Do Developing-country WTO Members Receive More Aid for Trade (AfT)?

This paper aims to assess whether and to what extent the WTO’s developing member countries have received more AfT. For this purpose, a system GMM is applied to a sample of 118 recipient countries for the period 2001–10. We find evidence that while LDC WTO members on average receive relatively more AfT than other developing countries, the difference has not increased since launch of the AfT initiative. Among the three categories of AfT, the positive WTO membership effect for LDC members increased for building productive capacity and for trade policy and regulation, but declined for infrastructure.

The study recommends greater emphasis on regional aid for trade as a means of improving regional economic integration and development prospects. While regional aid for trade faces many practical implementation challenges, experience has shown that associated problems are not insurmountable but do require thorough planning, careful project formulation, and prioritization on the part of policy makers.
