Exports may fall slightly after LDC graduation, report says

South Asia Watch on Trade, Economics and Environment (SAWTEE) conducted a new study on “Nepal’s Graduation from the LDC Category: Implications for International Trade and Development” to investigate the implications of graduation for Nepal in the areas of market access, development cooperation, and trade-related policy space. 

“The report has suggested that since other preference-granting countries have extended GSP to graduated LDCs on a case-by-case basis, Nepal should also initiate dialogue with its trading partners for an extension of LDC-specific concessions and preferences for three to five years after graduation.” says The Kathmandu Post when highlighting the findings of the report in the article titled “Exports may fall slightly after LDC graduation, report says”.
