Opportunities in Strengthening Trade Assistance

A Report of the CSIS Congressional Task Force on Trade Capacity Building

Scott Miller and Daniel F. Runde

While free trade agreements and other intermediary trade agreements allow emerging nations increased access to markets, many low- and middle-income countries lack the capacity required to meet global standards. Deficiencies in quality of product, speed of transport, or quality of regulation can prevent countries from reaping the benefits of trade agreements, particularly with the United States. This report of the CSIS Congressional Task Force on Trade Capacity Building—cochaired by Representatives Charles Boustany (R-LA) and Jared Polis (D-CO)—focuses on how projects to build trade capacity can be planned and coordinated to maximize the benefits of new trade agreements, both for the United States and its partners. « less more »
