We were created by developing countries, for developing countries.

Every third day we receive a request for technical assistance from a developing country. In 2019, we implemented 227 projects valued at $44 million in 57 countries, many of them least developed.

Through our assistance, developing countries can better integrate into the global economy by transforming economies, tackling vulnerabilities, improving competitiveness, and empowering people.
