We are pleased to invite you to a webinar Designing for Impact: South-South Trade and Investment – A Tool for Revitalizing the Global Economy Post COVID-19.
In March 2019, for the first time ever, the United Nations Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40) recognized trade and investment as integral to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. ITC’s South-South Trade and Investment Programme in partnership with the United Kingdom-based Institute of Development Studies jointly developed a methodology on designing and implementing South-South Trade and Investment programmes.
“Designing for Impact: South-South Trade and Investment”, addresses an important question – how can countries in the global South effectively leverage South-South Trade and Investment for development? The methodology is an important tool in the current scenario of trade and investment in the global South being negatively impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. It serves as a guide to policymakers, development agencies, and businesses for promoting trade and investments in a South-South context.
On 27 October 2020, ITC in partnership with the United Nations Office on South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) will organize a webinar to launch the methodology – Designing for Impact: South-South Trade and Investment – and host a high level conversation, South-South Trade and Investment: A Tool for Revitalizing the Global Economy Post Covid-19. The webinar will gather senior policy makers, trade and investment professionals, technical assistance providers, civil society and the business sector.
