Event: Preparatory Committee for UNCTAD XII: Hearing with civil society and the private sector
Date: 28 January 2008
Location: Geneva
Venue: 15:00 - 18:00 hrs., Room XXVI, Palais des Nations
Description:

A hearing with civil society and the private sector will be convened as part of the Preparatory Committee for UNCTAD XII.

The objective of the hearing is to allow non-state actors to provide their inputs to the sub-themes of the Conference.

The hearing will thus focus its discussion on the four sub-themes, which are:

  • Enhancing coherence at all levels for sustainable economic development and poverty reduction in global policy making, including the contribution of regional approaches

  • Key trade and development issues and the new realities in the geography of the world economy

  • Enhancing the enabling environment at all levels to strengthen productive capacity, trade and investment: mobilizing resources and harnessing knowledge for development

  • Strengthening UNCTAD; enhancing its development role, impact, and institutional effectiveness

The outcome of the hearing will be finalized as a summary report of the Preparatory Committee for the Conference.

NGOs/CSOs having observer status with UNCTAD and those accredited to UNCTAD XII and its preparatory process are encouraged to participate.
