About

This is the about page of the www.aitic.org website. It's purpose is to outline what the site is about, introduce its author and state its mission:

The agency's aim is to provide assistance to the less-advantaged countries (LACs) so they are able to benefit from the multilateral trading system and participate more actively in the important work of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) as well as other international trade-related organisations. The LACs represent those countries that have traditionally been inactive in the multilateral trading system. These several countries face structural and institutional constraints with regards to international trade. These LACs include 50 of the world's least-developed countries (LDCs) by the United Nations definition, as well as several low- and middle-income developing countries and a number of economies in transition.
