New framework to support sustainable development

Update: 6:00PM A NEW framework has been developed by Pacific development partners through the Hub and Spokes Programme that aims to support sustainable and inclusive development through technical assistance and capacity building in international trade.

The Hub and
Spokes programme is a multi-donor aid for trade initiative of the European
Union, the African, Caribbean and Pacific states Group Secretariat, the
Commonwealth Secretariat and the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie

With the current
project coming to an end in 2018, the regional planning meeting proposed that a
successor program should build upon current best practice and incorporate new
and emerging trade-related issues such as e-commerce into a future work

At the
closing of the workshop last Wednesday, Head of Cooperation at the EU
Delegation for the Pacific Christoph Wagner thanked the programme partners for
the excellent cooperation since 2004, when the Hub & Spokes programme was
initially launched.
