Regional: Facilitating Trade for Fragile and Landlocked States in the post-Bali Institutional Environment

Nonsovereign (Private) Project | 48204-001 Status: Closed

The proposed Small Scale Technical Assistance supports ADB's efforts to more effectively engage marginalized developing member countries with the international trading system. It will contribute to this goal by producing a multi-country study clarifying how countries can take advantage of the opportunities they will face over the next five years as a result of changes in the institutional structure of trade such as the upcoming Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), and the implementation of the agreements reached during the World Trade Organization's (WTO's) Bali Ministerial.
