The United Nations Information Centre (UNIC), in collaboration with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), wishes to invite the media to a briefing of the Trade and Development Report, 2014. The focus will be on the situation in East Africa.

Background:

The annual Report subtitled "Global Governance and Policy Space for Development", reflects on fifty years of UNCTAD (and also seventy years since the Bretton Woods Conference), rethinks global development from a historical perspective and looks beyond the MDGs to the development agenda after 2015. It examines the role of the state in developing countries and asks how they can provide policy space for trade and finance decision-making in the future.
