Trade, Investment and Innovation
Trade, Investment and Innovation are powerful engines for growth and sustainable development. The expansion of trade across the Asia-Pacific in recent years has been a key driver of economic dynamism and rising prosperity. Trade and investment, for example through participation in global networks of production, have created employment, raised incomes and helped spread knowledge and technology throughout the region. But not all individuals and communities have been able to benefit from the growth that comes from engagement in international markets, and too many barriers to inclusion remain.
ESCAP's objective is to promote trade, investment and technology and innovation for inclusive and sustainable development in the Asia-Pacific region. We work with Member States to ensure that the benefits of trade, investment, technology and innovation are extended to all.
