Tackling Global Poverty

We believe that when undertaken equitably, trade and finance have an unparalleled capacity to lift people out of poverty and enhance quality of life around the world.

We strive for a fairer world, where basic human needs are met and rights are respected, and are proud that hundreds of thousands of people benefit every year from our work.
