The UNDP-implemented regional project Wider Europe: Aid for Trade for Central Asia is designed in line with Finland’s Development Policy programme and UNDP’s development vision. It promotes inclusive, green economic growth through promoting trade and enhancing national competitiveness and sustainable development, by helping poor and vulnerable communities to share in the gains from trade.
Aid for Trade (AFT) is a global initiative that strengthens developing countries’ abilities to capture gains from international trade. Much of this agenda is focused on strengthening domestic production and competitiveness, via the creation of enabling business environments and building economic infrastructure. Activities coming under AFT fall into five categories: (1) trade policy and regulation; (2) trade development; (3) economic infrastructure; (4) productive capacity; and (5) adjustment costs.
UNDP’s approach use a human centric approach to trade. By helping poor and vulnerable households and communities start, expand, and formalize small and medium-sized companies that can participate in cross-border and regional trade and global value chains, this project expands people’s capacities, as well as promoting trade and reducing poverty. By helping trade policy makers to take advantage of the development opportunities presented by preferential trading arrangements and to better understand the socio-economic and environmental consequences of trade policies; this project strengthens the institutional capacities needed for inclusive growth and sustainable development. Trade and human development can therefore be mutually beneficial.
Phase III of the regional AFT project (2014-2017) built on the experiences and lessons learned of Phases I and II. The AFT needs assessments undertaken under Phase I in Central Asia, the South Caucasus, and Western CIS identified policy recommendations and technical assistance activities to help trade better contribute to human development and poverty reduction. In contrast to previous phases, Phase III focuses exclusively on the post-Soviet region’s low-income countries, which are located in Central Asia. AFT therefore emphasize close cooperation with other UNDP flagship national and sub-regional activities in the region, such as UNDP’s engagement in the Central Asian Regional Risk Assessment and Central Asian Regional Economic Cooperation processes (particularly in terms of trade corridors, and engagement with other development partners working on trade facilitation and trade policy in Central Asia), and its area-based/community-based/local development initiatives (including those undertaken under the Poverty-Environment Initiative).
The project has three components, working on three conceptual levels. On the macro level, component I focuses on capacity development for trade policy makers; on the meso level, component II strengthens trade support institutions; while on the micro level component III focuses on capacity development, helping agro-processing stakeholders to increase exports. The project is implemented in Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan.
In 2013, Tajikistan became the 159th member of the World Trade Organization. With the accession to this organization, the economic relations in the country taken to another level.
