The MDG Target 8.A is the main trade-related target under MDG 8, containing a commitment to develop further an open, rule-based, predictable and non-discriminatory trading and financial system. In addition, Targets 8.B and 8.C address the special needs of the least developed countries (LDCs), landlocked developing countries (LLDCs) and small island developing States (SIDS). One of the main vehicles for advancing progress towards a fairer multilateral trading system that delivers more benefits to developing countries is the Doha Round of trade negotiations of the WTO. Any delay in completing the Round represents an obstacle to making progress towards the target.
