Global Review of Aid for Trade 2013: “Connecting to value chains”

The Fourth Global Review of Aid for Trade examined how to use development assistance to connect developing country and least-developed country (LDC) firms to value chains.

Since its inception in 2007, the Global Review of Aid for Trade has established itself as the pre-eminent multilateral forum exploring trade and development issues. Past global reviews have examined how developing countries, and in particular LDCs, are seeking to integrate into the global economy, how development partners are supporting this process and the efficacy of this assistance.
