thesisposted on 2022-03-28, 18:44 authored by Sharmin Jahan Tania
"The main objective of the thesis is to examine whether improved market access for the exports of the least developed countries (LDCs) is a significant means for achieving sustainable development through trade. Further, it aims to examine whether LDCs face challenges in achieving their sustainable development in the existing market access regime... Recognising the specific needs of LDCs, the Preamble to the 'WTO Agreement' calls for positive efforts designed to ensure that LDCs secure a share in the growth in international trade commensurate with the needs of their economic development." -- abstract.
