Sweden donates for technical & training assistance programmes
Jul '08
Sweden's Ambassador to the WTO
Sweden has donated CHF5.3 (SEK32 million) to the Doha Development Agenda Global Trust Fund (DDAGTF) for the activities of the years 2008 and 2009.

Sweden is the biggest donator to the DDAGTF and this last donation brings its total contribution to CHF21.9 million.

The Swedish contribution is a two-year commitment which corresponds to the WTO's new biannual planning cycle.

This donation will finance technical assistance programmes and training activities for developing and least developed countries as well as economies in transition.

The aim is to help developing countries acquire a better understanding of WTO rules and procedures, improve the implementation of their obligations and enhance the exercise of their membership rights.

“I welcome this new donation which demonstrates Sweden's commitment to help developing countries fully benefit from the multilateral trading system and better integrate in the global economy” declared WTO Director General Pascal Lamy.

Sweden's Ambassador to the WTO, Marie-Claire Swärd Capra stated “Sweden will continue to assist poorer countries and in their efforts to develop their trading capacity and understanding of WTO rules. We encourage other donors as well to make multi-year contributions to the DDA Global Trust Fund.”
