Draganov said. “Rethinking – with a view to reshaping – global economic governance in support of inclusive development is likely to be a necessary aspect of a development-led globalization."

The conference will contain four sub-themes:
-Enhancing the enabling economic environment at all levels in support of inclusive and sustainable development;
-Strengthening all forms of cooperation and partnerships for trade and development, including North–South, South–South and triangular cooperation;
-Addressing persistent and emerging development challenges as related to their implications for trade and development and interrelated issues in the areas of finance, technology, investment and sustainable development; and
-Promoting investment, trade, entrepreneurship and related development policies to foster sustained economic growth for sustainable and inclusive development.

UNCTAD's quadrennial Conferences not only serve as forums for discussing major trends in the global economy, especially those that affect developing countries, but also establish its  programme of work for the following four years. The former Conference, UNCTAD–XII, was held in Accra, Ghana, in April 2008.
