Updates - CD ROM Tool Kit II


An OECD Tool Kit for Trade Policy Makers II – The Market Access Challenge in the Doha Development Agenda


This CD-ROM Tool Kit II, like the first CD-ROM of this series published in September 2002, provides a valuable tool for governments and the public to enhance their understanding of trade policy issues and negotiating procedures in the context of the Doha Development Agenda (DDA).

The Tool Kit II puts together OECD work related to the DDA and is a contribution to co-ordinated international efforts to strengthening trade-related technical assistance and capacity building in favour of developing countries.


Users will find the video proceedings of discussions at the OECD Global Forum on Trade held at OECD Headquarters in Paris in June 2003, which focused on the market access challenge in the Doha Development Agenda. In addition to these video proceedings, interviews have been included with some lead speakers and staff members of the OECD Trade Directorate. The text of the speeches and discussion papers of the Forum are also available on this CD-ROM, along with 23 recent OECD analytical papers and publication on trade issues of relevance to the Doha Development Agenda.


This web site provides access to DDA analytical work that was finalized after the CD-ROM Tool Kit II was released. Users are invited to visit this site regularly to obtain the most recent analytical work done by the OECD on DDA issues.


The analytical materials are classified under the following themes:

  • Tariff liberalisation
  • Non-tariff barriers
  • Trade in services
  • Trade facilitation
  • Trade in agriculture
  • Trade in textiles and clothing
  • Trade and environment
  • Government procurement
  • Regulatory reform

The OECD analytical papers and publication contained in the CD-ROM Tool Kit II were selected among the trade documentation already available to the public and accessible through the "Documentation" section of the Trade Directorate's Web site. Users have access to a wider selection of trade-related materials through the Web site than the CD-ROM, which focused on trade policy issues of relevance to the Doha Ministerial Declaration. Click here  for a complete list of documentation on the Toolkit.

Given that the objective of the CD-ROM Tool Kit II is to enhance capacity building on trade policy issues, the Tool Kit II was distributed free-of-charge to the government representatives of all the WTO members during the Cancun Ministerial in September 2003. The Tool Kit was also distributed to participants of the Global Forum on Trade held in Paris on 5-6 June 2003. In addition, all OECD member countries received limited copies of the Tool Kit for their own technical assistance purpose. Free additional copies can be ordered within our stock limit.
