Commitments in: Trade - International trade: market access, subsidies and aid for trade


...(c) To promote local ownership and broad stakeholder participation, the EU will:

• Continue to support partner countries’ capacity to establish and manage multistakeholder consultations in needs assessments and in designing and implementing trade and AfT strategies and programmes. In LDCs, this should be made in coherence with IF process. This includes specific support to small and medium enterprise associations and marginalised groups such as small-scale farmers and women’s groups, to participate in and contribute more effectively to such processes;
• Identify and share best practices on designing and implementing AfT programmes, in particular trade development/productive capacity programmes, in close cooperation and synergy with the private sector. In this context, the role and practical experience of multilateral trade agencies should be considered.”
