While for many people and open and multilateral trade seems to be a non- favorable solution in issues like poverty eradication and achieving equity around the world, UNTACD thinks the opposite, considering that Governments can use several means in transforming the world’s economy and growth by always keeping a “rights-based approach to development” and a sustainable vision of those implemented means (UNTACD, 2014) .
As for now it is necessary to wait how conclude the Millennium Development Goals' discussions and what will be its legacy for the MDGs in order to see which will be the route that this new agenda will take.
