For Norway, the pledge we made to reach the Sustainable Development Goals and to leave no one behind means an even stronger commitment to the least developed countries. Amidst the pandemic, continued support to increase access to trade and investments is more important than ever, and the EIF is a key partner in these efforts.
As a strong proponent for free and fair trade, Sweden believes that the EIF strengthens the opportunities for the LDCs to take full advantage of existing and future prospects for development through trade. Promoting gender equality and inclusive trade is crucial to maximize the impact of trade and development activities on people's livelihoods. It is therefore promising that this is one of the EIF's four overarching strategic goals in 2016-2018.
