A Developing Country View on Liberalization of Tariff and Trade Barriers

The key issue of the Doha Development Agenda (DDA) is the following: What type of OMC rules would maximize the rate of development of developing countries? In this short note, we provide a short synthesis of developed countries disturbing trade barriers which affect negatively developing countries export growth. Also, we suggest some guidelines which would represent the ideal outcome of the Doha Trade Round from a developing country perspective.
