facilitating preferential market access for ldcs
the wco’s practical guide to the nairobi ministerial decision on rules of origin for ldcs provides practical information on how to qualify for preferential treatment and detailed explanations of the elements in the decision adopted by wto members in 2015.
the guide aims to help ldcs achieve better utilization of the market access opportunities available to them through unilateral preference schemes by explaining key concepts. it has been prepared for members which play the role of “competent issuing authority” in exporting ldcs. it is also useful for exporters or producers who wish to utilize the ldc trade preferences in respect of products manufactured in ldcs.
