Duty-Free Quota Free Market Access for the Least Developed Countries

UNCTAD provides extensive technical cooperation assistance to the Least Developed Countries (LDC) Group of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in achieving the duty-free and quota-free market access (DFQF) target of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Such assistance takes the form of research and advocacy for a full implementation of the commitments undertaken by WTO to provide DFQF to LDCs as well as workshops at national level for the private sector to take full advantage of the existing trade preferences.

Assistance is also provided to the LDC Group in the elaboration of studies on DFQF market access, To this end UNCTAD is producing and updating two handbooks and a database on utilization of trade preferences.
