It provides business associations with a valuable tool to assess and influence trade policy and related regulations using cases and examples of policy, legal and regulatory changes (both positive and negative) from around the world. It weighs the benefits and costs of trade policy options, which is relevant to both business associations and other stakeholders engaging in advocacy campaigns on trade policy issues. This publication is also for government policymakers endeavouring to understand the business implications of their policies.

Introduction

Export performance has been critical for the economic development of many developing countries in recent years. It has contributed to faster growth and poverty reduction. Exporting has produced economic benefits deriving from efficiency gains associated with exploiting comparative advantages and improved allocation of scarce resources. There are also dynamic gains in the export sector driven by greater competition, greater economies of scale, better use of capacity, dissemination of knowledge and know-how, and technological progress.
