The Network for Integrity in Reconstruction


The end of war presents both a formidable challenge as well as a window of opportunity for reform.

However, when contrasted to their development the changes brought through such aid is squat.  So, what shall be good for such countries rather than aid? To my view trade is the best option. Developing countries should develop their capacity to trade which in my belief will yield better economic growth than any type of support or efforts.

In the style similar to Western White Papers, it also showcases some examples. This is positive. Yet, the paper hardly offers reasons for government’s policy choices, and unfortunately, the unique selling point of…
