Capacity Building on Selected WTO Issues


Asian Development Bank’s Economics and Research Department undertook a study on regional integration and trade, including the Singapore issues related to the World Trade Organization (WTO). This technical assistance (TA) provided an opportunity to present outcomes from the study, particularly, on investment.

Expected Outcome

The main objective of the TA is to encourage developing member countries’ (DMC) full integration into the WTO multilateral trading system through (i) increased awareness of new areas to be covered by the Doha Development Agenda for policy formulation, and (ii) assistance in providing technical inputs and sharing the results of studies with DMCs so that they can fully participate in the new WTO round.
