Special Report on Aid for Trade This report was prepared by the Integration and Trade Sector (INT) of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) as a contribution to the regional meeting on Mobilizing Aid for Trade: Latin America and the Caribbean, organized jointly by the IDB and the World Trade Organization (WTO) in collaboration with the World Bank, and hosted by the Government of Peru in Lima on September 13–14, 2007. The meeting is the first of three regional meetings organized by the WTO to prepare for its November 2007 General Council meeting on aid for trade. The other two meetings will be held in Africa and Asia, under the auspices of the African Development Bank (Af DB) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB), respectively. A final version of the report, incorporating the results of the Lima meeting and including regional and national case studies on how to mobilize aid for trade, will be presented at the WTO General Council meeting on aid for trade in November 2007. The report was prepared under the supervision of Antoni Estevadeordal (Manager, INT), by a team comprising Paolo Giordano, Anneke Jessen and Jessica Luna (INT), and Barbara Kotschwar, Eric Miller and Sheila Page (Consultants). For questions regarding the report please contact Antoni Estevadeordal (antonie@iadb.org). The opinions expressed in this report are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official opinions of the IDB or the WTO, or their member countries. This is the Bank’s 2nd Special Report on aid for trade. The first report, Aid for Trade: The InterAmerican Development Bank’s Experience in Latin America and the Caribbean, was issued in May 2006 in response to requests by the Director General of the WTO and the WTO Task Force on Aid for Trade to support their work on aid for trade—specifically, to examine ways in which aid for trade could be made operational and might contribute to the development dimension of the Doha Development Agenda.
