At the same time, there is a risk of re-labelling all growth promoting development assistance as aid for trade. This would run the risk of reducing the impact of the aid for trade initiative and increase scepticism about the potential of this initiative to effectively enhance developing countries’ ability to better benefit from WTO agreements. A potential way-forward would be to adopt a definition that is based on the objectives of the aid. That is, define aid for trade by the objectives of the activity to be financed, rather than attempting to define it by the type of activities it is supposed to finance.

Figure 8 illustrates in more detail the change in the share of aid for trade assistance in 2004 from 1994 (2000-2004 for TRTA/CB) by category of aid and by income group. For example, it shows that the LDC share of total TRTA/CB commitments has increased by 10 percentage points since 2000.

In 2004, the largest beneficiary group was the lower-middle-income group, which includes such major global players as Brazil, China, Egypt and Thailand, which received around 36% of all aid for trade. The share of the non-LDC low-income group has been declining proportionally, while the AID FOR TRADE: MAKING IT EFFECTIVE – ISBN 92-64-02693-2 - © OECD 2006 38 – DONOR SUPPORT share of the least developed countries has remained relatively stable at around 24-22% of total aid for trade (Figure 7). It is worthy to highlight that for TRTA/CB, the largest share is unallocated (33%) which is often destined to regional support programmes.
