UNCTAD will hold the 7th Global Commodities Forum on 15 and 16 July in Nairobi, as an integral part of UNCTAD 14.
Under the theme of
"Breaking the Chains of Commodity Dependence", participants will discuss how commodity-dependent developing countries can adapt to the twin shocks of lower commodities prices and shrinking demand from emerging economies, so as to realize their national objectives and the 2030 Agenda.
The Forum is a free, public platform to debate critical issues at the intersection of commodities and development. It helps frame international policy discussions on commodities and features developing countries' challenges and experts.
A multi-stakeholder dialogue, the Forum attracts high-level decision makers and experts from the public, private and civil society sectors.
All participants must
register for the Forum.
As part of the Forum, partners can feature their work at the Global Commodities Hub Exhibition, which will include 33 booths on the KICC grounds.
Interested exhibitors can contact UNCTAD for more information or complete and return the
