    • UNCTAD
      By- Manohar Prasad.
    • About UNCTAD:
      United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.
      It was established in year 1964.
      It is the principal organ of the United Nations General Assembly.
      It deals with trade, investment, and development issues.
      It has 193 members.
      It has 400 staff members.
      UNCTAD XIII meeting will be held in Doha, Qatar in 2012.
    • Why UNCTAD came into existance ?
      The UNCTAD was established in order to provide a forum where the developing countries could discuss the problems relating to their economic development.
      The existing institutions like GATT (now replaced by the WTO), the IMF , and World Bank were not properly organized to handle the particular problems of developing countries.
      It was based on concerns of developing countries over the international market, multi-national corporations, and great disparity between developed nations and developing nations.
      The organization's goals are to "maximize the trade, investment and development opportunities of developing countries and assist them in their efforts to integrate into the world economy on an equitable basis."
    • Objective of the UNCTAD:
      The primary objective of the UNCTAD is to formulate policies relating to all aspects of development including trade, aid, transport, finance and technology.
      The Conference ordinarily meets once in four years.
      UNCTAD, in co-operation with other organizations and donor countries, provides technical assistance tailored to the needs of the developing countries, with special attention being paid to the needs of the least developed countries.
    • Meetings
      The UNCTAD Trade and Development Board – the Board manages the work of UNCTAD in between two Conferences and meets up to three times every year.
