The EU Trade-Related Assistance (TRA) achieved significant results in most of the priority areas. In least developed countries (LDCs) and fragile contexts, TRA has often managed to stabilise or even expand trade volumes, thus had some success in one of its core objectives − that of increasing trade. However, it has had less success in the other core objective − that of diversifying trade for the poorest and most fragile countries. Ref. 1318.
