.. The rich nations, under 'Special and Differential Treatment' (S&DT) of the WTO, are obligated to provide the poor developing nations preferential access to their markets. Besides, under the rule, they are also to provide technical and other assistance to the poor countries so that they can meet their WTO obligations. In other words, the rich nations have been obligated to help the poor nations to build their own capacity. ..one of the main themes of a three-day regional conference of the International Civil Society Forum 2005 organised in Dhaka by a local think tank, the Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD) for advancing LDC interests in the sixth WTO ministerial to be held in Hong Kong from 13-18 December next.
Bangladesh Ambassador to the WTO Permanent Mission in Geneva Dr. Taufiq Ali lamented that the developed countries expect access for their industrial products to the LDC markets but protect their own markets through high tariff and non-tariff barriers for the LDC products. He, like many other speakers at the meeting, suggested that the LDCs should stand together firmly and demand market access to both the developed and the advanced developing countries under WTO's S&DT. The Forum has called for a common stand of the LDC governments and civil societies on trade issues ahead of the Sixth WTO Ministerial in Hong Kong.
