Stephen Gruenewald our Managing Director was invited to be a speaker at the United Nations in Geneva. UNCTAD will convene an Intergovernmental Expert Meeting on Developing Countries’ Participation in New and Dynamic Sectors of World Trade in Geneva.

The main purpose of the meeting will be to conduct a policy dialogue on the issues and policies relating to strengthening export performance of developing countries in three sectors, namely, outsourcing of IT-enabled services, textiles and clothing, and renewable energy products including bio-fuel.

A key objective is to draw policy lessons in light of concrete experiences. For each session, we expect to have several presentations by Governmental experts and participants from the private sector, including industry associations from developed and developing countries.
