Australia’s overall DDAGTF contribution has now reached CHF2.7 million

This donation will finance technical assistance programmes and training activities for developing and least developed countries as well as economies in transition. The aim is to better adapt their practices and laws to WTO rules and disciplines, improve the implementation of their obligations and enhance the exercise of their membership rights.

WTO Director General Pascal Lamy declared “ Australia’s contribution is very important for developing countries. Through this donation, they will be able to find new trading partners and further develop their markets.”

Australia’s Trade Minister, Warren Truss, stated “Since 2002, Australia has contributed $2.46 million to the Global Trust Fund to assist developing countries benefit from multilateral trade negotiations. This further contribution highlights Australia’s commitment to help developing countries increase economic growth and reduce poverty in our region.”
