Introduction

A major challenge for most developing countries is how to use ongoing international negotiations and existing multilateral trade agreements as instruments for increasing their volume of trade and access to export markets and by so doing improve the quality of life of their citizens. A common constraint that exists among these countries is their limited capacity to both understand, and negotiate in the various international fora.
