Working with its partner agencies, the WTO also encourages the holding of national and sub-regional Aid-for-Trade reviews to ?road-test? Aid-for-Trade plans, identify priorities, and agree on how these plans and priorities should be implemented. These review events provide a platform to raise awareness of Aid for Trade, showcase ?real-world? examples of Aid-for-Trade strategies in progress, and create incentives for other countries and sub-regions to follow.
