In my opinion, developing nation needs more of trades from their neighbours and other trading partners in order to make the economy of the country Strong. Once the economy of the country gets strong then the country can afford aid.

For example: India is a developing nation and keeps on focusing on making its trade relation with other developed nation. In order to make its economy strong.

Developing countries need trade, not aid because trade is better than aid. Trade is a platform in which countries run their economy and support many other fields of life.

Oh yes! Dears by my point of view developing countries need AID upto some extent. Trade is usual but sometimes it leads to some downsizing because of uncertain Exchange rates and that time we have no any voice to that challenge. Hence at that time AID is too much better than trade because at that time unfortunately, trade is dependent upon aid.

Hi friends,

I think that Developing countries need trade not Aid. When the developing countries use trade then, they are making their growth self dependantly. Taking Aid from develpoed countries means taking short cut to became the develpoed country. Always shout cut is not the apropriate way. Because of that we became dependant on other country countries. That make the country growth Lazy.

Hi, friends.

In my opinion, trade is needed for developing countries, not aid, because getting aid from developed countries make the developing performance lazy and reduce self-confidence level, so the trade is important than aid.

According to my point of view, trade is needed for developing countries, not aid. Because getting aid from developed countries make we developing performance will lazy and reduce self-confidence level. So the trade is important to developing the countries. Trade provide a platform for the mind to grow and enquiry experience on how to develop our country to developing to developed country. Without knowing the value of Demand stones? you have multiple demands on the hand means what is the use of it. It's like you choose to aid, not trade. So the trade is very important for developing the countries.

Thank you.

Developing nations or countries need aids in the short run. In many developing countries it is a reality that they do export primary products which they then import from the developed countries as finished products. Therefore many of the developing countries have a balance of trade deficit.

They therefore need aids from the developed countries in terms of industrial infrastructure so that they can improve on their technology. Through this they will be able to manufacture finished goods which will be competitive in trade.

Developing countries like Kenya need trade but not aid. Trade will provide the platform for minds to grow and enquire experience on how to develop yourself. It will also give room for mutual expansion of the mind on how to utilize the limited resources to maximize human wants.

On the other hand, Aid just makes the minds of citizens in the developing countries not to grow because of that habit of receiving get from developed countries.

Here everyone focused on Trade not aid, let focus on aid too.

1) Infrastructure is not up to the mark to boost trade as it takes 30-35 days at the international ports for loading and unloading the goods. Whereas in china it takes 2-3 days or few hours to load or unload moreover all the ports are not connected with railways and airports so need to develop the infrastructure to increase the trade.

2) Developing nations need both. Trade has huge limitations based on the availability of resources and skilled workforce. And it would take a long time to generate profit from the trade again all such profit is vulnerable to the fluctuation in the market. So trade alone could not help a nation progress. The aid is equally necessary, aid for health, military and infrastructure supplements the growth of any developing nation which they could not afford from their revenue alone.

3) That's where Aid for Trade comes in as financial assistance to build new infrastructure, improve ports or customs facilities in developing countries in short we want to help developing countries "trade" their way out of poverty.

4) Today, the EU and its Member States provide more trade-related development assistance than the rest of the world put together. We contributed a third of world-wide Aid for Trade assistance, or 10.7 bn, in 2010 that's a quarter of our own total official development assistance (ODA) budget. And the results speak for themselves a 10% increase in Aid for Trade spending on infrastructure has been shown to lead to a 6.5% increase in goods exports.

5) The starting point is of course that we use the resources available effectively. This means we need to target Aid for Trade right and priorities especially Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

6) Standards, services, intellectual property rights, public procurement, technical, social and environmental rules, infrastructure and packaging facilities are only possible because of aid in developing countries.

7) It is distinguished from humanitarian aid by focusing on alleviating poverty in the long term, rather than a short term response.

8) The talent which is in us is not given sufficient way to show and our talent remains inside us and later dies with our death.

9) The reason being that that trade is controlled by the developed counties and we have little voice on the exchange rates. Hence trade will produce nothing.

I personally think that the develop countries the once were the economy is in growing stage, in this countries people are in need of products and services and the demand is increasing day by day. However in the area of globalization purchasing power of people has increased so any new product or service lunched will be in high demand in developing nations.

It is obvious that developing country need trade without trade the development of the country would be at very slow rate. As we take the example of all developed countries like USA and other developed countries. Which have a trade relation with other countries up to a great extent. Here in India we have many brands of these countries like apple, blackberry etc. As comparison to it we are less no.of brands of our country here in these developed countries. And by having trade with other countries the quality of the product will improve due to great competition to be faced. On the other side if we are offering aid to any country we are making it helpless.

Megha said: (Jan 1, 2014)  
According to me, we as a developing country needs trade instead of aid. By getting aid from other developed countries, we will become lazy in process of development and will not be able to become self-dependent. Though we can become self-dependent as we possess the talent in our country that is needed for this purpose.

We should take help from other countries that's developed countries only at limited extent not always.

Increasing our share in trade will definitely help us in improving our financial status, in increasing our national income and in order to make us a developed country from a developing one.

IF today we catch a fish from the nearby pond and give it to a needy person, we would feed him for one time (AID) but if we tell him how to catch this fish (TRADE) then we are feeding him for the whole life. I mean friends we need trade not aid at all. If today we hanker after developed countries for aid somehow in the coming future we would be dominated by them but if we make them our trade partner it will be a good sign for a developing country like India.

China is shining like anything not because it was aided by any country but because it aids even the developed countries by its trade. Friends history is made by the brave person who used to live without any hope of any type of aid, they chosen a self dependent life and in the present scenario a developing country should be self dependent and it can be possible only by developing a good trade.

For developing country both trade and aid is needed. In case of India I believe we should focus on treading. Because Indian economy mostly depends on the European country.

That is why Indian economy is falling down. Treading actually helps any country to build a better economy. To improve that side India should focus on product base companies in India.

Of Course TRADE is always better than AID.

It gives the nation the opportunity to enhance their POTENTIAL, their INTELLECT, their THINKING and helps the nation to become SELF-DEPENDENT.

On the other hand, though AID provides shelter, food and clothing but in the end, it gives you a very demoralize mental effect on the society. It stops the mental growing of the brain. Its just as a beggar begging for money, and people are helping them.

My Friends,

Trade is better because that makes a country realize and explore its own potential, it gives the country a sort of Independence which every country seeks. Aid is not a cure to a problem, its an instant short term solution, but in the long run it won't prove to be any help.

Trade also brings a developing country and a developed country closer, it abridges the gap between them, which thereby results in an healthy and peaceful relation.

Trade also contributes to economic development, and other countries learn to value you.

Thus, Trade is a long term solution, which has proven and will keep on proving to be the correct path for any Developing country to earn self-esteem and recognition, and peace among countries as well.

Thank you.

Nature of coalition politics. Indecisiveness of elections. No particular party is getting the peoples mandate. Advantage of coalition politics in enabling formation of government. Flip side of coalition politics- a party with a handful of seats become powerful. Government falls before tenure. Fresh elections each time. Suggest a way out of this problem, for e.g. : once a party pledges support to a coalition, it will not withdraw its support until it has watched a governments performance for at least three years. Etc The future -will it only have coalitions, emerging political trends. Etc.

Of-course developing countries need trade not aid. Because if a country is given aid the country will never grow, it will never become a self dependent country it always need to beg before the other countries for their needs and after all it will still remain as developing country. In fact if we support trade instead of giving aid for a backward country, it will certainly make that country self reliant and self dependent which is far far better than giving aid and it will certainly help the country to rise as a developed country.

Developing countries definitely need trade not aid.

What happens with such nations is that they do have the resources but lacks necessary expertise in using the same.

Trade would definitely provide them technology to use the resources & entrepreneurial supply would chaelise the same in favor.

Whereas aid would due to lack of technology & experience just leads to adverse balance of payment & a nation wealth draining.

Any Economy has to pass through the stages namely, Aggrarian,Manufacturing and Trade. The faster an economy grow from aggrarian to Manufacturing,the more it becomes independent. Globalisation has even sprankled high competition environment in developing countries. Hence to struggle and compete with global standards, our companies/enterprises have to increase the standard/quality of their material and export as much as possible to EU,USA or other countries where the lucrative gains are possible. This is how we save economy. Aid is certainly not an option because its more like Do or Die. Though dying is not an option here really, in case of disasters a country(developed or developing) needs aid from all over the world to sustain. So Trade instead aid.

Developing countries are the ones where economy is in the growing stage. In these countries people are in need of products and services and the demand is increasing day by day. And in the era of globalization, purchasing power of people has increased so any new product or service launched will be in high demand in developing nations. Moreover in a nation like India where there is a huge population with different cultures the demand s also vary a lot. So any big firm whether its automobile sector or electronic sector will certainly have consumers lined up for there products to get sold. Hence trade is certainly necessary not only for enhancing development of these countries but also for increasing the living standards of people. Not only that the firms will also get an extremely good market to invest which will also enhance there trade and increase profit levels.
