Over 2,800 activities have been organized since the fund was created in 2001.

Deputy Director-General Yonov Frederick Agah, who oversees development matters in the WTO, said: “This donation from Estonia is welcome support to the multilateral trading system. It will help government officials from developing and least-developed countries to gain an essential skill-set, which can enhance their participation in international trade and create opportunities for economic transformation.”

Estonia's WTO Ambassador, Katrin Saarsalu-Layachi, said: “Trade can play a key role in helping the global community recover from the COVID-19 crisis. Through our donation, we aim to enhance the capacity of developing countries and LDCs to effectively operate in and benefit from the WTO's rules-based trading system.”

Overall, Estonia has donated approximately CHF 400,000 to the various WTO trust funds over nearly 20 years.
