ABC of Aid for Trade #12
This monograph attempts to give concise
answers to the fundamental questions concerning A4T – from identifying
needs and potential beneficiaries to the concerns of diverse
stakeholders. A brief description of the evolution of trade-related

important insights into a better understanding of the major
difficulties faced by developing countries amidst liberalisation and
the call for complementary measures. While depicting the
implementation challenges of A4T, this monograph discusses a number of
reasons why market access is insufficient on its own to guarantee
increased growth and trade.
