At the WTO Ministerial Conference we spoke to Dr Fahmida Khatun, Director of Research at CPD Bangladesh, about the role of trade in the post-2015 agenda. Fahmida highlighted the critical role of trade for development in the light of declining official development assistance (ODA). She pointed out that LDCs and low-income countries also face other trade challenges that go beyond plugging the ODA gap. These include a lack of diversification of products and markets, unfavourable terms of trade, a lack of infrastructure and skills, and regulatory frameworks, in order to take advantage of international agreements.
