Cape Verde

    Cape Verde has made steady economic progress since lifting itself out of least developed country (LDC) status last year by benefiting from the coordinated support of United Nations agencies, a UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) meeting heard Sept. 22. The West African archipelago is one of eight countries participating in the One UN pilot scheme, which aims to harmonize activities in a bid to more efficiently achieve the globally agreed anti-poverty targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015.
