Landlocked developing countries are confronted with a range of unique constraints that inhibit full participation in the globalization process. At the same time, economic development and emerging opportunities for interregional trade are stimulating new trade directions which are creating a demand for landlocked countries to provide transit services to neighbouring countries.
