Veep in Geneva for High Level UNCTAD meeting

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is in Geneva, Switzerland to attend a High Level Panel Discussion organised by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

The discussion will be under the theme “Accelerating Progress in Building Productive Capacities in Least Developing Countries and Other Vulnerable Developing Economies.”

Dr Bawumia is expected to analyse the development challenges faced by Africa in general and Ghana in particular, and stimulate discussion on measures to facilitate greater trade and investment on the continent.

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), is the United Nations body responsible for development issues, particularly international trade as the main driver of development.

UNCTAD focuses its analytical research on the linkages between trade, investment, technology and enterprise development with especial “positive agenda” for developing countries in international trade negotiations. Its activities are designed to assist developing countries in better understanding the complexity of the multilateral trade negotiations and in formulating their positions.

Dr Bawumia returns to Accra on Thursday September 14, 2017. He was accompanied by Habib Tijani, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and other government officials.

    Family at first, belief in equality of opportunity for all later and now because there isn’t one pretentiousness of mammal of the left’ and there never has been. Had Labour been electable in the 1980s, I would have experienced less poverty as a child. I want an electable Labour Party not one concerned more taking into consideration ideological purity than people full of life off food banks. That does not point toward making excuses for those who can’t/won’t perform or nannying and handing out money, it means creating opportunities and supporting families in a pretension that leads them to total their circumstance. I am after that a realist, the in the distance left has never ended all in talent additional than ruin the lives of the poorest. I don’t assume in Marxism, I tolerate in the English social justice of George Orwell. It is his anti-totalitarian and pragmatic left that I will align too. He was after that the person who made me realise that if I habit to pick between democracy and a political party, well then one chooses democracy.
