The global landscape of trade and development continues to evolve. New actors are emerging and production and trade patterns are changing as transportation and technological innovations lead to a faster and more efficient means of producing and trading goods and services. Growth and development continue to be the driving forces of international collaboration and despite the many recent tumultuous world events, substantial economic and human progress has been made in many developing countries and regions.
Trade, aid and investment have played important roles in generating the means for transformative change that we have seen since the end of the global economic crisis. Building the appropriate skill set in countries, supporting SME competitiveness, nurturing innovation and ensuring access to quality employment will be critical to ensuring that this transformative change is sustainable and sustained.
