Abstract: The Handbook is a result of the discussions and deliberations at the Coordinating Workshop for Senior Advisers to the Ministers of Trade in Least Developed Countries, organized in Sun City, South Africa, from 25 to 29 June 1999. The handbook provides an explanation of the various features of the WTO Agreements; it also reflects the preoccupations of the LDCs discussed at the Workshop with respect to various imbalances and shortcomings in the Agreements, guided by the experiences gained in implementation, as well as the concrete proposals for addressing them. The launching of the handbook was made to coincide with the preparations by the LDCs for the third WTO Ministerial Conference held in Seattle, United States, from 30 November to 3 December 1999. Meeting at Sun City, South Africa, in June 1999 in a Coordinating Workshop of Senior Advisers to the Ministers of Trade organized by UNCTAD and sponsored by the Government of South Africa and the UNDP, the LDCs adopted "Proposals for a Comprehensive New Plan of Action in the context of the third WTO Ministerial Conference", which have been submitted in the preparatory process leading to the third Ministerial Conference. In its draft form, the handbook served as a working document for the deliberations at the Workshop
