South Centre participates in the LDCs Ministerial Meeting in Lesotho

Luisa Bernal, Coordinator of the Trade for Development Programme of the South Centre participated in the LDCs ministerial meeting held in Maseru, Lesotho. The purpose of the meeting was to assess the current situation of the Doha round, particularly in terms of issues of particular interest to the LDCs, and contribute to strengthen the group's cohesiveness. This was the first time the group met at the Ministerial level since 2005, when ministers met right before the WTO Hong Kong Ministerial Conference.
