EIF Annual Report highlights resilience of least developed countries despite COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the vulnerability of least developed countries (LDCs) to economic shocks. The 2020 Annual Report of the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) reveals that EIF projects carried out in LDCs have helped to support economic resilience despite the challenges caused by COVID-19.
From Benin to Zambia, the EIF assisted over 1,900 micro, small and medium-sized enterprises in 2020, enhancing their participation in digital trade and securing co-financing for many projects. The EIF has also supported policy makers in Bhutan, Cambodia and Malawi in drafting e-commerce policies and helped ministries of trade create trading opportunities to boost economic recovery.
These are only a few examples of project results laid out in the report. To find out more, read the full report through the link below.
