Trade policy, including trade preference programs, can reduce global poverty and promote economic growth and stability in the world’s poorest countries. Unfortunately, preference programs regularly exclude commodities that poor countries can produce competitively, such as agricultural products and clothing, and many programs must be frequently renewed, creating uncertainty and discouraging investment. This session will explore how changes in trade policy can promote growth in the world’s poorest countries. 

The Trade, Aid and Security Coalition is a nonprofit project of GlobalWorks Foundation that builds innovative partnerships, educates opinion leaders and provides practical experience on international trade and economic policy in the fight against global poverty. More at: 

The US‐Bangladesh Advisory Council is a non‐profit, non‐partisan organization, working to strengthen the relationship between the United States and Bangladesh through public policy.
