This last donation brings the EC’s total contribution to the DDAGTF to CHF9.2 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.

“I welcome this new donation that demonstrates the EC’s constant commitments to help developing countries benefit fully from the multilateral trading system and better integrate in the global economy” declared WTO Director General Pascal Lamy.

EC Ambassador Eckart Guth stated “This programme plays an important role in helping Developing Countries better understand WTO and make full use of the mutilateral trading system and the potential of trade to support their own development. I am delighted that the EC is able to maintain its strong support for WTO activities in this field through this multi-annual contribution.”
