This annual report reviews recent economic trends in the least developed countries (LDCs), focusing on their efforts to escape the poverty trap. The 2004 edition, examines the relationship between international trade and poverty within LDC’s, and identifies national and international policies that can make trade a more effective mechanism for poverty reduction in these countries. It also reveals the obstacles faced by LDCs when they implemented deep trade liberalization measures in the 1990s. The report is a valuable source of information for government officials, academics, researchers, the media, and members of public and private sector interested in the social and economic advancement of developing countries.

It is also clear, however, that the links between export expansion and poverty reduction are not automatic, but depend on various domestic and external conditions. This chapter looks at how the trade–poverty relationship works in practice in the LDCs.
