The Forum will bring together leaders from governments, donors, international organizations, business and academia to foster trade action in Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and inspire deeper collaborations and commitments in support of further LDC integration into global and regional trade.
2018 is a turning point for LDCs and trade, with a growing trade gap between developed nations and the world’s poorest countries and increasing instability in the world economy. The momentum we generate this year must lead to further integration of LDCs into trade at multiple scales into the future.  
At the Forum, leaders and practitioners from around the world will share what they have achieved on trade development in LDCs to date, with Aid for Trade complementing national initiatives, and will commit to doing more to ensure LDCs integrate and benefit from global trade. It will culminate in a call to action to leverage trade to combat poverty and inequality and to create a more inclusive trading system.

This session will gather ministers from LDCs and global leaders to discuss implementation of trade strategies and national-level plans in light of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The panel will focus on current and future opportunities and challenges to ensure regional and global trade contributes to poverty reduction and job creation, particularly for small businesses, women, and youth. Panellists will take stock of progress in LDCs to use trade to achieve the SDGs, and identify what is needed to step up efforts in support of the SDGs. The panel will pay specific attention to the role the EIF plays in supporting and coordinating Aid for Trade initiatives at the national level.

Cette séance réunira ministres des PMA et dirigeants mondiaux qui débattront de la mise en œuvre des stratégies commerciales et des plans nationaux à la lumière des Objectifs de développement durable (ODD) pour 2030. Les participants se concentreront sur les opportunités à saisir et sur les défis actuels et futurs à relever pour que le commerce régional et mondial contribue à la réduction de la pauvreté et à la création d'emplois, en particulier pour les petites entreprises, les femmes et les jeunes. Les intervenants feront le point sur les progrès enregistrés dans les PMA pour se servir du commerce afin d'atteindre les ODD, et ils recenseront ce qui est nécessaire pour intensifier les efforts visant à atteindre les ODD. On accordera une attention particulière au rôle joué par le CIR dans le soutien aux initiatives d'Aide pour le commerce au niveau national, et leur coordination.
