Group of 77

Seventy-seven developing nations established the Group of Seventy-Seven (G-77) on June 15, 1964; these seventy-seven nations were also the signatories of the “Joint Declaration of the Seventy-Seven Developing Countries” which was issued in the first session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development in Geneva.

G-77 primarily aims to promote the collective economic interests of its members and to improve their capacities of negotiation on major international economic problems within the system of the United Nations. Actions of the G-77 are coordinated by a Chairman who is the highest political body of organizational structure. Alongside with the actions, G-77 submits joint declarations, action programmes, and agreements on substantial economic issues.
