Their main objective is to promote equity between developed and developing countries,among other objectives they have which is perhaps as relevant as what I consider main.

They have good programmed areas,activities,plenty of resources.

They maintain values regarding transparency and accountability,extensive net work and other equally heavy safety nets.The recently concluded and or ongoing projects looks highly interesting.It needs definite appreciation of their work in areas such as linkages between trade,development and poverty reduction.

They are now helping Textiles Mills in India on ECO - LABELLING a project they have undertaken to help Textile Mills in India to get recognition as quality of products that the textile industry is now having to take up marking ECO - LABELLING certification a immediate future need to export textiles to EU countries.
