Morocco hosts 9th ministerial conference of G-77
Regional-Morocco, Politics, 9/11/1999
The 9th ministerial conference of Group-77 will be held in Morocco's southern city of Marrakesh this September 13-16.
The conference, to be held at a crucial international economic juncture, will pave the way for the first major international Conference of the millennium on development issues (10th UN Conference on Trade and Development/UNCTAD).
The Marrakesh venue will be an opportunity for developing countries to trade experiences, enhance complementarity and set a common strategy to counter market economy challenges.
The Group of 77 was established on 15 June 1964 by seventy-seven developing countries signatories of the "Joint Declaration of the Seventy-Seven Countries" issued at the end of the first session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development held in Geneva.
The Group-- which has become the largest third World coalition at the United Nations-- provides the means for the developing world to articulate and promote its collective economic interests and enhance its joint negotiating capacity on all major international economic issues in the United Nations system.
G-77 also seeks to promote economic and technical cooperation among developing countries.
