He is a graduate from the Institute of Political Studies of Paris, and holds a Doctorate of Economics from the University of Clermont 1 (France). Prior to joining UNCTAD in 1991, he was a UN economic adviser to various small island developing States (SIDS) of the Caribbean and Pacific regions. Most of his work in the UN has been relevant to the differential treatment of small and vulnerable developing countries, with particular reference to the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and SIDS. In recent years, his main activities have focused on contributing to the triennial review of the UN list of LDCs; analyzing the benefits derived from LDC status; and helping graduating countries achieve structural economic transformation, notably by reducing permanent disadvantages and enhancing economic specialization.
