10-12 November 2016 Beijing, China
Capacity Development Workshop and LDC Graduation

Co-organized by the Secretariat of the Committee for Development Policy (CDP) – a subsidiary body of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) – and the Beijing Centre for New Structural Economics, this workshop will discuss strategies needed to successfully graduate from least developed countries (LDCs) status and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Government officials from 16 LDCs, and from Samoa (which graduated) will discuss the importance of enhancing their capacity to produce goods and services and related national policy measures for successful LDC graduation and sustainable development. They will also explore a graduation diagnostics toolkit, aimed at helping countries clarify the LDC graduation procedure and remove some of the uncertainty surrounding the process. LDCs likely to graduate in coming years will present their graduation strategies, and other countries will discuss their possible LDC graduation options and share graduation experiences. The event is co-sponsored by the Commonwealth Secretariat.
