Role_of_Trade_in_Ending_Poverty.PNGThe Role of Trade in Ending Poverty is a joint publication of the World Bank Group (WBG) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). It highlights how trade can contribute to the Sustainable Development Goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030.

The publication explores how sustained efforts to lower trade costs and integrating global markets can maximize the gains for the extreme poor. It also offers strategies on how to support further integration of the poor into global trade by lowering trade costs in a way that maximizes the gains and minimizes the risks.

It is a useful resource in offering interrelated and complementary areas of policy for maximizing the gains of trade opportunities for the poor.
