    The World Export Development Forum (WEDF) is a unique global forum dedicated to supporting export-led development. WEDF provides an issue-focused platform for policymakers, trade support institutions and business people to gain practical understandings in export competitiveness, within a framework of Aid for Trade and trade-related technical assistance.

    High-level speakers and participants working in complex environments share best practices to the challenges faced by developing countries and economies in transition, with solutions founded on the principles of partnership, inclusiveness and sustainability.

    WEDF brings together some 300 senior national and international policymakers, heads of trade support organizations, business leaders and representatives of international agencies from approximately 50 countries. Through a varied programme, participants increase their practical knowledge in the latest innovations, processes and policies, and form new partnerships and contacts through networking.
