It is recognized that, for the success of this new partnership, it is important to overcome confrontation and to foster a climate of genuine cooperation and solidarity. This improvement of market access will be facilitated by appropriate structural adjustment in developed countries.

World trade has continued to grow faster than world output in recent years. We are a recognised authority on a vast array of economic, social, environmental and development-related statistics.

The interactions between environment policies and trade issues are manifold and have not yet been fully assessed. While they are widely perceived as a success story, and certainly mobilised increases in aid and other resources, tracking progress in the early years was hard. An open, multilateral trading system, supported by the adoption of sound environmental policies, would have a positive impact on the environment and contribute to sustainable development.

It thus provides additional resources needed for economic growth and development and improved environmental protection. The removal of existing distortions in international trade is essential. As the renowned Hans Rosling remarked, statistics are not for the bookkeeping of the state, but should be understood and used by the people.

Increased attention is being devoted to enhancing the role of enterprises and promoting competitive markets through adoption of competitive policies. However, account should be taken of the fact that environmental standards valid for developed countries may have unwarranted social and economic costs in developing countries.
