Least developed country (LDC) graduation

Global | | Virtual Event

Only 5 countries have graduated from LDC status since the category was established in 1971. 12 are set to potentially graduate in the coming years, largely based on economic gains. But with COVID-19 slowing economies and trade, this webinar explores whether such graduation is in peril.
