“We have to try to find synergies between the two processes”, involving negotiations in Geneva and New York, “to maximize their impact on economic development”, Dr Kituyi said.
“That trade stands to contribute to sustainable development is not open to debate”, he added. The question is how to ensure coherence between positions countries are taking in the discussions to adopt a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their objectives in the post-Bali work programme. Such coherence is needed for trade to be part of a wider process that delivers lasting and inclusive economic development, according to Dr Kituyi.
