Trade has an important role in ensuring least developed countries’ (LDCs) sustainable economic development. While the last decade saw LDCs’ collective share in international trade nearly doubling, it is still hovering at just over 1 per cent of world merchandise trade, and it is highly concentrated on a few countries and export products. In order to benefit from trade, both demand and supply conditions must be improved.

The majority of the poor in Asia-Pacific LDCs still live in rural areas and rely heavily on the agricultural sector for employment and subsistence living. It is well established that GDP growth originating in agriculture benefits the poorest significantly more than growth in other sectors, yet investment in the agricultural sector has been low and declining over the past two decades.

Least developed countries’ (LDCs) feature limited productive capacities, which constrain their ability to produce efficiently and effectively and to diversify their economies. This handicap translates into binding supply constraints and ultimately into weak export and economic potentials and limited generation of productive employment and social development prospects.
