Breaking the Deadlock on Market Access for Least Developed Countries
This paper discusses the attempts to better integrate the poorest and most vulnerable countries into the international trading system. A principal mechanism for achieving that goal is duty- and quota-free market access for the UN-designated least-developed countries (LDCs). The author seeks to make a pragmatic proposal to encourage the US to actively support the LDC market access initiative.
