MDG 2003
• MDGs represent a firm commitment to a broader and more inclusive process of human development, rather than merely a scorecard.
• While regional and global partnerships are important to support national efforts towards MDGs, Asia and the Pacific’s success in completing this challenging task ultimately depends on national commitment and on the quality and thoughtfulness of national decisions.

There have been many attempts to measure bilateral trade costs. Earlier studies directly measured trade cost components such as: international transport costs; or the cost of moving goods from factory to sea port. To more comprehensively capture all components of trade costs, others inferred trade frictions from gross trade and output data. ESCAP, together with the World Bank, now maintains a global dataset of such comprehensive bilateral trade costs calculated on that basis (i.e., the ESCAP-World Bank trade cost database).
