What to watch for at the Global Review of Aid for Trade

By Adva Saldinger 29 June 2015

Devex Impact associate editor Adva Saldinger shares predictions and challenges ahead of the fifth Global Review of Aid for Trade, which kicks off Tuesday.

On Tuesday, world leaders will gather in Geneva, Switzerland, for the fifth Global Review of Aid for Trade.

This year’s event will focus on reducing trade costs for inclusive and sustainable growth and it’s no coincidence that it comes weeks before the third international Financing for Development conference.

Devex Impact did a series of video interviews in advance of the review to examine current challenges, potential solutions and preview what may unfold this week.

Watch the video above to find out what Arancha Gonzalez, executive director of the International Trade Center and Axel Addy, Liberia’s minister of commerce and industry had to say.
