Summary

Globalization means that today, more than ever before, growth in developing countries and the reduction of poverty depend on world trade and a well functioning trading system. This volume reviews developing countries' trade policies and institutions, and the challenges they face in the World Trade Organization-where the rules that govern the international trading system are set.
