Significant gaps remain in delivering on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the areas of aid, trade, debt relief, access to new technologies and affordable essential medicines. This report monitors the progress made in achieving the targets of MDG 8, including continued attention to the impact of the global crisis on meeting the targets set under MDG 8 and embedding any new commitments resulting from the High-level Plenary Meeting of the 65th session of the General Assembly on the MDGs into the monitoring process. Policy coherence is a central theme of this report, which provides recommendations to all major stakeholders on how to address the remaining implementation gaps.

Market access (trade)

At the High-Level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in September 2010, world leaders reiterated the important role of trade as an engine of growth and development, and acknowledged the contribution of trade to the attainment of the MDGs. In November 2010, the Group of Twenty (G-20) major world economies, meeting in Seoul, Republic of Korea, reiterated the commitment made at the September MDG summit, towards fighting protectionism. They also recognized “a critical window of opportunity”2 in 2011 for bringing the Doha Round of multilateral trade negotiations towards an ambitious, comprehensive and balanced conclusion.
