LEAST DEVELOPED COUNTRIES

EIF works on the trade-related challenges of the world’s poorest countries, assisting them at every stage of the effort needed to leverage trade for sustainable growth and poverty reduction.

The EIF partnership is structured around the understanding that in order for LDC development to be sustainable, improvements in the trading environment must flow from the countries themselves. This unique approach guarantees full LDC ownership of their trade agenda, and the majority of EIF projects are co-financed by the LDCs themselves.
