Financial incentives seek to increase countries’ negotiating capacities and enable them to take part effectively in the global trading system.

In 2016, the Republic of Korea established a new fund to help developing and the least-developed countries participate effectively in multilateral trade negotiations at the World Trade Organization (WTO).

 This contribution to the Doha Development Agenda Global Trust Fund (DDAGTF) will finance training workshops for government officials in Geneva and elsewhere.

 It will also help these members meet the obligations they have taken on in the context of the WTO and fully benefit from their membership of it.
