The main objective of these two webinars was to help Lao PDR seize the trade opportunities offered by developed and developing countries to products originating in LDCs. The webinars were based on the UNCTAD Handbook on Duty-Free Quota-Free (DFQF) Market Access and Rules of Origin for LDCs and the UNCTAD Database on GSP Utilization.

During the two sessions, the presentation focused on answering the following questions:

  • Is my country a beneficiary of the DFQF scheme of my target market?
  • Is my product covered by the DFQF scheme of my target market?
  • What requirements does my product need to meet?
    1. Rules of origin (RO): does my product comply with them?
    2. Other requirements, e.g. mode of shipment of the goods
  • How can I prove it? Documentary evidence

The first session dealt in detail with the Quad countries (Canada, European Union, Japan and the United States) while the second session focused on the largest importers of LDC products among the Other Developed Countries. In addition, participants were familiarized with the UNCTAD Database on GSP Utilization.
