Finland donates EUR375,000 to the Doha Development

Finland has donated CHF620,000 (EUR375,000) to the Doha Development Agenda Global Trust Fund (DDAGTF). Since 2000, Finland's contributions have reached CHF4.9 million.

This donation will finance technical assistance programmes and training activities for least developed countries. 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.

WTO Director General Pascal Lamy declared “I welcome this donation which illustrates Finland's commitment to help least developed countries integrate in the global economy and take better advantage of the multilateral trading system.”

Finland's Ambassador, Vesa Himanen, stated “Finland has continuously contributed to efforts in assisting least developed countries to improve their trading and economic activities. This contribution is a concrete expression of Finland's work for poverty reduction.”
