Giving developing countries a stake in the trading system will require substantial improvements in market access, reducing export and domestic subsidies and eliminating tariffs and other barriers to developing countries’ exports, particularly in agriculture and services. Here, the conference will consider how to make preferential and differential treatment more effective, especially for the least developed and commodity-dependent countries. It will examine how trade-related concerns can be linked with debt-relief measures and how trade policy can have a positive impact on poverty reduction and gender equality by increasing export value-added, generating employment and enhancing diversification. Complying with labour and environmental standards, and making the best use of regional and subregional trade and economic cooperation, will be considered as well.
