WTO/EIF – Trade impacts of LDC graduation

May 2020.  “At the request of the Group of Least-Developed Countries (LDC Group), the Secretariat of the World Trade Organization, with the support of the Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF), undertook a project to assess the trade-related implications of graduation from LDC status, in particular the impacts it may have on market access currently enjoyed by the LDCs, as well as their participation in the WTO. This study summarizes those impacts and looks at options for graduating LDCs to smoothly continue their integration into the global economy”.
