Abstract: The experts consider that human resources development (HRD) in trade-supporting services has an enormous potential for sustainable development, and that appropriate action should be given priority attention by Governments, communities and enterprises. While HRD and training for trade-supporting services are essential for all developing countries, LDCs may derive comparatively greater benefit from related action and inparticular from cooperative action among themselves and with other countries. Having examined the status of trade-supporting services in developing countries andthe scope for improvement through HRD, the experts considered strategies and reached conclusions about action to be recommended. To achieve and support the application of effective policies, action needs to be takenwithin countries and by international agencies. The proposals set out at the expert meeting were related specifically to trade-supporting services, which will facilitate and significantly enhance those services' contribution to growth through the generation of trade, with positive effects on quality of life and poverty alleviation. Above all, countries should have a strong policy for HRD with respect to trade-supporting services and should apply it faithfully; this should be pursued so as to remain sustainable regardless of external assistance which may be provided beneficially from time to time. The role of the international agencies should be to persuade and to facilitate fulfilment of this goal
