We have come a long way since 2005, when we launched the Aid for Trade initiative in Hong Kong at the 6th WTO Ministerial Conference. Each successive global review has deepened our analysis and broadened our understanding of the dynamics of aid, trade, development and their interaction. In parallel, more and more partner countries and donors have come on board as the tangible results of our efforts become apparent.
Apoyar el emprendimiento y la incorporación de las PYMES latinoamericanas a las cadenas de valor mundial debe ser una de las principales políticas de desarrollo en estos países.

To sustain future growth, many developing countries are exploring new opportunities through industrial policies to move up value chains, attract foreign direct investment (FDI), increase South-South trade, and tap new markets created by the emerging middle class, said OECD Secretary-General.
Economic growth has played a major role in lifting people out of poverty. However, there is increasing evidence that many of these people did not move up to the middle classes but into an intermediate state of “vulnerability”. Poverty continues to affect millions of people around the world, said OECD Secretary-General.
In a large majority of OECD countries, wage gaps widened and household income inequality increased during the three decades prior to the crisis. Inequalities have also been growing in many emerging economies and developing countries, despite their fast growth over the last years, said OECD Secretary-General.
