The Conference


The Conference is the highest decision-making body of the UNCTAD and is normally held every four (4) years. Barbados will be the smallest country, and the first in the Caribbean, to host an UNCTAD  quadrennial conference. 

It will be the first major international conference on trade since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and will provide a forum to discuss practical ways to reset the international trade agenda. 

The Conference is expected to attract delegates and participants from across UNCTAD’s 195-country membership.
