Develop a global partnership for development:

Address low-income countries' special needs (includes tariff- and quota-free access for their exports; enhanced debt relief for the heavily indebted poor countries; cancellation of official bilateral debt; and more generous development assistance for countries committed to poverty reduction);
Address the special needs of land-locked and small island developing countries;
Deal comprehensively with developing countries' debt problems through national and international measures to make debt sustainable in the long term;
In cooperation with the developing countries, develop decent and productive work for youth;
