Under the slogan “From Decision to Action,” the UNCTAD meeting aimed to develop an inclusive and equitable environment for trade and development.

During the recent meeting of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), which was held in Nairobi, Kenya, between July 17 and 22, 2016, the following forums were also held:


4th World Investment Forum

7th Global Commodities Forum

Civil Society Forum

World Leaders Summit

1st Youth Forum

G77 Ministerial Conference


The event emphasized the importance of UNCTAD’s role in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and different documents were published in relation to this.


The president of the conference, Kenya’s cabinet secretary for foreign affairs, Amina Mohamed, called her political statement “Nairobi Azimio” (meaning “Nairobi Declaration” in Swahili), which she said was “firmly anchored in the heritage of achievements of UNCTAD since its creation in 1964.”

[V1]Soledad: hay un problema en el original acá, ya que está mal traducido. El texto dice: “… Denominó su Declaración Política “Nairobi Azimio”, que en swahili significa “algo que está firmemente anclado en una herencia de logros”.” pero en realidad Nairobi Azimio solo quiere decir “Declaración de Nairobi”, y Amina Mohamed después lo califica como algo que es “firmly anchored in the heritage of achievements of UNCTAD since its creation in 1964”, pero es su descripción.
