Making globalization work for the least developed countries
United Nations Development Programme, Mar 9, 2008 - Business & Economics - 165 pages
The benefits of globalizations have failed to reach the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) for both domestic and international reasons. Internationally, LDCs continue to face daunting structural constraints, some of which have been inherited from their colonial past. This publication comprises the papers and statements presented at the United Nations Ministerial Conference of the LDCs which draw attention to issues and challenges facing LDCs and provide policy makers, practitioners and academics in LDCs with important policy guidance on the way forward.
