Trade negotiations can create export opportunities for developing countries by lowering barriers to trade. But few countries today are in a position to take advantage of those opportunities, because they lack the supply-side capability and competitiveness. Here, the conference will address both sides of the coin – trade negotiations and supply constraints – hand-in-hand. It will look at how to develop sectors where developing countries have or could have a competitive advantage, how they can diversify to escape dependence on volatile sectors like commodities and how they can attract investment to build their infrastructure.
