Aid for trade the focus of the third Brussels briefing

On 5 December, CTA, Euforic, and other partners held the third in the series of Brussels Development Briefings.

The briefing focussed on the theme: Can aid fix trade? The new Aid for Trade Agenda in the context of ACP countries. It consisted of two panels: the first reviewing Aid for Trade (AfT) multilateral and EU initiatives; the second looking at the financial resources mobilized for the AfT agenda, along with their scope and impacts.

The programme, presentations and video materials, speaker information, video interviews, and further readings are available at the Brussels Briefings website.

Earlier briefings looked at 'Advancing African Agriculture' and 'Challenges to rural development in ACP countries.'
