Commonwealth Trade Hot Topics

The Trade Hot Topics series provides concise and informative analyses of various trade and trade-related issues which are prepared both by Commonwealth Secretariat and international experts.


Aid for Trade and Economic Partnership Agreements

This issue of Trade Hot Topics examines the relationship between Aid for Trade (AfT) and Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs). The current AfT is taking place mainly under a WTO multilateral framework, although there is also a place for AfT in the framework of EPA negotiations. AfT can be a part of the development agenda of the EPA and can be a mechanism which links projects and programmes identified in the EPA process as necessary for the development of the region, and their financing.
