Summary: As the development needs facing the Palestinian economy pose new challenges for policy makers, Palestinian economic growth potentials continue to be constrained by structural weaknesses arising from historical trends. The new economic policy environment created by the Israel-Palestine accords since 1993 has made important contributions to enhancing the regulatory framework and operating conditions for revival of the economy, propelled by a vigorous private sector. However, a range of macroeconomic and sectoral issues remain to be addressed as the Palestinian economy prepares for greater regional cooperation and integration in the global economy. UNCTAD's programme of assistance to the Palestinian people has aimed, since 1995, to provide concrete technical assistance to examine problem areas and technical issues, advise on requisite policy measures and build the capacities of policy makers and private sector practitioners involved in developing Palestinian trade, financial and related services sectors. UNCTAD's activities in this area revolve around four programme clusters: trade policies and strategies; trade facilitation and logistics; finance and development; and enterprise, investment and competition policy. By linking the findings of analytical and empirical research in these areas to specific technical assistance needs identified by the Palestinian Authority, the secretariat has been able to deliver targeted technical assistance in areas of its competence. This has helped to attract growing support from bilateral and multilateral funding sources for UNCTAD projects to initiate reform and modernization in key areas of Palestinian economic governance, while developing increasingly cooperative relationships with other agencies that provide assistance to the Palestinian people
