Abstract

The main aim of the paper is to find out how the exports of the least developed countries (LDCs) have evolved in terms of the commodity and geographical structure since the introduction of the main preferential schemes for LDCs - Everything but Arms (EBA) of the European Union (EU) and African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) of the United States (US) and later Chinese duty-free, quota-free program. The results do not suggest that preferential schemes for LDCs have contributed to a greater diversification of LDCs exports or an increase in the proportion of processing-intensive products in them. However, there have been significant changes in the geographical structure of the LDCs exports within the European Union, the United States and China.
