Ministers from the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) in Africa came together in Milan today for the start of a three-day meeting which will discuss concrete ways in which they can ‘graduate’ from their status as the world’s poorest and most vulnerable nations.

At a Ministerial Meeting, co-organised by the Government of Italy and the United Nations Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States, high-level participants discussed ways in which economic growth can lead countries out of the LDC category towards a sustainable future.
