With only a few weeks to go before the Second United Nations Conference on Landlocked Developing Countries starts in Vienna, Mr Gyan Acharya, Secretary General of the conference, briefed the UN in New York on the progress made so far towards the event. Participants from governments of LLDCs, transit developing countries and donor countries, UN and other international organizations and the private sector will meet in Austria, 3-5 November, to shape the landlocked developing country development agenda for the next decade.
