Global Trends in NTBs Affecting Developing Countries (with reference  to a Study done for the OECD Trade Policy Working Paper by Barbara Fliess and  Iza Lejarraga)     (con’d)

TBT:

It has been found that technical barriers to trade are severe obstacles to exports to developed countries whose technical regulations, standards and conformity assessment procedures may effectively serve as border-protection instruments.

Developing countries have to spur new competitive advantages and investment in technological capability if they are to overcome this problem effectively.

This scenario is less likely to materialize in developing countries, given the significant technological and financial constraints they face.
