Private Sector Track of the Fourth UN Conference on the Least Developed Countries

Held every ten years, the Fourth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDC-IV) will bring together international leaders from government, business and civil society to focus on actions and opportunities to help the 48 nations at the base of the global pyramid – termed the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) – achieve more stable, prosperous and sustainable economies and communities.

Successful development requires sufficient private sector investment to enable broad-based sustainable growth. Through the official Private Sector Track of the LDC-IV conference – “Business and Investment for the Base of the Pyramid” – participants can play a crucial role in identifying concrete, action-oriented proposals to address LDC-specific challenges. Particularly in the LDCs, responsible business and investment can assure the longevity and robustness of interventions. For participants, the conference will offer unparalleled opportunities to contribute to building, and ultimately benefiting from, the markets of the future.
