Description: Trade, as a means of implementation for the 2030 Agenda, contributes to developing countries’ endeavors to achieve sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth. Progress so far, however, suggests more concerted actions are needed to make trade better contribute to inclusiveness and sustainability. This session will discuss policy areas that require HLPF’s focus in the coming years and formulate recommendations on ways to accelerate progress on achieving the SDGs.
