Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The CDTA supports and is complementary to ADB's public operations in trade and trade facilitation projects. It is linked to a number of strategies and business opportunities presented in Country Strategy Papers, Regional Cooperation Strategy and Programs, and Country Operations Business Plans for ADB's developing member countries (DMCs).

It addresses a number of developmental themes central to the priorities of the ADB such as (i) fostering intraregional trade; (ii) focusing on low-income countries; (iii) supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs); and. (iv) helping to mitigate the impact of the global financial crisis on low-income countries.
