intervention made during the High-Level Symposia on Trade and Development, Dr. Ushi Eid,
Parliamentary State Secretary with the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and
Development, said the contribution to the WTO's Trust Fund represents a first step in a
special-purpose contribution from Germany to support developing countries in securing
their interests in the multilateral trading system.
Eid said an integral part of the provisions on special and differential treatment in the
Uruguay Round Agreements was the commitment by developed countries to support substantial
technical cooperation programmes in developing countries. She said Germany's contribution
would help meet this challenge.
