  • Kenya to host UNCTAD 14
    11 March 2016

    The Government of Kenya, represented by Ambassador Amina Mohamed, Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs and International Trade, and the Secretary-General of UNCTAD Dr. Mukhisa Kituyi, signed off on an agreement to host in Nairobi the fourteenth Ministerial Conference of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.

    From 17 to 22 July 2016, between 6000 to 7000 participants, including Heads of State and of Government, Ministers, and other prominent players from the business world, academia, students and civil society, will gather at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre (KICC) in Nairobi, for the UNCTAD 14 Conference with the theme "From Decisions to Actions".

    Being the first major United Nations Ministerial Conference after the adoption of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in 2015, it will be an ideal and unique opportunity for UNCTAD to define concrete ways to implement both Agendas.

    UNCTAD 14 will feature interactive ministerial debates and high-level round tables on moving toward an inclusive and equitable global economic environment for trade and development, thematic events and topical fora such as, among others, the fifth World Investment Forum on investing in sustainable development, the seventh Global Commodities Forum on breaking the chains of commodity dependence, a Youth Forum on shaping the world we want and a Civil Society Forum.
