The 2013 report Aid for Trade at a Glance: Connecting to Value Chains analyses the strategies, priorities, and programmes from the public and private sectors in developing and developed countries to connect developing country suppliers to value chains. The publication was launched at the 8-10 July 4th Global Review of Aid for Trade at WTO in Geneva and can be read on OECD iLibrary.

We have prepared case studies focusing on Bangladesh, Colombia, Ghana, Rwanda, Solomon Islands and Vietnam.
