The impact of this SSTA is strengthened capacity and increased opportunity for Asia and the Pacific Developing Member Countries (DMCs) to participate in global and regional trade. The outcome is a more effective delivery of Aid for Trade (AfT) initiatives through an integrated and structured approach to providing information on AfT and assessing the needs of DMCs. The SSTA will include three components: (i) Asia and Pacific Regional AfT Review. A two day forum on 19 20 September 2007 will be organized in Manila to be attended by around 100 representatives from DMCs, donor agencies, regional development agencies, and the private sector in the region. The Regional AfT Review will, among others, deliver a practical and integrated assessment of the gaps, priority actions, and what must be done to step forward. It will also underscore the regional cooperation and integration dimension of AfT. (ii) Case Studies and Summary Paper on AfT in Asia and the Pacific.
